    Question GIANT giant geckos

    Does anyone here own big giant geckos? I read the big Rhac book straight through and saw the Giant GT geckos owned by Philip Tremper. They were 17 inches! I fanyone else owns these, or just some big leachies please post pics. I want to see how big they really get! Also, are they at all handleable like sresties? Thanks!

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe theres only a few Type C out there. The waiting list for offspring is years long. Big leachies rock!

    No, I'm referring to Type C Grande Terre R.l. leachianus. Isle C (Bayonnaise) are R.l. henkeli. Type C are the "Giant" Giants - 17" total length . I think there were literally only 2-4 adults ever brought into captivity. Check out the Rhac Book (Repashy, Fast, de Vosjoli) to learn more.

    I'm having a really hard time of fining pics of type C animals in general, especially any pics that have something you can compare their size with in them. Can anyone help me out here?
    1.0.0 - Eunectes murinus (Green Anaconda)
    0.1.0 - Chamydosaurus kingii (Frilled Dragon)
    ∞.∞.∞ - Rhacodactylus "all-of-'em-us"
    And many other species of Diplodactyline and Carphodactyline gecko

    Phillipe has A x C juveniles available from time to time. In theory I would imagine that they would get rather large. I can think of only a handful of people who have pure type C.
