    Default NARBC Pick Ups

    So I went to NARBC this weekend, my first time going and I didn't know what to expect... all I know is I'll be back it was amazing and all the different reptiles I'd never seen in person before. I'm going to be doing A LOT of saving for my next one, it'll probably be Arlington again next year as I want to really be able to save.

    These are the three Geckos I got and brought home, Rouge is probably my favorite out of the 3 looks wise and Waffle is my favorite personality wise... she acts like a waffle.

    Rouge 5g (no pores yet) from Alpha Gecko (This one is probably going to be a Super Dali when grown, spots hide very well when fired. I can't even count how many it has right now)

    Such pretty guys! I drooled over Gorgeous Gecko's cresties as well, but didn't make it home with one.

    I believe two vendors were there that were Crested Geckos only, but I'd say another 5-10 booths had Cresties among their snakes, frogs and other geckos. I could be wrong on this, I don't have my map of NARBC in front of me.

    I agree jackal, I wish I'd had more money I'd left with one... I just looked at the map and that gecko came from Holy Grail Gecko not Gorgeous Gecko sadly x.x my mind was so flippy from lack of sleep.

    Gorgeous Geckos did have some Gargs but they sold within 10 minutes of me being there. I snagged one but its sibling and parents sold like hot cakes.

    Love Rouge as well! Any chance of some close ups of that one?

    I saw that, I was actually standing there when they sold, all but two babies and the parents sold to the same guys. They were going around buying boxes of reptiles, really wish I could do that one day lol.

    I'm gonna be playing with updated photos on friday of all my guys so I can do that for it, I'll be taking 'em outside. Hopefully Rouge will be fired down so spots can be seen.

    Baha, you were right next to me then! Yeah that couple was disappointed, they wanted both the sibs. My friend was talking about coming back and I was no you don't understand, you walk away and it's gone. So I told him I wanted to buy it and the couple was right behind me and bought all of them lmao.

    Anyway, I look forward to the pics!
    This is also off topic but what kind of camera do you use?

    Just for the record, that gecko was NOT produced by Mike @ Alpha Geckos.
    That female is from John(Jaspersail), and is of Chester lines.
    She was my gecko that I sent up to Arlington with Carl who was working Mike's table with him since I couldn't make it.
    Hard to see in your pics, but she fires up bright orange. I have more pics of her if you're interested...

    FYI - Her name is Marilyn(cause of her beauty mark).
