    Not to make you mad but I found a garglet in the area we are moving for 20 dollars. Really wished I had moved and gotten though.

    Check reptile expos or Craigslist to find garglets

    I'm not mad at all And, actually I called a place today about an hour from me that said they have 3 gargs, one is about a year and 6 inches and the other two were born late last year that are about 4 inches. I'm super excited to FINALLY find someone that has them! The problem is that the only day I can really drive over there this week is Thursday, but the exo terra I ordered isn't supposed to be arriving until Friday..... so I have to figure out some temporary housing....

    Good Luck!!!
    Please post some pictures of your gargoyle after you get.
    Wish I am getting a new gecko. I am a little jealous.

    I don't think you'll drive us nuts. We all get excited as you when we get a new pet.

    @Flint

    Did you ever come to a decision? I didn't mean to hijack your post

    i have a leopard gecko, but after doing some research, i found that gargoyle geckos are easier to care for. they also can eat plants and insects,unlike leopard geckos which are strictly insectivorous. unlike the gargoyle gecko, the leopard gecko doesn't look depressing. yes i know there are different colored variations of the gargoyle gecko, but the price for a vivid, colored one is at least $100. so if you were to get one of the two lizards i would go for a leopard gecko due to the life span, which is around 20 years for males, and 18 years for females.

    As a long-term crested gecko owner (almost the same as gargoyle), and a recent leopard gecko enthousiast, I'd recommend a leopard gecko if you want to handle them. They just feel less fragile when handling, which is a great thing for a beginner. And, let's be honest, somewhere soon, you'll have both, and maybe many more, so a leopard is great to gain experience.
    About owning many: you might think you don't have space, but soon you'll realize you can live without whatever avoids you putting a tank on top of that table/drawer you're looking at now
