  • What would you call his beautiful girl?

    Hi,
    I'm going to be getting a trio of geckos from someone and I'm wondering what you guys think they are. I'm definitely going to get the red female and the male. I'm not sure if I'll be getting the dark female with them. The girl wants $75 for each, do you think they are worth it? Do you know what morphs they are?

    Oh, I love that dark girl!!! $75 seems a great price for them!
    First looks like a red/orange-ish bicolor
    Dark one looks like...well...I'm not sure. There may be some flame pattern there but I can't tell
    Male...also can't tell since he's covered up. I'd ask for some better pics of each.

      I say get them all! They are a red patternless, dark tiger or buckskin, and the one on the bottom of the pile looks like a harly, I could be wrong. Need a full body shot!
      Crested addiction... can't seem to break it.

        personally i wouldn't pay $75 for the dark female, but i find geckos just like her at the petcos near my house, and i'm not really into dark patternless geckos. that's my own preference though, and if you like her, then i think $75 isnt a bad price since she's an adult female. the red female is definitely worth $75 imo, and the male as well, since he looks like a nicely contrasted tiger/ flame.

        if you like them as pets, then i'd say go for it. but if you're interested in buying them to breed as a trio, i'd personally only get the red female, and find a nice male to pair with her.

          If you are finding dark geckos like that at petco, I need to check mine out! That girl isn't perfect, but with selective breeding you could start producing nice dark geckos. I don't know, I like dark :P

              Thank you guys so much for the opinions. That makes me even more excited for them. I love the red one and think the male is pretty cool too. They have all been living together so I'm sure I'll be having eggs whether I want to or not (I do though :-)) I'm still on the fence about the dark female though. I love dark geckos but don't generally like patternless ones. My husband on the other hand, likes patternless geckos but not dark ones. It would be really cool to see what she'll produce with that male (she has already been laying eggs according to her owner). Anyway, here are a couple of better pictures to make it easier for you guys to identify maybe.

                  I would jump on that red if I were you, she's beautiful! The male is good looking as well, but the combination of the two leaves me wondering what the heck kind of offspring you will have....

                  I'm a fan of all patterns/colors of geckos... the dark one looks way better fired up... I would find her a dark male if I were to breed her... not with the male she's with now.

                  Good group, love to hear what kind of hatchlings come from the pairing!

                        Thanks everyone :-) I am so excited for the red one and the male. I have always wanted a red one but nice ones are usually so expensive. I can't believe the deal I'm getting on her. I'm still on the fence about the dark one. I probably won't make up my mind until last minute. Since she's already been bred to the male, I don't want to get overwhelmed with babies. At the same time though, it would be fun to see how the babies come out. I'll keep you guys updated about whether I get her or not and I'll post pictures of any babies I end up with from either of those females.

                          Update: The deal has been sweetened

                          So the deal has gotten even better because she's selling me her three babies too. Here are some pics of them. Any opinions on what they are?
                          http://www.flickr.com/photos/34641758@N07/5688827856/ Definitely some dalmation spots on this one and some type of pinning?

                          http://www.flickr.com/photos/34641758@N07/5688255833/ No idea on this guy, either patternless or light tiger?

                          http://www.flickr.com/photos/34641758@N07/5688255795/ and I think this guy is a harley. I think these guys are beautiful :-)

                            The last one is a beauty! Definitely get that one...

                            The first one looks like it has reverse pinning going on, but someone please correct me if this is off. We had a young one that started as plain as can be... started getting this similar pin, and then all on the dorsal went darker.

                            The second doesn't look patterness to me... it seems like a brown tiger (looks chocolately to me!)
