    Meet Chubbicas AKA Pudge, Podge, Chubs and Pudding

    Bought at the very end of April from Gargoyle Queen

    Born February 14th of this year. Sex unknown, weighs in at a rotund 4.4 grams

    Have not been able to get Chubs to fire up for me yet, so mellow...

    The minute S/He was unboxed

      S/he's a cutie, quite calm and handles well. Seems determined to make it's aim in life to jump on my face though

      I know the striped Gargs are more striking, but I love the blotchy ones.
      The first photo Chubs had sphagnum moss from the deli cup on it, I know, it looks like poop. Plus you can just see where Chubs is about to go into shed, just starting to peel on the end of the nose.

        When I was looking for a Garg I noticed that opposite to the Crested Gecko world there were a LOT more females available than males.
        When looking for a Crestie I would have had to pay a lot extra for a female and there just weren't that many to buy anyway.
        When looking for a Garg, most of the sexed ones up for sale were females, with barely any sexed males for sale at all.

        Just a quick browse around told me that the incubation temperature of the eggs can be a deciding factor of what sex comes out of the egg.
        Is that true?
        And if true, are all the breeders incubating their eggs at temps airing towards the female hatchling?

        I am not planning to breed and so really wanted a male Garg to avoid all the complications of a female laying infertile eggs, female becoming eggbound, and the calcium problems that come with egg production, even if said female has not been bred.

        I finished up getting an unsexed baby because there were so very few males on the market to choose from.

          There is some evidence to suggest that temperature might play a role on sex determination of gargs, but it's not a hard fact as in such species as leopard geckos. For many years there has been a skewed sex ratio on the market, with more females being available than males but recently this ratio has evened out and it's pretty even.

              I wouldn't say that striped gargs are more striking than blotched ones. Pretty!

                I can't get over the way Gargoyle's tiny little nails feel on my skin. I have only ever felt the Cresties and they tend to cling rather than grab. Gargs have their tiny nails and they hug Awwwwwww
