An Accounting of Geckos

On April 14th I did a photoshoot of all the crested geckos in our collection at the time. This is the result.


Male flame, 29 grams


Male flame, 32g
(Probable clutchmate to Thrust)


Female brindle, 42g


Male patternless dalmation, 50g


Female brindle, 57g


Female harlequin, 51g, fired up
(This gecko is obese. Don't let your gecko be as fat as Quakke.)

Quakke again, unfired


Male bicolor, 23g


Male flame/harlequin, 24g


Unsexed high-percentage pinstripe harlequin, 7g

Oh my goodness look at the cuties. Rung! From that angle, the eyes look very much like Rung's glasses.

Also, I know nothing about geckos, but why some have tails and some not? Do they lose them? Because I'm not sure if I should feel bad about thinking that the little stubby butts are cute. ^_^;

(I'll never tell! :D)

Aha, it IS geckos that do that, then. I remember learning about defensive tail dropping, but couldn't remember which lizards did it. So yes, tails or not, they are all super cute. :)
