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.

THRUST

Male flame, 29 grams

DIRGE

Male flame, 32g
(Probable clutchmate to Thrust)

HIJACK

Female brindle, 42g

CHEETOR

Male patternless dalmation, 50g

CRITA

Female brindle, 57g

QUAKKE

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


Quakke again, unfired

BLACKOUT

Male bicolor, 23g

RUNG

Male flame/harlequin, 24g

DRAG STRIP

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. :)
