    At the minute we have 10 lol. The little male Normal won't be staying here for good though hence why he doesn't have an official name(though I call him Nutter lol) :) We breed so nine of them are breeders and the little Normal is only of our hatchlings from last year. We're still adding to the breeder gecko's though ;)

    Above all, they are all pets as well :) I'm just putting that out there as I have had people say to me "Well if you breed you don't treat them like pets do you? You don't get them out, etc.." and the truth is they are treated like pets and are handled as often as possible. Especially Elysia the crazy girl! She needs all the handling she can get right now as she's going through what I call her teenage phase lol.

    You have some really nice geckos right there! Love the raptors! 
     
    Yea, the feisty ones need the most handling i agree!

    Thank you :) We now have two albino strains so have to be careful not to mix them. Maybe one day we'll have all three lol.

    Yep, she's managed to actually get me once(oh so glad Leo's don't hurt!) and has gone for me a second time(right before that photo actually!) but missed XD
     
    She's always been a bit crazy since we got her last year and we've handled her as much as possible without it being too much(gauging her reactions each time). She started to improve and has now relapsed back to "I hate everything!!" so we'll see if she improves again or if she's always going to be a "no touchy unless necessary" gecko.

    Yea, when i got my new carrot tail, i warmed him up to room temp. in a bucket, and when i went to pick him up he kept squealing, and when i got him in my hand he slowly opened his mouth and bit the crap out of my thumb, and he drew blood haha. He was just stressed from shipping, he didnt bite me when i took him out two days later lol

    See if she'd done it the day we got her I could understand it... But it's months since we got her and like I say, she started calming down. When we got her she didn't bite, she just flailed all the time when you touched her. But now she's taken up biting too :/

    Leos are probably the best reptile I've ever owned.
