Here are a couple pictures of my male N. levis pilbarensis. Anyone else have any pics and/or experiences with this species? Just looking for some conversation.

Good looking geckos, Gene. When did you get them?

I got him about 3 weeks ago. I've been interested in the species for a long time and had the chance to get a nice male so I jumped on it. Now I need a female, but am having a little difficulty finding one. I found 1 and the guy wants $1450 for her. She is a gorgeous yearling, patternless, poss. het albino. Unfortunately a little out of my price range at the moment. I also emailed Scott at TLC geckos and he may be able to help me out with a female in a few weeks (hopefully), but doesn't know what he'll want for a single female yet.

Did you ever find a female for your male?

I've been talking with Derek Wong about a female since I made this post. He has one baby that may be a female. Hopefully I'll know here in a few days.

Derek has a nice collection. I got some of my Underwoodisaurus from him.

VERY nice collection! :D Hopefully the baby that he has does turn out to be a female. If it does, I will post pics when I get her.

I guess that I missed your question. You first need to upload your photos to the net. You then can use the img tags on here:


Remember to close the tags!! I left a space between the image tags for this example.

Great Pics

This is the one sub species of Levis that I want to concentrate on. The demand for this species is going to be huge in Australia. The Nephrurus Levis Pilbarensis has only started to become available through the odd breeders in the last year. The amazing thing is the patterning & colours which is always different. They go for about AUD$250.00 per juvenile.

I bought a pair of clutch mates about 4 months ago & the guy had another juvenile on its own - it was really runty so he said ok $180.00 for it. Damn lucky I did cause its a female and now after pumping the food into her shes the same size as the others and patterning to die for. So I have ended up with 2 females & 1 male..........pretty happy.

I guess they are so expensive in the USA as Australia doesnt allow export of its wildlife. Which means what is around is all there is and its upto breeding to increase the numbers.

Hey guys & gals I saw a post where someone was offered a female for USD$1450.00, if I was that person I would say "GET IT" as they are very easy to breed & you would definately get your money back 3 fold from selling juveniles.

They have been know to breed at 7-8 months of age, thats obviously due to mass feeding. But I would wait till they are older.

I love this species, I really do.

Stunning pilbarensi! I'll be getting some in the very near future. I had a pair of hets in '93(?), from Casey Lazik (I traded something like 20 ciliaris juveniles!). Unfortunately, my female perished only two weeks after getting them..I had a lone male for years before selling him off. I'm anxious to work with them again!

Real nice.
Love the pics

They are a neat subspecies, but have stayed away from them due to hearing that they are weak animals, and most don't do well. Is that still the case with more animals being brought in from Europe?

Derek, how's it going..., Long time, not talk. That's a nice occidentalis Derek/Gene. I have some just like that.

I haven't heard, and keep Pilbarensis and never found them to be soft or difficult. The only species I am aware to be like that is laevisseum & Deletani.
