I re-introduced my male scorpion gecko to his female partners a couple of weeks ago and I'm hoping for a good breeding year! They've been cooled for 2 months and they didn't like that so I have introduced them a month earlier than I had hoped.

Here are pics of them

They have just recently picked up on their eating.

Thanks for looking.

Wow! The hype got really big for this species this week; ever since the scorpion gecko article was published in Reptiles Magazine. I don't have the issue yet since I was told it would appear in the July issue (and June was just released here) but I have been waiting for it for a few month now. There are 3 threads on kingsnake.com LOL

Now who is going to be the generous one that sends me a scan of the article? . :oops:

It is amazing how a little article can create a market for these guys. I've received no less than 50 emails from folks wanting to buy them. I gave them your address, Mike 8)

Wish I had a scanner to help you out. Lo siento mi amigo.

Haha, I wish I had enough luck so supply people with them. Last year I was telling Ray about this article and I said, "There's gonna be hype!" Lo and behold ... Connie told me the article wouldnt come until July so when I saw the ppl on KS.com discussing it I went mad trying to get a copy. We were still on the May issue here. And it's not in the June issue which came out this week. Please just tell me it's in the July issue :x

Thanks for the offer. If the article is coming in July, I can wait it out. I wouldnt mind a low quality scan of it since I am impatient but by the time I get money out to you and the mag gets to me, the issue will only be a week or so from arriving on the shelves.

Hi.
I saw Ray's male Pristurus when we were at the hotel in Hamm and it is easy to see why people are attracted to this species on appearance alone, forgetting how interesting they are beyond the appearance. I can't wait to work with this species.
Best of luck Mike,
