This little gem hatched out a few weeks ago. These are definitely my favorite type of Knobtail.

Those guys are awesome-thanks for sharing.

So amazing! I love them!

Congrats. That's a beauty.

Well done Matt, Would you say their behaviour, housing needs etc are very similar to N. amyae?

I keep them very much like my N. amyae. Their habits are a bit different though. I love watching them kick sand on their backs. They are very special geckos.

Thanks Matt. Have you found them hard to breed?

This is my first year producing them, so it's to soon to say. Things seem to be going well so far.

Are they similar in size to N. l. levis?

I'd say they are somewhere between N. levis and N. amyae in size. Very unique.

07-16-2005, 11:56 AM
I agree, very unique. Thanks for answering all the questions Matt. Nice to hear from you and I'm glad you're season is going well.

Couple more years...

Very cool geckos indeed-perhaps my fatties will allow me to get a baby wheeleri or two next year...

What do babies even go for? I have never heard of babies for sale.

You could probably find babies for a couple grand or so.

You have to get permission from your other geckos? LOL! I couldn't resist, Aaron.

07-27-2005, 03:05 AM
Yea, they're kinda partial to new species.

I just need lots of babies from the fattails to be able to afford some more expensive stuff-I sent you PM about the het females you'll have at Daytona. Would be nice to have a couple more females going this next season.

Heh! That was kinda funny...

So for a couple grand, jeez...so like for one pair of Amyae, you can get 1 baby Wheeleri, or you can get like 3 baby Amyae...hmmm, hard choice.

...really is :x

I am going to bring a few to Daytona this year. They will probably go around $1500-$1700 for unsexables. I may bring a pair or two also.

Oh man your really temping me!!! I actually might think about it, seems like babies should only be like 1200, I figure double price...but then you don't see babies much for sale. I want at least 2 unsexed juvi Amyae from you though.

I might be interested in 4 wheeleri babies...email me!

Good luck with buying a house. I know how that is. About the price. Wheeleri are going for around $5000 a pair. Grow two juveniles up and you will probably get a pair for $3000. Not too bad. Talk with you soon.

Sounds good...

I would just hate to get 2 males...then again, love to get two females ;-)

how about you bring a bunch of your baby amyaes at Daytona to trade for wheeleri, this way it will not cost you anything, ha ha.

Heh, but I love them to much and don't want to, I just found 5 more babies I am buying! So that will work out nice, and Scott is bringing a couple to Daytona. Hopefully some sceamers :?

How did that shipment go Alberto?

Are they sex determined at all by temps? I really have looked alot for information, but nothing.

And oh boy, I can't wait for Daytona... :shock: :o
