Hopefully these magnificent animals will grow to be great breeders in a year or two.

Beautiful geckos Jan! What form is the O. marmorata may I ask?

Thats kind of a mystery. I bought them from Francis - and i've seen pictures of one of the adults - but he don't know which form they are (they get quite yellow as adults - almost solid yellow).

Do any of you have some kind of "guide" to the forms?

Glad they are doing well, Jan. That is the Eastern form of O. marmorata.

I think it's the fatness in the tail westerns and northens have a beaver like shaped tail.

Thanks Nate, I wasn't sure if you could see the fatness in the tail when they are young.
