This guy has grown so much since we brought him back from Germany. We need more Easterns, Tom!

Very nice Nate! Did you get many?

Lovely little guy! How can you tell he is an Eastern? I haven't heard anyone use localities over here to describe thick tails, I think they are all mushed into one at the moment.

Very nice, Nathan.
How many forms are there from U. milli and what are the differences?
I hear different things on that...

Looks the same as what, Ken? They are morphologically different than the Southern form, with a distinctly different pattern. Here's the Southern form:

That's a mint animal, Nathan. I got my first milii group from Casey in '95 (for about $3500/pr!). I was instantly smitten by them. Great geckos to keep, full of spunk and personality!

No Problem Nathan, there will be more for you next year.
And to all, the parentīs are catch exactly 300km west from Sydney.
So they can be called eastern form, note the yellow band in the neck, itīs much thinner than the southern morph.
And they are not so easy to bred as the southern morph.
And I can tell you the eastern form give me about 6-8 juvenile at once female/year.
And the southern give me about 16-18 juvenile at once female/year.
So there is some differents between the formīs, I think the southern like it more cooler, but I have the same temp too everyone, and that resultīs in the southern produce more than they normally would do.

Ahhh I see I see, I just never really look at the milli I guess. I like them both the same personally. I can notice the yellow of course. I kinda like the southern form though...

Gorgeous specimens though Nate.
