Just a couple shots of a 2004 CB girl I've raised up...her parents have been producing young in my care for 3 years.
These guys are like mini-Leachies. A varied, cryptic pattern, big claws and green eyes.

Hey guys,
Just talked with Leland about the species name...the geckos in these pics are Gehyra marginata. G. vorax is a little too rare to have the smaller price tag that these guys did.
musashi - I agree with you...these geckos are spastic! Except for the CB specimens. Just held my CB girl last night with no problems but the WC are psycho.
the moof - not sure on exact weights but these geckos are pretty stocky. they reach a good size (my male is about the same dimensions as a large tokay gecko) and have the pounds to go with it.

Mine are all around 70+ grams. I can hold my cb's, but my wc's are very wild, and extremely quite/agile for the very large size. I really like the size of these geckos, and wonder why the leachies are $400 and these are $70? Hmmm...I guess that's just the way the market works. Anyways, as Nathan stated these geckos in this thread are all Gehyra marginata. True Vorax are like gold and very rare. Nathan, what do you think about doing some sort of thread for the reproduction of these geckos??? I think it's a good way to expose the species.

We had an absolute monster of a male for a couple years, he was just over 100 grams if I remember right, and would do ANYTHING to get some babyfood.
