Weeiii! I've finally picked'em up from the dude who was selling them. :D

Can you pros confirm that they are s.petrii and that they are 1.1? The specie doesn't really matter but the gender is important. :?

I add alot of pics, so maybe it'll be easier to decide the gender.

This one is supposed to be the male i think:

Another question, how to incubate their eggs if any show up? Should they be incubated on a dry substrate but with moist air? :?:

If you can get some vent shots.We should be able to sex them.

incubate on dry sand, no moisture. these are hard shelled eggs not soft.
incubate at 28celcius for around 2 months.

If they lay one egg expect a further egg 2 weeks later.

p.s.- check the substrate well as ocasionaly they can lay 2 eggs...

How do you mean vent shots? :oops:

Maybe like this? They aren't really good, but it's better than nothing until i get get some better pics.

But aren't it a pretty noticable bump on the "male" on the first and second pic?

Males are generally smaller unless your specimens are not full grown, then this would not help. From my experience (and if they are full grown) you would have two females and no male. The hemipene bulge should be visible from an overhead shot like the first one unless the picture was taken at a strange angle.
Like Jeff said, pictures of their undersides could help us in helping you sex them for sure.

They are 1 and a half year old I've been told. Hmm, so they are 0.2 I guess? :|

It's strange though, if they both are females.. I think it's a sice-difference between them. And I to think that the female seems pregnant

they seem female but that doesnt mean there wasnt a chance she/they were mated before u got them. also its not unknown for geckos to lay infertile eggs without mating.

just get some basics for incubator should an egg crop up.

heres a link to help u. http://www.avimedia.co.uk/other/incubator.pdf

The guy who sold'em had just leopard geckos, and these are about 1 year old, so I dont think that they could've been mated before. And geckos can't produce infertile eggs unless they have been mated atleast once?

Yeah, I have one of those, almost exactly the same, incubating my leopard eggs. :)

But anyway, I will keep an eye on the "pregnant!" female, and bee looking for a male. :P
