Hi I got these 3 lil' geckos hooked up today, and I consider buying them. The guy says that they are petrii, but I'm not sure if they are. Cuz I know that stheno are often sold as petrii, and I want sthenos. :) So can you pros put there tell me what specie they are?
It would also be great if they are 1.2, as he told they are. But maybe you cant tell from this pic (the only one i got):

Great! Thanks for that. :) I know that it's hard to tell the gender from upside, but this is the only pic I got, and I've asked him for "proof" that they are 1.2, like if they have produced babies or something, but can you give it a try? :oops:

No sorry, I find it even hard to tell from the downside.

Good news! He has told me that he has seen mating, but nothing more. So it must be at least 1 male and 1 female right? I mean if they sometimes do "fake matings" or something.. :roll:

Beautiful geckos :D Of course I would say that I keep them lol

I think if there is a male its the one on the left...the bottom right one looks a bit chunky like my girl gets when she's gravid (as she now is for the 3rd time) so keep an eye on her...

and yup, S. stheno :lol:
