I bought a few Smithii from Hamm. 2 from Ingo, 2 from Green Eyed Gecko and one that was on a table (though't long and hard before going back and buying her!).

First up is "Big Bertha". Catching her was....fun.

Here's the Breeding pair. The male was in shed so no handling pics. Both of these have been basking, fed and even mated within an hour of being placed in the enclosure! Not shy AT ALL!

You made quite a catch. We're lucky to have people that are taking the time and effort to breed them. Thanks!

;-)Very nice indeed. I have a standing order coming back from Hamm for G smithii as well. I hope to have a few domestically bred offspring available this time next year.;-)

I think they are a great addition to any Tokay breeding project. Just a shame we can't get those eyes into some of our morphs haha.

There's a green eyed version? Mine all have blue eyes? haha I'm joking. Is it the blue eyes you have? Are they actually G. Smithii or something different?

All I have seen is a Nat Geo photo and the one attached here. I'm told the blue eyed will be given it's own sub-species at some point. Something that may happen to a lot of the 'diverse' Tokay as well.

While I think it's cool I think I prefer the green eyes. Imagine the blue/turquoise eyes on your super reds though!

I couldn't help myself! I tried to talk myself out of it but caved in the end. I didn't think she was in great shape but she should start putting weight on soon : )

I think you had some outside persuasion telling you to get her! (and if you hadnt got her, I would have) I must say she is lovely, cant wait for you to tame her too!
