    Default Better photos of the new gal...


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Managed to get a couple of shots of Bruce's new bit on the side, as yet unnamed. She's almost two years old and has not been bred before. I've been trying to think of a really Aussie name for her to fit in with Bruce and Priscilla (as In Priscilla Queen of the desert, hehehe!), but the best I can come up with is Sheila and Kylie, both of which I really don't like! Any ideas?

    Does anyone know exactly what the classifications are for S.C.Aberrans? The breeder isn't sure if they are Aberrans or not as he says the classification for Aberrans is very sketchy. What do you all think?

    Hi Sarah,
    S. c. aberrans tend to be a bit bigger and bulkier than c. ciliaris, also as Stefan mentioned in this post http://www.geckosunlimited.com/forum...pic.php?t=1985 aberrans have the red color in th eyes. Also Jerry states on his site www.strophurus.com that the non-spinose scales on aberrans tail are tubercular rather than flat as with ciliaris.

    Hope this helps.
    Justin.

    Thanks Justin. She does seem pretty small for an adult. She is only 11cm. Is that an average size for an adult female or is she a bit on the small side?

    Caught Bruce trying it on with his ladies this afternoon, but they were having none of it. Priscilla threatened him by snapping her mouth and then when he kept advancing up her tail she turned round and tried to bite him. He lept off so quickly I'm surprised he hasn't given himself back strain.

    The new girl just turned around and 'gave him a hard stare' as Paddington Bear would say. She is quite a bit bulkier than him, so he decided not to push it with her.

    Do the females do that if they are not ready, or if they are already fertilised? I'm guessing there must have been a reason neither of them was in the mood?

    Any ideas?

    aberrans get around 13-14cm so that isn't too small, it may not be fully grown yet and some species are just a little smaller by nature.

    She might have had a headache lol Just kidding, I've noticed my fertilised females of other species often do that, but they can also do if they are just not ready really.

    Hehehe! It's a solar powered watch, figured as I'm in a country with so much sun I should take advantage of it!
