Great stuff, Jerry! The Heteronotia Clone Geckoes are brilliant! I've been working with them for a few years now and they're certainly among my favourite animals! Are they popular over there?Automated signature.

Thanks everyone. Yeah, I guess "breed" is not really the right word. But to answer Derek's question, they do seem fairly easy to reproduce. I've kept a group of three of them together since they were babies and raised them up to adults. A while back they all started producing eggs. My experience is still limited with them, but so far they don't seem too hard to keep and "clone". There are not too many of them around yet that I know of, but I think they will be popular as they become available.Specializing in uniquely rare geckos that are sure to be popular for years to come!

Nice to see they have ´cloned´ themself also in the U.S.
Have fun with them.

Can the parthenogenic individuals become sexual (and vice versa)? Just wondering if environmental conditions (population density, food scarcity etc.) can prompt a "reversion".

I think this makes them particularly cool; the fact that they can't 'sneak any sex in' means that they're clones of the original animals which existed before modern humans, over 100,000 years ago!Automated signature.
