    Default Anyone keep these guys?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have been reading up on Banded geckos and I'm finding some mixed info so thinking you guys might be able to help. I'm hoping to find a breeding group(1.3) group of these guys but so far no one has them in stock. I will keep looking and maybe this winter I will get lucky.

    Also got a question. Some info I found says Arizona and California have these guys listed as restricted but other places say that isn't true. Anyone know for sure?

    I have 2.1 (not together, obviously) C. variegatus and 1.1 C. elegans. I've had good luck breeding the variegatus a few years ago (even had 12-15 to sell) but am not having such good luck this year. I just saw Ron Peteroy from Staten Island NY at a reptile show and he has C. variegatus (or C. bogerti) and C. bravis available. Look for his ads on faunaclassifieds.com or find him on Facebook. There's also a Coleonyx group on Facebook which is a good way to find out who has them.
    I may be wrong, but I think that the restricted part is that CA residents aren't supposed to keep them or breed them or sell the ones from their state, not sure of the details.

    Thanks for the info I forgot about Fauna I will check there and I will look for Ron also. I don't do facebook so those options don't help but thank you.

    I think it would be nice to breed these guys for sure, I haven't seen them in person but the photos I think they will be very fun to work with.

    I will have to keep looking into the laws and you are right most everything I see is talking about the South West area so here in Indiana I should be fine. I understand that states pass laws to "protect" some animals but some are stupid. I would love to keep and breed Eastern box turtles they are my favorite tortoise but laws are in place to "help" protect. But if we could breed and sell you could stop collection from the wild and maybe even release younger ones. I guess they don't look at the real issue just what makes them feel better right now. But enough about that getting back on topic.

    Thanks for that info, I will check out Reptile city. I have read too much bad stuff about backwater so I'm not conformable ordering from there.

    It does look like most of the online stores are sold out. Maybe in the fall of the year people will start moving some of their adults and more will hit the market.

    I've got a pair of baby San Diego bandeds (likely intergrades with desert bandeds) from last year still available. PM me if you are interested.



    They are a lot of fun to work with. I've actually have been giving babies away to co-workers with kids and I think my co-workers might like them more than their kids do.
