    Default i just saved a Garg off Craigslist.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So i decided to look at CL last night. Bad idea, i know..I see a Garg is offered for sale, plus enclosure. For $125. I ask if it is male or female. They tell me male, and i ask for better photos, which they provide.

    I could not tell from the pics, and i thought the enclosure was 12x12x18. But when I went to pick up the gecko today, it was a teeny 8x8x12. He is over a year but large. He has had insects in his diet, so i am sure that helped. but 3-4 inches SVL is way too big for that teeny enclosure. i was so angry that he has had to live in there. i have him in my largest kritter keeper, which is still more than 2 times the size of his old home. PLUS, he is from the breeder i got my female from and he is a beautiful garg. I am happy i decided to go for it. I will go to Lowes and pet stores tomorrow to get him what he needs. Marble1.jpg

    He is gorgeous!!!
    I'd have a hard time not snagging him either. I'm sure he's awful thankful that you came to help him.
    He does look a bit puffy in the undercarriage area but females are as well. So he could also be a she.
    To be sure, I'd need a weight and a very clear shot of the vent area to look for pores. Females have pseudo pores that make it difficult to sex gargs. I once rescued an adult female that was mistaken for a male because of her pores and puffiness...
    Keep us updated on how he's doing and settles in. He (or she) is a stunner.

    So i just got my old loupe out to check his/her gender. Has a definite lump, but i needed to look for pores. HE has pores. So i have a male. He didn't enjoy me flipping him over and fake-nipped me. But he is ok now.

    Females can have pseudo pores as well. They are notoriously tricky.
    Here are some images that can help.

    Also if you want to provide a clear well lit photo of the area as well as the weight, I can help as well.
