These will be obvious Super Soft Scales from the original Harry x Soft Scale lineage and subsequent sub-lineages of that line that we've developed over the past 15 years. These geckos develop excellent structure into adulthood, tend to be more "shaggy" than your typical crested gecko, and they grow LARGE, with most of our 3 year old females end up in the 60-70 gram range.
Appearance wise, these will be 75 to 100% full pinstripes, some will have lateral striping and some will be like the two founders of the lineage with no lateral markings on the sides, and just some harlequin markings. Base will be dark to jet black, and head and dorsal will be orange or creamy (or a combination of the two like the one above with an orange head and a creamy dorsal).
Hand Picked by Anthony - No Individual Photos
This offer is only here because we don't have time to photograph every individual gecko we sell, and we produce a lot of very high-end, retail/keeper quality geckos. While we cannot offer individual photos at this price, please know that every gecko will be hand picked by me (Anthony), personally - and I do not like to disappoint our customers!
Special Requests Always Considered (But No Guarantees)
I don't always have all of the above on-hand, which is why we're categorizing them as one type for sales purposes. That said, feel free to tell me your preference in the order instructions - if I can meet your request, I will (just no guarantees).
Size & Age
These will be roughly 4 weeks old, which puts them at around 3" total length and roughly 2-3 grams. Shipping at this size is absolutely safe if both parties know what they're doing. We ship over 10,000 geckos a year at this size to our distributor clients and we haven't had a health claim from any of them in years (the last claim from a distributor was in 2012 when a shipment got delayed/lost for 3 days). The key with geckos this size is to keep them cool and keep them well hydrated. We recommend below 75 degrees, keep them out of the path of direct sunlight (windows without shades/blinds are dangerous), and about 65% humidity.
Geckos Ship With Full Tails - Guaranteed if Shipped within 30 Days
While we may use pics of geckos without tails as examples, the geckos offered here will ship with full tails, as long as they ship within 30 days of your order being placed. After 30 days, geckos may or may not have full tails when shipped. We often lose tails trying to fix stuck sheds (tail tips are the most common, unfortunately) or by geckos getting startled for one reason or another.
ATTENTION: The geckos pictured on this page are juveniles and adults shown for example purposes only, and are not the actual geckos you will receive.
