Didn’t head to NARBC planning to bring home any new animals, but as fate would have it, I ended up with this handsome little Coleonyx variegatus variegatus, produced by @austinreptileconnection. Was great meeting up with so many people at the show! I was only there on Saturday, so if I didn’t catch you I apologize – there’s always next time! Going to be holding off on new animals for the time being in favor of some more expensive equipment and enclosures, but next on my agenda is absolutely getting females for this guy and for my C. brevis.
Current setup for the C. variegatus variegatus – Reptisand, cholla wood, a couple deer vertebrae, and a Vivarium Electronics hide. I’ve expressed this before, but Coleonyx are so easy to house that I’m almost surprised they aren’t marketed in the same way betta fish or hermit crabs are. They’re certainly much more suited to small enclosures than those species.
So yesterday I picked up these two #desertbandedgeckos . The upper one is a female, possibly gravid, and the other one is a male. Hoping to breed these guys eventually 😁 They're basically scaleless leopard geckos. #desertbandedgecko
