(Momma turtle was stolen out of large pen in May 2006
) The babies and male are outside in their pens, hibernating.
I let my goldens geckos breed last December. Lost three eggs because the mother stuck her eggs on inappropriate surfaces, one infertile, and three hatches.
I mostly let them breed because I really like golden geckos, and no one really breeds them or knows exactly how long they live. So when my older ones finally pass on in old age, I'll have a few of their kids.
No intentions to sell. I would only consider parting with any of my turtles or geckos if I knew they were going to very very good homes with experienced people, just like anyone who has had to rehome kittens and cats.
I also have three leopard geckos, no intention to breed them at all. The species it too abundant in petstores and too many meet sad ends. (Overpopulation problem...)
Searching in the pet pictures for hatchlings or baby boxies should bring up pictures I've posted before.
