Rare! OK, I actually don't like my steak rare. I am excited about some new additions that are very uncommon in the hobby though. First up are some juvenile Aristelliger lar, the largest gecko species in the western hemisphere! They're also known to make a wide range of vocalizations, so they should prove to be very interesting captives (assuming they don't escape-they can be very quick when they want to and I've had to chase some down already). I have four juveniles from three different bloodlines, including 2 F1s, so as long as the sex ratio is favorable, I should have a genetically diverse breeding group.

I also recently picked up some Afroedura africana africana and Afroedura africana namaquensis. Almost nobody is working with these guys for some reason, but they're fascinating rupicolous geckos and supposedly very simple to keep and breed. Here's a shot of an adult female A. a. namaquensis and an unsexed juvenile. These were quickies right after I got them. I'll have to upload some better shots soon.

Not as rare, but since I just took these, here's a shot of my female Pachydactylus scherzi the day before she dropped a clutch.

The proud parents-I'll be interested to see what patterns the juveniles hatch with. I like the male's somewhat random bands.
