2 new AFT ladies for my male

2 new AFT ladies for my male

Postby Groenslang » Fri Jan 27, 2012 10:11 am

Thought I'd share some pics of my new AFTs from Hunter1 on the forum. (I see he is selling stuff, can definitely vouch for him, his animals are A-grade)

I got 2 females for my lone male, I was not planning on getting more animals, but they where going at such a good price I could not resist! :lol: They are het albinos, my male I also got form Hunter1, albeit not this season's, so I am hoping that he is also a het albino. Will have to wait and see what happens. But breeding is still a long way off! AFTs are epic geckos, don't know why, but I rate them much more than my leos.

I am currently keeping them together, but this is very temporary, will sort out another "tub" over the weekend.

The water and calcium bowls are coke caps, just to give an idea of how tiny these geckos are

Have a good weekend everybody

Those are nice! I much prefer them over Leopard Geckos.

Congrats on the new additions.

There are far too few of these around. The morphs are also nice. Hope you breed many in future.

Thanx for the comments. I am definitely planning on breeding many of them as well as trying to get my hands on some of the morphs, although I think it is going to be a very costly affair.

Some time back I found this Japanese website which had some pretty insane AFT morphs.

Check it out!

Thanx Westley! They look epic! Just wish they would come to our shores.

Does anyone know of any AFT morphs that are actually in S.A yet?

Here is a link to some more morphs

Just thought I would put up an update in the 2 girls. In a month from their last weigh in they have tripled and quadrupled their weight. They are fed exclusively on vitamin dusted lobster roaches, which they chow down on with gusto. At least 8 to 10 each a day! Anyway here are some pics.

She went up from 3 grams to 11 grams

This one shined, she went from 4 to 14grams in less than 14 days.

Anyway, that is all I wanted to show you guys!
