Are you talking about Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer?

People have a tendency to have like 10 different names to the same gecko.

I'm not sure of the scientific name. there is a guy selling them on another website and I have a mate that is looking at buying them, he just wants to make sure that they dont require permits. I have linked the add below. Maybe someone can ID them from the pics. Thanks a stack!

I'm not the one that is interested in them but I will relay the message. Does anyone here have any for sale? Do they require permits?

Depending on the province but in Gauteng you do.

Yeah like fruit said those do require permits in KZn those are C.angulifer angulifer.

That price is not bad for healthy CB animals geckos are quite under rated in price by most people.
