New member and AFT lover

Postby ewertb » Tue Mar 05, 2013 6:11 pm

Hi everyone

Keeping tarantulas and in gereral having an innate attraction to things exotic, weird and wonderful it's no surprise that my attentions were caught by african fat tail geckos, the 'white out' morph specifically. And that's also unfortunately where the dream shattering and reality of the hobby also hit; in that we live in SA and these morphs are not available locally and to try and import anything alive into this country effectively tripples the price making them for me as a beginner and simple pet enthusiast unattainable...

Whatever the case may be I'm dead set on keeping a pair or trio of AFTs so, here I am, hoping to learn and possibly find these new additions to my family. Please give me a shout if you or someone you know have some pretty (and albinos don't count as pretty) juvinile or baby (I like to grow things up myself) AFTs up for sale.

Regards.

How can you say albinos aren't pretty?

Each to his own I suppose.

Contact Henry Kemp, he's from Witbank. He breeds really nice African Fat-tail and Leopard Gecko morphs. I've gotten one gecko from him, but I've seen the stuff he produces, and its crazy. The gecko I did get from him had one of the best appetites of any of gecko I've had. His bloodlines are also strong, so there's a good chance that your gecko will turn out better than you expected.

I was in contact with Henry as I considered importing myself a 'white out' pair. Needless to say that when it became apparent that by importing to SA a $500 gecko would turn into a R15000 investment I declared defeat and threw in the towl on that idea. Considering that I'm going into this a complete beginner that's at this stage merely looking for a pet and with no real desire to seriously breed I simply can't justify that amount for a gecko... And besides, he never actually answered my question as to where he intends to obtain the geckos and whether they would have just been randomly selected 'on my behalf' or if I'll at least be given some photos so I can pick which I wanted.

But yeah, he seems to be one of the more prevalent around with AFTs so I'll go have a look at what he's got.
