Talking Photos of the new Gargoyle Geckos!

Just got these handsome boys yesterday from a lady looking to re-home them. From what I gathered, they're about three years old and were originally rescued from a neglectful exotic pet retialer in 2009. Because of this, Tyrion has some calcium issues and what may be a touch of mouth rot from improper care over the last few years. Overall though, they're both stunning boys with chubby bellies and feisty personas! Love them to death already, and will be restoring them to their full health. (:

Here is a link to the short news article about the 09 pet rescue. It's crazy, over 20000 animals were saved in this thing, but sadly many others could not be. http://www.dallasnews.com/news/commu...eized-1379.ece

Tyrion- 40 grams







Renly-- 45 grams

I know right? I love the little 'horns' on their head.

I'd really like to see some updates on them, if you wouldn't mind posting pics and info now and then? Fascinating little animals.

Here are some photos of Renly. Tyrion won't be getting an outside photoshoot just yet, as he isn't quite as enthused about being handled.
