    i just go an eastern stone gecko,(diplodacttylus vittatus)
    ive never really had geckos accept from some southern leaf tails ive had as a kid
    and the millions of house geckos i have around here...

    but i had a friend who had this esg and i promised him the last coastal juvi i had
    this year so when i just gave it to him he gave me this little fella to keep things
    square so to say...

    not sure wether to keep it(the kids love it) or move it on i was wondering if they can
    be sexed the same way you would use a visual check as if it was a dragon or you
    have to probe them...

    It's actually a Robust Velvet Gecko, Oedura robusta. It's male.

    the pic of the eastern stone gecko looks like it eccept for the pattern on the tail..

    and it only had marbled and zig zag as the only 2 velvets..

    but it was just one of my older books

    SNAKES

    Well Stone Geckos are Diplodactylus anyway, not Oedura.

    Either way, it's a nice, hardy gecko to start your gecko collection with.
