    Picked up 2 male Nephrurus levis pilbarensis yesterday, first nephs for me and my partner and we are both stoked, they are amazing in the flesh, pics dont do them justice, now just to track down a female :)

    Females are hard to find so i'll just aim for one for now, unless you wanna help a mate out lol.

    And by the way my partner wanted me to clarify these are her gecko's, not mine lol

    I would help you out for sure but I do not breed N.l.pilbarensis, only N.l.levis.

    Females won't be that hard, in my opinion, the gecko market and perhaps the entire lizard market seems to be rather slow and disappointing.

    I can sex them @ 6 weeks old if there hatch siblings

    I have plenty here if you want females , the only problem is you will need to separate the males and females as they get rather nasty to each other especially if the females are not ready to breed
