Hey guys! Sorry it has been so long since my last blog post. In 2014 we proved out our first new genetic eye pigment gene from pure Fasciolatus. Now we have a good breeding pool and a couple outcrosses to work with this year and next. Pictured is a pure Gem Snow Fasciolatus with the new eye pigment gene. We are letting the pure Fasciolatus pair rest this year and will hopefully bring them back in 2018, they are quite old now and can't breed every year. I hope you're all having a great season and I hope to see you all in Las Vegas this November 9-10, 2017! Don't forget to subscribe to the Thor Gecko YouTube channel! Videos are uploaded most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings, with occasional Saturday specials!
2016 will be an awesome year for Afghan projects. I'm changing it up a bit and doing some crosses that haven't been attempted yet. It will be cool to see what it looks like in a few years, I should have this project finished in 2020.
This month we bought our first group of tree frogs. I've always loved this type so I figured it was a great way to get into them. I have a group of four with at least two females. Breeding is something I will be attempting with them when they are ready. Right now we have them in a quarantine enclosure to watch for diseases and sickness. So far they are doing great and will come to me for feeding, and even eat from my hand. This is definitely one species everyone should have.
