Those are some cool geckos. Are they expensive or a common type?

I've always been a fan of these guys. Forever ago when I had my iguana(lived to 13!) I always wanted one.

Now I have a turtle (mexican wood turtle, not sure which type) that I had in high school... gave away... and rescued back 10 years later.

they are common, ranging from $20-30 sometimes less, the two females I picked up at a reptile expo for $15 each.

Yeah, they are very cool looking. I have been hoping to catch some at a local reptile expo, but all I can seem to find is lots of standards. I would love to find a patternless or color morphed female to go in with my big males harem. or even a possible breedable pair to go in their own setup.
I refuse to buy any reptiles site unseen anymore, I have had really poor expiriences with the reptiles health the few times I have done that.

My next herp addition will probably be Leach's Giant Gecko (Rhacodactylus leachianus), just because I want to have a growling gecko, I have one that barks now I need a growler.

LOL yeah they are a tough one to tame, it can be done though with extreme patience, and a little bravery. i have gotten my big male to eat out of my hand (and yess he has taken some flesh in the process) but he wont climb on me yet. I and working on getting him to think of me as another tank decoration, or rather "big tree that moves"

I am definatly serious about the leach's its just a matter of when, right now we are about maxed on space for animal residences in our house. possibly once I find a good placement for the iguana we rescued. My wife and I do a lot of animal rescues and try not to bring in "bought" pets since there are so many needing rescue. our animals in residence reads like a zoo. I'll detail a short list for the curious.

3 ferrets (all rescues)
3 tokays (mine)
3 ball pythons (all rescues)
3 chichilla (1 my wifes 2 rescues)
2 guinea pigs (both rescues)
1 hamster (rescue)
1 african bullfrog (my wifes)
1 green iquana (rescue)
16 cats (about half rescues, some are fosters through "Save our strays" http://www.saveourstraysinmaine.org/dnn/default.aspx (I dont know if I am allowed to post this link or not but they can take my birthday away for it if they like) some of our rescues have horrible stories like "gravel pit girty" who was found buried to her neck in a gravel pit alive and left for dead. If you look on the save our stays site at available for adoption Oscar, Guiness, Archie, and Bear< are all currently residing with my wife and I untill suitable homes are found for them.
3 dogs all pure bred Shar pei (ours)

the list of animals recued and placed over the last few years would boggle the mind. I know it really blows me away when I think about how many animals we have taken in revived and placed in great homes. at one point we were well over 50 animals living with us at one time. and we are just 2 people.
