OMG Gregg I had not seen that...And exactly what does he think will happen to those eggs when he ships them...does temp Fluctuation mean anything to anyone. But then because of whi it is I'm not really suprised he is kind of the puppy mill of geckos in My opinion. I have never been impressed with him.

Omg that is not a good idea. First off, how do they ship them and keep a constant temp, and how does the buyer know theyre fertile? I could understand selling a gravid girl, but not eggs.

What's he thinking? We keep our hatchlings til at least 2-3 months of age!!! It would be better to ship a 1-day-old hatchling than an egg (note the dripping sarcasm...)

The sad thing, is there's poss. some poor saps out there actually buying the eggs from him.

Yep... and we all know how brutal temp fluctuations can be on a developing hatchling... can you imagine the reactions of these poor people if they end up with a seriously malformed hatchling?

Thanks for the informative post Gregg.

I hate to make this a personal issue, but I met this guy last year at a show and I must say...judging by his personality, I'm not surprised he's shipping eggs.

He refers to his availability page as "blood money". Put two and two together, I wouldn't buy from this guy.

There was actually an ad in my local paper here about 2 or 3 months ago for Leopard gecko eggs. they also had some scarlet macaw eggs and some other geckos, cresties I think. When I saw it I had to read it twice. I couldn't believe that someone would actually sell the eggs. Then some inexperienced buyer comes along and buys these eggs and has no idea what they are doing. Its really sad what some people would do to make a few dollars.

I can see selling bird eggs....as long as they aren't subjected to extreme temperatures, they can very safely be shipped and successfully hatched. Many hatcheries sell them, and I have in fact purchased fertilized eggs at auctions. I can't believe anyone in their right mind would think this was possible with gecko eggs however....
