Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES PURCHASING WORK?
Since we sell live animals, we use a very personal approach to sales. In order to purchase one of our geckos, you should email us, or message us on Facebook or Instagram quoting the gecko you are interested in unique ID code (e.g. LGL-1-1)
Your gecko is only secured when you have paid us a 25% deposit.
While you wait to receive your gecko, feel free to ask questions about your gecko and their setup. Part of the package when purchasing from an ethical breeder is having somebody to answer all of your questions!
If you have a particular breeding project in mind and are struggling to choose between a few geckos we are happy to help you decide which animal best suits your needs.
CAN YOU SHIP?
Generally, we do not allow pickups for security reasons. We are currently able to courier to England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Houten. We are constantly expanding the list of locations we can ship to, so watch this space!
WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU SUPPLY WITH THE GECKOS?
Every gecko that leaves us comes with a custom Vivarium Label with a portrait of them on it, and a Certificate of Pedigree / Adoption (the latter for Pet Only animals) with information on their parents, their genetic info, hatch date, and more!
We also offer lifetime support regarding husbandry and general enquiries.
For breeders, all of our test breeding information is publicly available, and you can request a test breeding document with all of the information we have on your gecko's lines.
HOW MUCH DO LEOPARD GECKOS COST?
Our geckos can be worth anything from £50 - £1500. Price is determined by the morph, lineage, and quality of the individual. No two geckos are the same, so we can't price them like they are!
ARE THERE ANY GENETIC HEALTH ISSUES PRESENT IN YOUR MORPHS?
We avoid genes and lines which are known for having health issues. The main ones in leopard geckos are Engima and Lemon Frost. We do not produce either of these morphs. Some lines of White & Yellow (WY) are prone to a condition known as White & Yellow Syndrome (WYS). As of 2023, we do not work with WY regardless.
Albinos (Bell, Tremper, Rainwater) can be light-sensitive and sometimes need lower output UVB, but this isn't thought to affect quality of life.
WHAT IS A PET ONLY LEOPARD GECKO?
Sometimes on our Morph Market page you will see geckos listed for £55 - £60 as 'Pet Only'. This means that they are sold for a cheaper price but that they cannot be bred from and that genetic information is not disclosed.
The most common reason we will Pet Only an animal is because they are a retired breeder. We don't like to hold onto geckos for more than a few years as we use rack systems which cannot safely have UVB or overhead heating, so when we no longer need an adult for our projects more often than not we will retire them as pet only. There is nothing physically wrong with these animals and we will usually give a more detailed description of their personality as we have gotten to know them during our time with them.
The second, less fortunate reason, is that the animal has some sort of imperfection. This is usually down to congenital defects. We hold onto these geckos until they are a lot older than our healthy animals and if needed seek veterinary advice regarding their health and quality of life. These animals are often absolutely fine, but require more experienced homes.
We are quite picky about where our pet-only animals go, and require that prospective homes follow our care guide and provide a large vivarium with overhead heating and UVB.
