In order to reduce or eliminate inbreeding, all of the pairs have been set up based upon their genetic lineages , so I won't trade animals between the various pairs. The lineage trees go back four generations, but I run all pairs through an inbreeding calculator that goes back 8 generations.
Prices do not include shipping.
Sold out until mid-October. I will resume shipping in early November.
Available Uroplatus phantasticus
Key to the abbreviations and family tree can be found at the bottom of this page.
Shipping only available on Mondays and Tuesdays for morning deliveries the following day.
Key to the family tree:
The first two letters refer to the genus species (Uroplatus phantasticus)
The next two digits refer to the year the animal entered the collection
The third set of figures refers to the sequence the animal came into the collection. 1-99 indicates the gecko was hatched by us, 101+ indicates the gecko came from an outside source (W/C or C/B)
The last letter refers to the gender.
DOB refers to the date of hatching
Multi-generation breeding terminology:
Filial system vs. Captive Generation.
The filial system documents the sequence of generations from wild caught (WC) animals where as the Captive Generation (CG) system communicates captive bloodline generations. "CG" is relatively new terminology and not an officially recognized term, but is useful in documenting sustained breeding colonies and bloodline characteristics.
For example, an f-1 generation animal indicates the specimen is one generation from WC. When you cross two WC animals you get an f-1 offspring, and when you cross 2 f-1 animals you get an f-2 generation designation. However, if you cross that f-2 generation animal with a WC specimen you end up back at f-1.
With the CG system when you cross 2 WC animals you end up with a CG-1, just like the filial system, however if you cross that CG-1 back to a WC you end up with a CG-2 and so on. A CG-2 X CG-1 is represented as a CG-3 or 3 Captive generations from WC.
Both systems have their merit and if you are only using one system you loose valuable historical information.
