The male, who I have named Gambit



Rogue, one of the females



Storm, another female



Jubilee, the smallest female



And the final female, Pie, who looks just like that - she is round, smooth & flat

I had geckos called, Gambit, Rogue, Mystique and Jubilee


Pie was introduced I believe in the Uncanny X Men series and appeared in a couple of kitchen scenes.


Although that may have just been a pie

Thanks guys!

Ron, I had trouble thinking of a fourth female X-Men name, & I didn't think Jean Grey, Mystique, Psylocke, Shadowcat, Calisto etc etc, suited the last female. I had the name Pie in my mind before the X-Men names, so I just thought she had to be called Pie.

Sarah & Mrs M, these were wild caught many years ago. All are fully grown mature Horsfields, apart from Jubilee, who has a little way to go yet. She is the only female who has not laid yet too.

Yes Matt, these are the beauties. I agree, older Horsfields have a great look to them. The shells on this lot are amazing.

Well, late this afternoon, I went out into the garden to find Storm digging a hole under the Gooseberry bush. The hole was already a good depth. I sat & watched her with much interest. Once she was happy with her hole, she began to lay her eggs. She then covered them up with such dexterity & tenderness. After she was happy with her work, I unearthed her 4 eggs & put them in my incubator.

Here are the pics of the event.
