What do all these numbers and stuff mean?

The description of each specimen is followed by the sex of the specimen, it's date of birth, a stock number identifying the specimen, and the selling price. Photos are of the exact specimen listed, most are taken inside a standard 8oz deli cup for size comparison, and are updated as time permits.

Understanding our stock numbers may prove helpful in identifying unrelated specimens:

  • F021-01M indicates a 2006 hatching (we started this code in 2001 with 'A', 2002 is 'B' and so on).
  • F021-01M indicates the clutch number for that year, and thus all specimens listed as F021- are from the same clutch.
  • F021-01M indicates this is the first male from that clutch. F021-03F would the third female from that clutch.

CB - Captive Bred, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from parents kept in captivity.

CH - Captive Hatched, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from a gravid wild-caught female.

WC - Wild-Caught. While all of our stock is produced here, some of it is produced from wild-caught adults that we maintain. We will occasionally sell some of the breeder animals as surplus.

LTC - Long Term Captive, usually followed by year of capture. Applies only to WC animals, indicates they have been maintained for a long period in captivity and are very well established.

50%, 66%, 100% - Percentage of likelihood the specimen is heterozygous for the listed trait.
