how about these leos?

Well a good friend of mine offered me some good deals(i think) on his leos. Of course I wont be getting it for a few months probably 2 or 3 cause of my eye surgery. So that gives me time to think about the purchase and if its right. I have always wanted a leo though i know that so this is no impulse

He is 70 grams and 8''. $83 shipped (US)


He is 5 grams and 5 inches. $43 shipped (US) NOTE: he is in shed I will have pics w/o shed

$83 is REALLY expensive. They look really cute, but if you're thinking about getting a leo, and don't mind waiting, it would be a good idea to just get some at the next reptile show in your area. They would be a LOT less expensive, and no shipping charge.

I personally might spring for the $43 baby, though, if i didn't want to wait. Up to you.

It doesnt... If you have two super hypos and breed them together and one of the babies is normal, then you have a normal baby. You *might* have higher odds of getting nicer babies if you breed IT with a super hypo tang, but it pretty much means nothing.

$83 shipped for a 70 gram male isnt bad. Shipping generally runs between $20-30. I'd definitely go for it.
Is he going to cut you a better deal if you get both?

Well it depends. You can either go with recessive traits like blizzard, albino, leucistic, or you can go with traits like pastel, super/hypo, tangerine, carrot tail etc. Recessive traits tend to go for less because leos breed so fast, and it would definitely be worth getting two of the same trait (no hets) to breed, because hets are worht almost the same as normals. You might want to get into double hets like patternless albinos. The double hets are fairly cheap, get a pair and you can produce some patternless albinos which go for a lot.

If you end up going with snows, pastels, hypos etc, then you'll probably need to fork out a bit of money to get a pair of snows or super hypos or whatever, and some babies you end up with will probably be nice normals, but many will be super hypos which still go a lot because they keep getting improved.

Just go with what you like!
