For those who don't know, over the last year Fantasea Crested Geckos turned into Fantasea Exotics. We had originally decided to expand and produce crested Geckos in addition to ball pythons. We have recently decided to sell off most of the crested gecko collection in hopes of solely pursuing ball pythons for at least a couple of years. I don't make too many personal posts, but I am a sophomore in college at the University of Oregon and I work as a CNA in my spare time. That doesn't leave me nearly the time I need for a large crested gecko collection. If there is anything you are interested in, feel free to inquire as most* Geckos will be for sale. There are a few who will stay permanently as pets but we will likely no longer be breeding. I've only got one clutch left in the incubator for this season and it's possible I will not have another viable clutch as most of our pairs were virgins before this season. We have also recently lost an amazing breeder and the loss is hitting fairly hard. All of your support has been amazing and growing this page has been wonderful. Definitely stick around to see our upcoming projects and in a couple of months, it is possible that we will have a few ball pythons available if everything goes as planned! #exotics#herps#exotics#python#carpetpython#ballpythonsofinstagram#snakes#snake#crestedgecko#crestedgeckos#gecko#forsale
Happy World Turtle Day. Turtles around the world both freshwater and marine are increasingly dealing with losing homes (habitat) from pollution and human development. Take a few minutes to learn about turtles today and the habitats in which they live. On another note meet Guiseppi. This turtle will be kept in a large tank until he is large enough to be introduced to the habitat pond. To give you an idea of Guiseppi's size, the shrimp beside him is only 1cm in length. Habitat backyards help preserve local biodiversity, they also help some species find a new safe home in which to live. Remember the more species we surround ourselves with, the healthier the environment. The healthier our environment, the healthier we will be. #
Found a baby painted turtle! He was bound and determined to escape my hands but we got a quick shot and set him free immediately after. Why am I always so tempted to keep these little guys as pets?? I can't resist their cuteness!

Another Ultra on eggers, all probable holdbacks here! Foundation clutch! Unless all 6 eggs are males, in that case some will be sold..LOL Hoping for 2.4 but we'll see...LOL Should be looking at a mix of sort of Pastel, Yellow Belly, Pastel YB and normals all 100% DH Ultramel Pied. Pastel YB Ultra Pieds down the road should be sweet!
