    Unfortunately not I don’t keep them anymore... I just realized I can’t give them the right keeping conditions. It’s to warm
    In the summer and to cold in the winter on my roof bottom..

    Nice ones too! :)
    Are they CB or WC/LTC?
    Do you breed them (especially lobatsiana)?

    Spekii yes from time to time but not regularly. Lobatsiana I need a female and the Kenya animals aren’t adult yet.
    Yes they’re all WC/LTC without the Kenya animals they’re FB
