Breeder recommedations for FL

Postby CritterGirl » Wed Mar 01, 2017 7:21 am

Hello, everyone! I'm new here but this seemed like the most logical place to ask my question. I'm stepping back from rehabbing beardies and want to own my first BTS. I've been doing research but all I'm finding locally are shops that may carry older BTS's or dead links to breeders that use to be in FL.

I'm not against shipping a baby, as it seems most will be available sometime in June or July from out of state breeders if they are even breeding this year. I was also considering attending Repticon to see if anyone might have good babies or know someone who breeds.

Thank you for any advice.

Ray Gurgui is on the west coast of Florida. He has one of the best skink collections in the USA. He's old website Thunder Bay is still up but hasn't been updated in years. Best way to reach him to to call him at the number on that page. He has mostly high end skinks right now but will have tons of babies soon.

I had three girls to mate, but I think only one looks gravid. She should be due this month or the next, if at all.

I would most certainly be interested! Is there a way to contact you outside of the forum? I could PM you my number if you text. I would love to see pics of the possible mama. :)

Im looking for a northern myself... what is the best way to get ahold of Ron Couto, or what platform does he use to sell?

You can contact him via his website bluetonguelizards.com. I got an eastern from him last year and have two more coming in May. He has awesome stuff, definitely worth a look. Here's my eastern, now 10 months.

Ray is a good one I just purchased my first. Northern form him this weekend. His numbers is still active I called him today in fact and we spoke for two hours on every detail I would need to know for my new baby. He also said he has more due to deliver in the next month or so. I would highly recommend him eased all my newbie fears.

Ray is great. We picked up a pretty little northern girl from him at the last Reptile expo a couple of weeks ago. Whenever you have a question, he is always ready to answer it. We talked quite a bit during both days of the show. As previously mentioned, he should have oodles of babies in the next couple of months.

Not a great picture through the screen but we haven't gotten any glamor shots done yet as she is still settling in to her new home.

Do you still breed and have any availability?
