Yes, that INCREDIBLY lucky person is me (Marcia...I can never thank you enough).Oh, he sold! Someone got lucky.
I've never had a gecko with any sort of deformity (unless you call being a general BUTTHEAD a deformity :main_rolleyes until "Piglet" graced me with his presence a couple days ago. This gecko has a heart of gold, and is the most gentle little guy I've ever seen. He just wants love, I know that sounds so silly, but it would only take you holding him for 30 seconds and you would agree with me. He really is more like a little puppy dog than a gecko! There is NOTHING better than walking in the room, opening his tub, and seeing his adorable little face peeking right up at me, nostril deformities and all.
I cannot imagine culling him due to him having nostril deformities. I am a firm believer in nature running it's course. Survival of the fittest if you will.
However, if there is no shadow of a doubt in your mind that a gecko you just brought into this world (due to the choice you made to put it's parents together) is going to suffer, not thrive, or be in pain...then by all means I agree with HUMANELY ending it.
The hard part is drawing that line...a line that can be very blurry at times, when shrouded by the love we feel for these animals. One of the hardest things in the world is making that unselfish decision.
