I'm sure there are a few people on these forums that either breed them, or know where you can find them.
You can always post a wanted ad in the classified section. (link at the top of the page)
Good luck in your search.
The "Cat Ba Leopard Gecko" was a common name assigned to this new species of what are commonly known as "chinese cave geckos" from a Genus rather than species/subspecies point of view. They are all members of the Genus Goniurosaurus.
This particular photo is of the newly defined species G. catbaensis and it lives on Cat ba Island in Vietnam.
I actually wish I could have one of those, but I settled on G. luii as a close fit, there are already some captive bred populations of those. The discovery of the Cat Ba species was one of those geeky science articles I run across from time to time. (I think they found fanged frogs, too, on that trip)
Capturing Cat Ba from its habitat would be disruptive, it's not the world's biggest island.
Establishing a captive population of those would be stealing them from their homes. Which is how humans domesticate any animal. But it's still not nice.
Hope that helped, this just belongs in the Cave geckos section.
