A Giant Gecko Worth $19 Millions, a Surprising Business

Amazing, this word came out from my mouth after read the headline in my local newspaper. There was a teenager found a giant gecko on the border of Nunukan (Kalimantan Island and Malaysia). His name Arbin. With weight around 64 kilograms. Maybe this was usual news, but there is something make me surprised. This giant gecko worth $19 millions. Tribun kaltim newspaper was covering this news. After that many entrepreneur or business owner make a phone call Tribun Kaltim to get information about this gecko. But unfortunately this giant gecko was sold by someone from Indonesia. Arbin said that this gecko brought to China. Although this animal has sold but there are many people still want to buy this gecko with the higher price. They don't get much information from Arbin. Another thing which makes me surprised was there's a man who want to buy this gecko $2,7 millions per ounces. You can calculate how much money he will spend only for a gecko. His name Andi Makkuraga Hidayat. He is gecko entrepreneurs. Almost three years he ran this business. So far the largest gecko which he was bought around five kilograms. Please take a picture below, how big this gecko.

A Surprising Business

This was become great business for the people in my country . They have a new job as a gecko's hunter. But not all the people interested with this animal. People who have passion to get a lot of money and use the good chance. They use their leisure time to hunt the gecko. Most of them who live in the village which there are many trees. And they also hunt this animal in the forest. There are a lot of information which said that this animal worth thousands until hundred thousands dollar. During this time, the voice of gecko is often used to predict the weather. but recently the demand for these reptiles are higher than before. I get some information about the list of the price of gecko:

  • 2.5 ounce (7875 grams,) worth $550
  • 3 ounce - 3,6 ounce (85.05 grams - 102,06 grams) worth $5500
  • 3.7 ounce - 3.9 ounce (104,89 grams - 110.5 grams) worth $8300
  • above 4 ounce (113.4 grams) worth $11000 per ounce

Many people hunt geckos because it has become one of Indonesia's export goods. Each day about 3,000 geckos were exported. There is a farm which produce geckos. This farm located in Probolinggo, East Java.Beside as a farm, the owner of this place also as an exporter. To meets the demand from China, Japan and some countries in Southeast Asia. These geckos have dried in this farm. However, not all geckos can be exported. Gecko which weight above 3.5 ounces.

The owner of the farm is Didik. His father also has gecko breeding business. He always exported geckos in China, Taiwan, even Japan. He got $33000 every month, with 200 employees. He starts his business from 1990s. Right now he became gecko entrepreneur.

Gecko's Farm

Gecko's for healing AIDS/HIV

AIDS/HIV is deadly disease.Because theres is no medicine to cure AIDS/HIV. I found an information that gecko can be cure AIDS/HIV. If it's true, I think this is a wonders of medicine world. But unfortunately I can't get good reference about that. Many people said that gecko as an alternative solution for AIDS/HIV. But the geckos has meet the limited weight about 4 ounce. the oldest of gecko and the largest one has much more enzyme. I also heard that gecko have booked by Japan and Taiwan people as a medium of AIDS drug research.

Many people believe that gecko also as an alternative for itching and asthma medication. It has believed for a long time ago. I hope it really can be cure an AIDS/HIV. I wish the best for good purpose, especially for mankind...amen.

All the geckos I've seen were green. Since we see the lovable gecko that is a mascot for an insurance company all the time Americans may be upset to see so many dead ones.

I heard about the earthquake this morning. My thoughts are with the victims and I hope it isn't too bad.

Hi, Pras. Ayo berburu Tokek! LOL. This news indeed really amazing. Imagine, what Arbin will do with those much of money. I hope he will be wise with it.

By the way, I never thought Gecko can be that big,and it is heavier than me! It more look like Crocodile than Gecko, and the colour is unusual.

Well, I guess this news will cause the Gecko hunters start make a crowd in my Island, and I guess it is good because it make East Borneo become more interesting place to visit. \^o^/

Welcome back, Freya. Thanks for share your opinion about this topic. As I said before this animal make me shock. I never thought that this animal so big as a crocodile. I agree with you about that. This is a news for you. there is a seminar to talk about gecko breeding. This seminar talk about how to produce gecko above 4 ounces.

Like you said before, maybe there are many hunters in East Borneo after this news spread in all the country. It not limited in Borneo, but also in other island. With note they have to keep the environment.

Welcome back to my hub, Nell. I don't know exactly about the picture. But I think the biggest newspaper didn't want to put artificial photos. They have to keep good their reputation.

A small green gecko became the mascot and spokesperson for an insurance company because the insurance company is named Geico. Gecko! Geico! A very clever marketing strategy that helps people to remember the name of Geico.

I had no idea that geckos grew as big as the one in your first photo . Would hate to come across that one in a dark alley.

Thanks, prasetio, for an enlightening hub.

Interesting hub! Though you wouldn´t believe me if I told you I cried when I saw this. God gave us the beauty of this creature and man uses it to make money out of it? It is truly sad what man can do for money! Mankind could benefit from constructive things, not killing them...

However, this is a good article, brother so I rated it up!

Hi,my brother Mystique1957. Actually I was so sad to write this hub. But I want to show the fact about business which like a "boom" in my country. I know it hurt the God creation. But for some people they have do everything to survive. And because of this news, many people like doing a "race" to get gecko for export commodity. For the main purpose "Money".

But the farm in Probolinggo give a solution, they have gecko breeding. So the population in nature like at the forest still exist. But another wish for many people, this was can be a solution to save many lives because of AIDS/HIV.

Brother, I hope the best for us. Let's look this hub in positive side. Remember we eat meat from cow or chicken. And God give these animal for human life. Hope you understand.

Good to see you again, send my warm greeting to your wife. Thank you very much!

Warm regards,

Thanks Hello for coming to this hub. I didn't want to expose this animal like it have no worth. I know some of the species of gecko were beautiful and good for collection. But back to topic. I want to show the giant gecko and I think it really rare in this world. And we know another benefit of gecko for the medicine field.

But deep in my heart I don't want to exploitation this animal until it gone in this world. But using the breeding farm for gecko, that's the solution. If before this we have chicken farm and now we have gecko farm. Thank you very much.

Best, Prasetio :)

mrpopo profile image

mrpopo 6 years ago from Canada

Interesting stuff, prasetio. Very informative.

Although I don't like the thought of exploiting the geckos. Even a gecko farm doesn't sound too appealing to me. With everything that happens in slaughterhouses to farm animals, I wouldn't like the thought of having another animal being part of a similar process. We probably won't be eating geckos at McDonald's anytime soon, but your Hub illustrates some of the uses of geckos as objects, and not living beings.

I guess this was a bit of a rant, not at all aimed at you prasetio. I understand the efforts required to make money and if geckos help in that aspect, then it's good in a way. I just wish there were better alternatives.

actually, i doubt about it.

because some of the articles i googling about is mixed by english n indonesian. beside that, i have read an article which said alligator's blood had been proven to killing hiv.

i have thought that the scenario was planned to raise the price of gecko, but maybe i am wrong too..

can u give me some proof or articles about it, because i got gecko's offer.

anyway, thanks for the hub to give me the information

Thanks Stanley for coming to this hub. I am glad you liked this information. But most people I have met and I talk about gecko said that impossible to get a gecko with that weight. Although for 400 grams. But I heard about "breeding seminar" to produce high quality Gecko. Maybe in this forum there is a trading for the people who want sell and buy the gecko. I found it in my local newspaper. Three weeks ago. But unfortunately I lost this newspaper. Maybe you can googling again to find this seminar. I hope the best for you.

You said the pic was taken by Arbin himself then when ppl frm the news wanted to see the real thing he claimed it had been sold to another guy... then the whole thing is on one man's words. There was no real witnesses except for the ppl around him... With the technology nows a day... it hards to believe it... any professional news writer will digs for proof before reporting such a thing. Except of coz if the writer is responsible 4 a gossip column... I stand to be corrected!

Very cute hub, I love Gecko's. We do have similar ones here, they only come out at night, little white geckos with spots, they are pretty small, I capture the ones that get stuck in my house, and let them go free, they are soooo cute!!

I do not think they should kill them for medicine though, to stop Aids/HIV is educating people on how not to get it in the first place, one of the most prominent ways people get it is being abused by older men, and Africa and many places have "cures" so they can keep raping children after they contract it, but it's best to educate people on the truth of it, and not to mistreat the ones who get it.

Hi Mas Pras,

Thanks unt infonya. Beberapa tetangga saya sudah jual gecko, ada yg seharga 3juta dan up. Tadinya aku pikir kok orang gila beli gecko begitu mahal? ternyata rumournya memang bisa nyebuhin AIDS. Cuma ada info gak jenis gecko yg bagaimana yg laku untuk pengobatan ini? di gudang saya banyak gecko, bbrp karyawan mulai mencari2 gecko ini.

Apakah gecko dg kulit yg ada bintik merahnya atau bagaimana? kadang gecko ada yg hijau atau sedikit abu abu.

Good morning, Maria. I am glad you liked this information. Although some people see the giant gecko like something fake but the issue was true. You can check in the gecko's market. I don't really know about the criteria of geckos, but you can see above about the weight of geckos which accepted in the market. You can use English when you want to comment. Don't worry if you make mistake, it still acceptable. But I really appreciate you coming to this hub. Selamat pagi!

Such a cute creature.If it can be used to cure HIV/AIDS it can stop the misery of millions of children with the deadly disease.but more research must be done.If this is true effort must be made to breed this lovely creature so that people wont hunt them to extinction.Once scientist know the secret chemical in the gecko then similar chemical can be produced in large scale using the knowledge of genetic engineerig.This way the disease is treated while the killing can stop

Hello Prasetio30,

I must say your hubpage is very interesting and enlightening. And the informations about geckos being a possibility to cure aids/hiv and other serious ailments is certain a very encouraging news indeed. I am just curious though, where to find buyers for all those giant geckos? A family friends had several over-grown geckos living in their yards for so many years from just babies to adults now. They feed them with insects/grasshopers/flies etc.. but it is now not easy to maintain as they are always hungry all the time! So, maybe this is a good way to let go some of them..? If you know of anyone who is interested to purchase, please let me know...thank you. And keep up the good work

prasetio30 6 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Welcome to this hub, meozin. I am glad you love this information. Wow... that's a good news from you. Your friend has many Gecko's in his yard. It could become a lot of money in my country. Because difficult to find big gecko right now. Unfortunately your place too far. I can find many buyer here. But there's tight regulation about export and import. We can't deny about that. But thanks for share your story. I'll inform to you if I have a good news, like a buyer who want to buy your friend's gecko.

Would mind to inform them, one geckos weight lkg cost RM500Juta [Indonesian Rupiah, 2859.182245]

Please count by yourself .. one geckos only ...

not need to work so hard and kill many geckos ..

-------------------------------------------------------

[hunt geckos & Each day about 3,000 geckos were exported. Gecko which weight above 3.5 ounces. He got $33000 every month, with 200 employees. ]

---------------------------------------------------

He need to hunt and exported 3,000 geckos everyday and he just got $33,000 and need to pay 200 employees salary from this $33,000? Are you sure?

3000 geckos x 30 days = 90,000 geckos per month and only got $33,000 per month and need to pay salary and wages for 200 employees???

Why he has a lot of workers, because the boos want to help people to get a job around his neighborhood. So, the money he got not only for him. But I hope the Geckos population still exist in the nature. Thank you very much.

This article makes me sad - a gecko that looks exactly like this has lived in my garage for the last five years and he's a really cool character with his own personality. He has come to trust my wife and I and our cats have learned to leave him alone in peace. Pity humans are so insensitive to the suffering they cause in the world. It will be the end of us eventually, no doubt. By the way - that photo was doctored in Photoshop. It's not all about money is it? Peace

Thanks, shimla for share your thought about this topic and you want to share the gecko in your garage. I just want to share about the reality about Geckob business, but at the end of all the business is money. I hope you understand about this. Actually I don't want to expose this. But I hope we can discuss about what happen today with the geckos population because of this business. But geckos breeder still survive until know. It never end when it can produced for a long time. But I hope the population of geckos in nature still exist. Thank you very much.

This craze has also reached Malaysia by now.

Somebody is spreading this strange story to make some money! Are people selling expensive small gekko's (for breeding)? What's the trick?

Yes, Chinese will buy all sorts of wildlife for their traditional medicine. They won't spend millions on a Gekko though, specially if you can just breed them or catch them.

I'm sorry the world has become like this, but cheats with promise of big money can make people believe everything.

wow! 19 million in what currency? simply incredible. I wonder where this gecko used to hide. Surely not on the walls, maybe a ditch, heavy grass.

To me it is really sad that people hunt animals they do not eat, do not need for clothing or anything but just for decoration or put in a zoo. If they give it a large ecosystem it is best. Thanks

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Good morning, jcales. Thanks for coming to this hub and share your thought about this topic. I know it's going bad to see the population of Gecko's where this animal being hunted every day.

Thank you very much. ~prasetio

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Good night, Exy. I am glad to see you here. Thanks for share your opinion about this topic. I know it looks terrible for Gecko's population in nature. I agree with you, many people hunt this animal in the forest. As you know, Borneo is a big Island with the largest forest. I thought this place is good for Gecko's population. I hope they can keep the existence of Gecko's in nature. OF course, We want to hear the news about HIV/AIDS can be cured by Gecko's...amen.

Blessing,


DR.Gecko 5 years ago

Gecko is specially good for plantation program and cycle of wildlife. The roaring from Gecko can hear about 1km and more. The benefit from the voice of gecko is give right frequencies for thick forest for breathing. Wherever forest in this world have Gecko YES that forest is well grow and fast. God create Gecko is for that purpose. For HIV/AIDS laboratory result usually is take 6 month to prove it. Now is rumors to make price like sky rocket.

I always wonder about photos as things can easily be altered with Photoshop and other photo editing devices. As to the AIDs/HIV uses...hope it is true and like others said the cure can then be grown in laboratories and the killing of these beautiful creatures can cease.

We have all kinds of lizard type animals that live in this area and some of them look similar. Cute little guys!

biodiversity 5 years ago

Hi, i chanced upon this blog while researching about Philippine geckos. FYI to all Filipinos, it is ILLEGAL to trade wildlife (such as geckos), in accordance with RA 9147. I know that geckos are abundant there and big bucks can be made through trade. However you should keep in mind that excessive collection and trade coupled with habitat destruction may deciminate these beautiful creatures. It will in turn disturb the intricate balance of nature. There are no scientific studies proving the veracity of the claims of many that geckos have medicinal value.


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thanks, biodiversity for coming to this hub and remind us about the LAW in Philippines. I just a moderator here and I just inform about the business from this animal. Because there's no Law about Gecko's trading in my country. It's free to trade, but to export, they should have kind of certificate as exporter. But our responsibility to maintain the Gecko's population in nature.I hope you understand my position here as a writer. But I am glad you want to share your thought about this topic based on your knowledge. Take care!

Well i think killing geckos for aids will be a big mistakes... If it is true that that it can cure aids, more unfaithful and morality will be done. Sacrificing one life just because of unfaithful thing is bad... Geckos has their own role for the ecosystem flow and now that they are hunted down, well i can say goodluck to are nature.

Thanks, Seanmarlliena for coming to this hub and share your thought about this topic. Actually, I agree with you. I always respect with God creations in this world, even for plants and animals. Personally, I agree if research sample was taken from gecko's farm. Again, thanks to remind us about this. Have a nice weekend!

Thanks, danfresnourban. I am glad to see you here and your appreciation to this hub. Sorry, I don't have any information about the detail of giant gecko above. I believe this Gecko is very old. Why this animal so big? It's still become a mystery. I hope you understand. But I got the picture and the information from the biggest newspaper in my country. I believe the popularity in writing such of useful information. Take care!

prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Hi, ramon1064. I am not a buyer or Gecko's seller. I just a writer and moderator for this topic. I share to the world about the possibility of geckos business. Personally, It difficult to find a gecko's with weight about 400 grams and up in my country. I have the real buyer who want to buy 400 grams with length body about 50 cm. They are doctors and they want to use geckos enzyme for research. With many geckos owner here from Philippines,I can't do anything. I am not gecko's importer.

But I really appreciate for all readers and the visitors as gecko's owner and buyer who want to buy geckos. I really appreciate their coming to this hub. This hub is nothing without all of them.

Warm regards,

Prasetio

HI .prasetio ,,,, well could u tell the market of gecko now ....


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thanks, sheraz. Actually the Gecko's market still open widely. But the problem is there's no Geckos suitable with the market demand. I mean above 400 grams. I got information that the best Gecko's was the Gecko from Java Island. These geckos wasn't killed, just taken the enzyme.


gecko lover 143 5 years ago

Gecko issue in the Philippines, especially in Davao City, is almost as quiet as a silent night. Though i don't know exactly if the "gecko craze" is really over. In my point of view, the issue is dying the natural way. My friends are no longer that interested with regards to gecko. I just wonder if there are really people who will buy gecko with an incredible amount...!? I mean, if geckos are really worth millions because it can save lives!? ^_^


jaypee 5 years ago

hi everybody:-)this is a very interesting topic because b4 i dont believe it myself but there came the time when i encountered the deal for gecko... it is true! i myself is a gecko hunter and i have contacts from provinces like nueve ecija and davao, cotabato, libungan, upi, pigcawayan.. most of those places are in the rural areas.. im looking for a direct buyer who wants to deal with me personally. i have buyers but mostly are middle men and i dont like dealing with them.

to the author of this hub.. congrats.. those info that you posted above are true if u ask me.

and to Vera T Ching.. i would like to have a chat with you. to buyers out there who is still looking for geckos' just give me a call +639275209089 so we could talk.


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thanks to everyone who interested with this topic. As a moderator I just wrote this hub and share about amazing business of Geckos. This really happened in my country. There are many buyers but they difficult to find the real Geckos according to the desired weight for research. I heard that we difficult to import the Geckos from other country like Philippines due the regulations for animal "export-import". So, I can't do anything. I just approve for someone who want to buy a gecko and sell their Geckos. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND. But I am glad with many responses here. Thank you very much.

Warm regard,

prasetio


jaypee 5 years ago

yes you are correct about the philippine law on "export-import" very strict BUT buyers here have a special permit to allow them to do freely on doing bussiness in regrds to geckos.. thats proven! money talks most of the time especially when the amount mounts to millions of pesos.

prasetio can you refer me to a buyer that you know?


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Hi, jaypee. This was your second visit to this hub. I know that some people may have "permit", everything about money. Even the money can buy the law. But unfortunately, the buyers is from my country. It's so difficult for transaction with different country. They want the real geckos in front of him, it has been tested by the doctor also. Maybe you can "googling" to find the buyer or you can contact the buyer among the comments above. They use phone number or email. Thank you very much. ~prasetio


jaypee 5 years ago

i see.. though it maybe hard trusting someone.. but those buyers that you know dont have the plans to go here in the philippines where geckos are easy to get.. big geckos! and capturing of this animal are not that rampant yet. on the other hand if you know some who wants to do it just send me a message here.. theres my contact #. i want to transact directly is my main reason.. its the security of the bussiness itself.

so it is really true that their using it for diagnosing aids, ha? very very interesting.. its good thats theres already a cure on the process:-)


amarantot 5 years ago from Philippines

hello there!!

i'm from Philippines..I came across this hubpage because a friend of mine is doing a research if there's really a "trading of geckos" that exists in our country.He asked me to take a look at the news/article that you've posted. It's really amazing that gecko can grow as much as that!! here in our country,the said to be gecko traders are looking for 300grams and above.I don't even had an experience to see a gecko weighing 300 grams..lot of people here now are hunting geckos but can't find the desired weight of 300grams and above.Especially that hunting geckos is forbidden/illegal in our government.But many people wants to have easy money.It's a black market I suppose..good for your country that its legal.


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Dear, jaypee. I hope you will find the real buyer for your gecko. And about AIDS/HIV is true. Lately, I heard that the research has been conducted in Singapore. Thank you very much!


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thanks, amarantot for coming to this hub. I will explain to you about the fact that Gecko's hunter in my country was also difficult to find such of 300 grams geckos and up. Even for weight about 400 grams is like a mystical geckos. They live in unseen world. I agree with you about the money. I can't lie to you that geckos is very valuable and most of people love something "instant". The fact said that get a gecko with good quality quite difficult, right. Success for you.
