    Default Next gecko species


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I am potentially going to the MN reptile expo in April and am debating between african fat tails, steppe runners or African clawed gecko. I really like desert species and every once and a while holding the gecko and one that has some personality. I can get all the heating requirements, just doing base research right now. I have a leopard gecko in a 20long and will have a 26 gallon bowfront ready to go for this gecko.

    AFTs are not desert geckos, so if that's a condition, then they're out.

    Holodactylus africanus are not the type you should handle. They're tiny, and secretive, but fun to watch. I thoroughly enjoy watching them dig, rearrange their substrate, and do gecko things, but never consider handling them. They're so small, probably bordering on fragile. They're also communal, so they're happier in a small group. You can keep more than one male in the group, they don't fight if there are more females.

    ATFs aren’t desert? Oh I guess they are dry scrubland. What would be a decently priced <$70 desert/ dry grassland second gecko species that would work in a 26 bowfront?

    AFT's can be hard to find and are often more expensive than $70 (though I think a normal AFT should be less than that). Pictus geckos are amusing and come in a variety of morphs. If they require misting, it's on the order of the AFT's. They're small, so several should fit in a 26 gallon bow front. You may want to consider a group of females, since they are prolific breeders and from what I've heard, the females burn out fairly early.
