Very nice D. galeatus Alberto. I am just getting into Diplodactylus and I must say I am hooked. I have a beautiful pair of D. galeatus that I am hoping to breed for the first time this year. Do you have any breeding advice that you could offer to help me have success with them. I would appreciate anyone's input. The more information I can gather the better.

I just wanted to say what a nice forum you have going here. I just stumbled across it yesterday. I'll have to post some pics out of my collection soon.

Hi Matt
this will be my first year breeding them as well. Nathan will probably be able to help better since he is breeding tesselatus (very similar basics I think) and he has bread galeatus already.

I don`t keep any Diplos, but when I see how beautiful they are ....

Oh my god, I must get another room for my reptiles :lol:

I've only kept D. galeatus, but yes, I've bred D. tessellatus. I set pairs up in 15-quart boxes in a rack system. There is a 1/2" layer of Jurassic Sand, catch basins on the warm and cool end, and a nestbox with a coconut fiber/sand mix. I mist the enclosure several times a week and cool the geckos down for six to eight weeks. They are actually quite hardy.

Hey Gene, just how many waiting lists are you on :lol: ? I know that I'm on too many to count. ADDICTION!!!

Tell me about it, Michael. We have two gecko rooms, and I'm ready to turn the office into another. I'm out of control!

Way too many! I can't help it :wink:

Actually I think 3-4. There's a few species I'm after that are not readily available and/or have only a few bloodlines available. But, everytime I get one there's usually 3-4 more species I've got my eyes on.

Have you been naughty or nice?

Always Nice, you know me :twisted:

I am getting some of these this year. They are the best Diplos. out there in my opinion. Very nice gecko Alberto.

I'm just experimenting with posting photos tonight and thought I'd post a pic of one of my D. galeatus.

Spectacular animals Matt. I really love this species. Will you be breeding them this year?

Thanks Leland. I'm hoping to breed them for the first time this year. They are awesome little geckos. I can't wait to produce my first babies.

To all those who have D.galeatus.... Put me on the list!!! These have to be some of the most gorgeous of all the geckos. Great Job Alberto and Matt. Keep me posted when the wee ones start to arrive...
