i bought 5 little fellows today, they were marked as 'Stenodactulus petrii'.
I have some doubts though...
What do you think it is, petrii? Or another Stenodactylus, or even Crossobamon orientalis?
Another question regarding my new additions:
Does somebody has links to pics for distinguishing the sex of these animals?
Thanks for helping me out on this!

This is not S.petrii, it is S.sthenodactylus. Stenodactylus are a very mis-identified/represented group of geckos. S.petrii have very distinct dark stripes of the sides with a very thin, whip-like tail. S.sthenodactylus have plump tails that do get thicker with age, the females are chunky and acually very different looking than S.sthenodactylus, I keep both species and they are very nice geckos. I have attatched a photo of an adult female S.sthenodactylus.
