Hi!

They are from northern Africa and live in warm,arid and stony areas.

I think the maximum size on those guys is around 2" total length.

The total length is about 3,5 -3,9 inch. :)

I stand corrected. 2" or so is the biggest I've seen them. Is there a stenodactylus species that looks similar but only reaches the 2" range. Maybe I'm mistaken on the species.

Hi!

Maybe you were thinking of Tropiocolotes spec. ? They are around 2" big.

No, it definately wasn't Tropi's. Perhaps the ones I saw were just juvies, but they didn't grow at all over a period of 3-4 months.

the confusion with sizes may be a locality issue and the fact that what comes into the U.S. may be from a different collecting area.I personally have two different forms of S.sthenodactylus that are a little different in person but look similar in photo.The main differance is that one is 3 times the size of the other.I have bred both for many years and will post pics side by side later today.The smaller one is the most commonly seen in the U.S.and the larger is 4 inches.So you are both correct.
