Hello,

i got a pair about 3 months ago.They dont breed by the time,but i think next year after a cool time in winter,they should breed.

They live in NE-Madagascar in high trees,sympatric with Phelsuma madagascariensis grandis,but B.boivini lives in higher ranges,too.

They have 30cm in length,a head like a Tokay,they are more massy than my biggest Mad grandis,and they can bite!!

They live in a box 150heightx100x100,a little bit cooler than mad grandis,under the spot they have 35C.Need no UV-light,they are nocturnal.

Greetings

Hi Matthias,

I never heard of this species, too.
It`s always nice to see pictures of your gecko collection.

Thanks for sharing and the information.

Hello

The species is not living or not widespread in the NE-Madagascar. The main Habitat is in the North-West area of the Island.
In keeping please make sure that the pairs are compatible. Otherwise the male or female often kills his partner. They are very interesting Geckos that look to his eggs like members of the Genus Gekko (e.g. Gekko gecko) do.

Here is a (not sharp;-() picture of a individual we found eating a roach at the entry of the Ankarana Reserve in NW-Madagascar.

Another photo we could made in the Montagne de Francais in North Madagascar. To make the photo we put him at the wall of our house.

I once had a beautiful H.Boivini... Hard as what to find around here in the US... I got extremely lucky, I went to some local petshop in my home town Cleveland,Ohio.. And brought her for like 25 bucks.. She last me a good 10 years and then past away.. I have been told that she had some kind of tumer, which broke my heart..

Does anyone here know where I can buy one in the US??? Is the shipping prices overseas crazy?? I would die for a pair so I can keep their bloodline going...


Cheers :oops:
