Sweet Justin. Looks like he needs some help getting some of the skin off his hand...I think...

God I love Amyae

Stunning Justin. I love this species.

Very nice pics. I really need to get into these guys. They're pretty cool. 8)

I can't recommend them enough, now all I need is an adult female! :D

No reason to be sorry Justin! Those are some nice shoots of a very cool gecko!

Awesome, and good to hear J...and yes you do need a female ;-)

I personally have once had trouble with one male shedding. But all is very well now!

My problem is that I'll need an adult female as well otherwise my male will be too old to breed by the time the young female is breedable :?

So freakin cool Justin!

He is absolutely gorgeous Justin! I hope you find him a lady friend before it's too late. How old is he and how many years can they breed? I can't WAIT to see one in real life. How do you keep your Amyae? Do you have a pic of his set-up? Do they need the same kind of set-up as Levis?

Hi Sarah,
Here's a photo of my amyae tank. It's a little different now as I added a another hide and some rock, I also removed the water bowl.

They don't need the deep sand like levis do and I don't spray as often as I do with my levis.

They are very easy to keep and they're a joy to watch. I can't wait to get more!

Let me know if you want any newer photos.

Sweet pics of a great animal and an awesome set-up.

Wow :shock: Some amazing shots there Justin!! :P

He's got such a lot of space to run around in! Great set-up. I am truly hoping that I manage to get a pair this season I am on two breeder's waiting lists for a pair each. Hoping that they both have a pair for me, but if not I'd be so so happy with just one pair!

I really hope you find a female. It would be so great to breed them.

That's it, im going to have to move to Australia (well in 5 years lol)!

Sarah have you heard of Edens Landing in Brisbane? thats where my cousins live :)

Hehehe! Yes, I am very lucky to have access to all these beautiful geckos cheaper than you guys pay, but the down side is that I can only keep Australian geckos. I can't keep ANY exotic species, so there's a down side and an up side.

Mind you, they are exactly cheap over here, just cheaper! It's $500 for a hatchling pair of Amyae, that's still a fair bit of money considering they are native geckos!

Yes, I have heard of Edens Landing. It's on the way to the Gold Coast I think, but I haven't been there. I live in Moggill, which is in the Western Suburbs of Brisbane. Probably about an hours drive away from your cousins.

If you ever plan on visiting your cousins you're welcome to drop by :0)
