Thank you everyone. Yes, Ken, the bottom one is wyberba, and once the weather warms, it is being sent to a friend, but I hope to have more next year.

Geckospot-

All the adults are in cooling now, but in a few weeks they will be up and going again. Would you please remind me again in a few weeks? And I would gladly get a few photos for you of their enclosures.

Thanks,

Jerry.

While we are waiting, can you describe your set-ups. Please include any information that will benefit noobs. It also might help me revise some of my set-ups.

Yeah, not a problem. I will get on that right after the first of the year. If I forget, remind me.

Happy holidays,

Jerry.

This is not an easy photo to take, you have to place them, and 3 different species, and the right moment to shot, before they run away. I think you have tried a lot of times.
Great work Jerry

Whoa. Is this a trick of the camera or something? Look at the eyes on the Phyllurus platurus. It's trippy, it almost looks like there are several irises!
Is this some weird reticulation or a trick of the camera?

Thanks again everyone. Tom, it wouldn't have been too bad getting the photo if the platurus wouldn't have kept freaking out. The wyberba are always really calm but the platurus can really get fired up! In fact, you can see it in its eyes. No trick photography; just a pi$$ed off gecko.

Best regards,

Jerry.

Jerry,
You are a gecko God!! Great picture. How did you get them to sit still for a picture?I can hardly get multiple shots of Nephrurus. These guys are ten times faster!!

Hi Scott-

Honestly, I think the hissing of the platurus had the other two so scared that they just hunkered down and "hid". I've found that the leaf-tails and Strophurus stay in place for photos easier than Nephrurus or Diplodactylus. I think the leaf-tails and Strophurus are used to being out in the open yet thinking their "camouflage" has them hid, so they are not so apt to "make a run for it" like some geckos do when spooked.

Thanks,

Jerry.
