Great to have you on the forums, Danny.

Hi Danny!

Nice to see you found your way here. It's a great forum!

BTW...the Swaini didn't lay, have checked and she isn't gravid. Nevermind! I guess she must have been checking out the lay box for future use. I LOVE them, hehehe!

Enjoy the forum, would love to see pics of your animals!

Hey Danny...seems like you have an amazing collection.

Any chance of posting some pics of D. Stenodactylus and their enclosures? I hope to get a few juvies in a few months and would like to learn as much as i can about them.

12-23-2005, 08:47 PM
I'll see if I can chase up some shots. Enclosure wise for them I use very basic small aquariums decorated with bark rolls. Do the American bloodlines show nocturnal dimorphism (i.e some pale and some dark). I see this with steno's and Steindachneri's and haven't been able to work out if it is dominance or mood related. There are very few available over here (in fact I think mine are the only ones).

im not sure about the color. I do know that Nathan has posted pics on here of juvies and one of them was light and was was dark.

And thanks for the pics :D

I haven't noticed any change in my Steindachneris. Will keep my eye on them though.

I notice that keep a few forms of H.Binoei. I just found another clutch from one of my females. I really don't know what form mine are as all three of them are totally different from one another.

Would love to see pics of your H. Binoei forms. Would you be able to tell what forms mine are? There are photos of them on previous post 'Heteronotia Bineoi'.

Hi Danny,

I just can say WOW to your collection - that`s incredible!
I think you need a lot of time to handle all of your reptiles, but I hope you got the time to write a lot here at the forums :!:

Hi Dan,
a warm wellcome to you here in the forum. It is impressing what geckos you keep and as I guess breed. It would be nice to share some of your experience in breeding of some of the species you keep which are not often kept out of Australia.
Best regards and merry christmas from the opposite side of the world

Thank you everybody for your welcoming comments. I'll try and get through this xmas mess first and then post some pics where I can. I've had a big weekend with eggs from Lialis burtonis, Delma plebiae, N.levis pilbarensis, O. marmorata and the undescribed bar tailed form of the Strophurus taenicauda. Is anybody on the forum regularly breeding N.asper.


12-28-2005, 01:29 AM
Hi Dan,

N. apser is one of the rarest gecko species in the hobby, I don`t think many forum members are keeping and breeding that gecko, maybe al most a handful. But there must be more gecko freaks in the back who are keeping and maybe breeding them, but these guys do that undercover .....

Have you tried to contact Kin from http://www.knobtails.com/ ?



12-28-2005, 08:10 AM
Hi Dan,
I forgot to add my welcome to the list. I'm sure you'll like it here amongst us other gecko enthusiasts.

I too look forward to seeing some photo's from your collection, and congratulations on the new offspring!
