Hello uroplatusguy,
easy to keep, eat like monsters; seems to be easy to breed, also. I have one pair, female is gravid for the first time. females need lots of calcium, because in the breeding season they lay many clutches. I keep them relatively dry, with many shelters under pieces of bark. One of the nicest Paroedura! They seem to be quite rare in the US? Saw a classified add at kingsnake.com, 1000 Dollars for a pair. Paid a tenth of that price (i live in Germany). Especially as juveniles, they are quite colourful. But also very nice when adult. One of my favorite geckos.
Regards

they aren't! some weeks ago i heard about a small number of animals that were offered in a petshop. But normally, you will not find them in commercial pet shops. I got my animals from a guy who got the parents of my specimens from the people who described this species in 2001.
