I know this isn't a phelsuma,but it is a day gecko.My brother found this little gem at a lacal pet store and brought a couple home to try and make up for forgetting my birthday.She looks gravid,but I'm not to sure,any opinions?BOBBY

Those are pretty tight. Its definately a chunky gecko. Do you quarantine new arrivals Bobby?

Either gravid or chunky...I'm voting for gravid!

Be sure to hold her carefully and check her everywhere for bright reddish orange mites. If mites are found dip a q-tip in vegetable oil and then onto the mites to suffocate them. Sometimes it helps to brush off any mites with a dry q-tip.

She's definitely gravid.I've already collected two clutches and the third is on the way.Both animals are mite free,and seem to be doing great,very active species.BOBBY

I hope these egss will hatch,it's my first time working with this species so I'm hoping for the best.The eggs are pretty small so I can't wait to see what the hatchlings will look like.BOBBY

Good to hear the animals are mite free. Good luck with your eggs. Let us know how long they take to hatch. At what temps are you keeping the eggs?

well, it seems my thoughts are confirmed. These geckos are truely beautiful, and while i was in madagascar i had the pleasure of seeing some lygodactylus in the wild, and i found their eggs, which are TINY! about the same size as those, if not smaller. very beautiful.and the hatchlings are miniscule.

best of luck with them,

Good lookin' geckos. Looks like a gallon jar? They come in handy with these smaller aboreal geckos that's for sure.

geeeeze! the guy at the petstore i frequent has eggs incubating from a lygodactylus, though he doesnt know the species... i think i might buy them off him, just for fun...see if i can hatch em... the hatchling is so TINY! soooo sweet! :D :wink:

what conditions do you keep them in? do you know of anyone who can ship them internationally? :D :mrgreen:

I don't know of anyone who can ship them internationally,sorry.I'm keeping the babies on a sand soil mix,you don't want it to dry but you also don't want it too humid.I keep a small area of the deli cup moist and the rest is nice and dry,water is provided in a small shallow dish,like the top of a water bottle.I hope this helps.BOBBY
