View Full Version : Paroedura ID?

01-31-2006, 10:33 PM
I ordered two female "Spiny tailed panther geckos", which last time I got 1.1 Pictus. These obviously aren't pictus! I'm thinking bastardi. Any other ideas?

do you mind me asking where you acquired these??

Got them from a friend who had them come in on an order. Not sure who they came from. Wish I knew what they were for sure! They're only 2" in length.

Yeah.. looks like P. bastardi as far as I can tell.

If you want those guys at a great price I have seen kcrd getting them in, fresh imports...but it is my understanding they are fairly hardy.

Anyone familiar with Paroedura karstophila? I'm not sure but I think there kinda similar, and I'd like to hear what other people think.

whats throwing me off is the tails they look like teratolepis fascuata tails. Not saying that thats what i think they are because they obviously arn't... but i think the tail most resembles paroedura androyensis. but if i didnt see the tail my guess would be a paroedura Homalorhina. Lol what a bad post huh... well i would say paroedura Homalorhina final answer lol. well honestly im not sure Whatever they are they are awesome!
Good luck.

there is a quick and easy way to tell if they are bastardi...pick them up. if they bite, they are bastardi. they have aquired the name from their devilish bite-lust. they will literally bite anything which is threatening them in any way.

If handled, they bite. Hard. When bothered, they run really fast-very hard to catch!

I still stand by P. bastardi.
