This is the first I've actually heard about them. Are they expensive?

herperboy:I don't think they are expensive. Price range is $125-225ea for unsexed.
JBReptiles:They are awsome geckos to work with, I will try and get some photos of holdbacks from last year as well as more of the breeding phase with this particular species such as laying, eggs, hatching, etc. I usually miss all the good stuff because they are pretty secretive.

Thanks for the comments. I will be taking photos of breeding and the whole cycle of different species within the genus Bavayia. I have taken photos of the first few eggs of the year, I need to put them on here. I will be taking as many photos as possible to expost people to this wonderful genus of gecko...

Well, as promised, here are more photos of the breeding process of Bavayia sp. including:eggs and hatchlings. I have yet to catch them in the act of copulation, but maybe one day.

Excellent Leland! they look a beautiful species, are they flighty like most of the other Bavayia?

Leland

Justin,
I have 5 species of Bavayia, and these are probably the least flighty, the geitaina are also not too flighty. This entire genus is amazing! The B.robusta are very flighty, as are B.cyclura. Thanks. Leland

Thanks for the info Leland, may I ask what size the adults get to?

Leland

Justin,
The adult B.sp. are around 3-3/4-4" total length, so they are rather small.

Here is another species of Bavayia, this is cyclura sp. These are a bit larger than B.sp. but more shy.
