aww, i love geckolepis. must be sad knowing that its literally impossible for them to retain all their scales for their lives though...theyre gonna do the scale flinging at least once or twice i guess.

well, best of luck with them,

btw, is it true that they are all from madagascar? thanks.

These geckos will retain their scales unless they are grabbed in some mannar. They are cool though.

Geckolepis can regrow its scales quite easily as long as there is not significant dammage. After the breeding process, both male and female end up taking chunks out of eachother. After its over they both heal up nicely.

how about the tail? does it fall off easily? does it regenerate with similar speed? does it too look the same?

Haven't lost a tail yet but the wild caughts I have seen seem to grow back a more plump carrot looking tail.

Yes they are amazing. They are truly one of my favorite geckos. Breeding them has been awesome. I can't tell you how happy I was when I hatched out my first baby.

When geckolepis eggs are fertile they are glued to the bottom of the cage.

They are very easy to take care of, although i've yet to breed this species.

Thank you for the compliments. I hope to produce lots of these little bugars this year and share all I have learned about them in the process. Geckolepis is a true gem among arboreal geckos and I am thankful to those who have given me the opportunity to work with them.
