Hallo everybody,

Some pictures of my animals:

Ebenavia inunguis:


Matoatoa (formerly Phyllodactylus) breviceps:



M. breviceps is a very interesting and indeed funny species to look at. It has it orgins in Madagascar and it moves just like a salamander. Very delicate species.

Hope you like them![/img]

Very cool! I know that the Ebenavia inunguis have been the topic of a few conversations as of late.

Really like the M. breviceps too. For some reason I think of a sea creature when I see the whole length of him. Reminds me of nessie.

awesome species Anders! i love see the differences that you can find with the same family(?) of animals. the E.inunguis is stunning.

Hallo everyone,

I am actually not quite sure if I take them as being hardy or rather fragile. One thing is for sure, I will not keep them too hot. But the Ebenavia seem more hardy than Matoatoa. And you are right oscar, there is a big difference in physiological appereance within these two species.
Very funny animals I think.

I am glad you liked them. And Jan, just come along, these are not the same IRL.

Hello Anders

I see that Andreas made a good job by bringing them to Germany. I wish you many sucess. I kept E. inunguis for a long time and it's a really interesting species. I think you will have many fun with both species.

Best Regards Patrick
