You should check with Repkyle, I know that he's breeding them right now and has some eggs cooking. He's got one female that's a mini giant, and I bet you could talk him into posting some photo's.

I'm keeping a pair of them. They originally came from Nathan but I bought them from a friend. They're really nice to work with and are not very hard to keep.

Nope, they're from last year season (atm they're like 6 or 7 months old). The female is 10 (4 inch) long and the male a little smaller. Maybe I can expect some eggs this season, but that would be at the end of the season (I think..). I'm still looking for 1 or 2 extra females, but they're pretty hard to find here...

Nice shot indeed! What is the TL of the female? And of the male?

do you burmate them in order to breed them each year? How commonly do you find adult pairs available? I barely see any p. rangei available. Nice shots!

Thanks for the complements.....
Josse,
The female is 11.5 cm, and the male is 9 cm.
Peter,
Just like most geckos, they do need a cooliong period. I do not see to many rangei available. There are some people who have them. I just don't know very many.

You don't have to burmanate them - mine are getting ready to breed and they weren't cooled.

I don't think you'll find pairs available. Occasionally you'll find males and very rarely females, but not at the same time. Your much more likely to find juveniles available.

Best,

Chuck
