Shown with a quarter for size comparison. Will be putting the notatus together soon to see how it goes.
Also working with S. elegans and G. albogularis notatus.
S. argus is a lone specimen.

Ill work on some shots of the tanks this weekend, basically Im just housing them singly in critter keepers. The young ones are housed in deli cups to prevent escapes.

How are you heating and how often do you feed? Also what do you keep the humidity at?

Sorry for all the questions

Ambient air temps in my gecko are about 68-72, using 4 inch heat tape under one end of the enclosure, lighting with indirect light from fliurescent tubes. I keep the humidity at 50%+. Feeding on a set schedule, two days in a row, one day off.

They lay single eggs, about the size of a S. notatus egg. I have one incubating a 80 degrees F since the first of April. Nice pink color, so it looks like it is developing nicely. The juvenile I have has the same pattern and color as the two adults (1.1 I think), except that the ventral region of its tail is orange/brown.

I also keep S. notatus notatus and S. elegan elegans.

No pictures to share yet. Come June, there will be plenty to look at here www.geckoweb.org. But for now, I have to get back in the studio to photograph more geckos. Next up incidentally is S. argus argus. Just finished one each of S. notatus notatus and S. elegans elegans.

Im having some success with the sphaeros, I only have two species of which I have actual pairs so its slow going for now. Hey Yuri, hows it going?
