View Full Version : New Ebenavia inunguis PICS!

05-12-2006, 05:19 PM
Cam home today with a male Ebenavia inunguis and I have to say that he is absolutely stunning! one of the nicest geckos in my collection... and he is also a lot more active / less shy than I had expected from him. He really reminds me of an Aeluroscalabotes felinus in some ways lol

Well here are a couple of pics of him, hope you enjoy:



The first image is of him in his travelling quarters lol, I keep him on a eco-earth bedding... he seems to like it.

i am now one of the most jealous people in the world. i LOVE this species, and had the pleasure of finding one specimen in the wild, but to have them in captivity...

great find, BEAUTIFUL specimen, congrats!

not trying to be noisy but what does a gecko like that go for over in your neck of the woods? that is a very unique looking gecko you got there, only the second photo I have seen of one.

I was thinking they would be around 200 USD! Wow I did not think they were that cheap! They are an awesome gecko! I have never seen any available! nice pics!

dont go by my rating, i have no idea about exchange rates! :lol: they are becoming more and more popular, but are still quite rare.

oh, and my guess was way off, its around $95.

We are late in the gecko world, bright colors i.e. day geckos are out in the 80s, the new trend is earth tones with soft lines and bold pattern. :lol: Super pictures & gecko :wink:

ahhh! another of the malagast beauties! remarkable specimen. definitely one of those species i expect to never find for sale, but im happy enough with being able to see pics of them here and there.

thanks for sharing.

I wil have to try and get a load more pics uplaoded every now and again hehehe... And I think you might be right phantasticus, amongst my absolutely favourite geckos in my collection are the ebenavia, cyrtodactylus brevipalmatus and uroplatus guentheri, and even my absolute fav, my eurydactylodes agricolae isnt what you'd call a really bright coloured animal... In terms of first time buyers or people just keeping a couple of geckos amongst other things etc, the bright days, leos and wonders etc seem to be mroe popular. I think a lot of people are just starting to give their time to some of the more bland coloured geckos finding they offer a lot more in terms of behaviour or shape etc. I mean hell I'm even considering buying a small colony of pachydactylus (or is it chondrodactylus) turneri again, because even though they arent much to look at they are a nice active lizard.

The ebenavia fed nicely today by the way if anyone's interested... very active hunter, dont often see geckos use their eyesight quite as well as this, condiering hsi szie I was quite impressed when he spotted a thirdy instar cricket amongst some twigs at the bottom of the second size exo-terra while he was sat at the top.... Very interesting hunter
