View Full Version : Holos still alive

08-05-2006, 04:32 PM
Well all six of mine are still alive and gaining weight. I still suspect I may be keeping them a bit too cool and moist though. I've just been placing them next to the Uromastyx gage without any additional heating.

They still eat a fair amount.

Completely unrelated to your post, but I just happened to notice...
If you choose not to be a gecko and you want to be part of the school system, my 7th grade teacher told me a princiPAL is always a PAL :wink:

Cute, who did you get them from?

08-07-2006, 03:25 AM
Same person you did.

I assume you mean Alex :D I also got a trio from Don at mfezi from kingsnake. If you need more stock in the future and Alex doesn't have any I highly recommend him. I'm trying to acquire some more lygodactylus kimhowelli from him here soon. He is definitely a good person to work with who when I last spoke to him had lost none of the holos he got from the exporter which from most accounts is pretty impressive.

The top one looks gravid to me, but I could never tell. Their underside had really thick white skin. :wink:

Yeah, I've wondered the same about one of mine, but can't see through. I feel the trouble will be knowing when the eggs are laid. I may just leave them to hatch in the tank, and incubate naturally, don't quite know yet.

I do have some gravid I think, but they've all bulked up a bit. They have really high metabolisms it seems.

Yeah, they're voracious. Mine may just be fat :D

you will know for sure when they are gravid. Huge eggs

I swear that looks like a gecko ghost. Why does it look like that?
Is it getting ready to shed? That is the trippyest gecko ive ever seen.

Yes it did shed soon after.
