I just picked up this big girl a couple of weeks ago, she is currently about 6.5 inches STV and 11 inches TL. I am confused about ID, and there is very little info available. Any help would be appreciated, sorry aboout the fuzzy pics shes a little crazy.

Cheers

i have a bunch of those, i love them. and if yours is a little crazy, your lucky.
care is really simple, its just like cresteds only hotter. 80- 90 is their happy temp.

they eat bugs and frugiviourous diet such as clarks or t-rex crested gecko diet.
the correct species is gehrya marginata but everyone calls the vorax.

thanks

Do these geckos eat more fruit or bugs? Ive been feeding her Baby Food or Crested Gecko Diet every night and Crickets, silkworms or butterworms 3 times a week. Is this good or should i be feeding her more bugs and less fruit?

i would guess its really up to them, but a balanced diet is always a good thing.
i only feed mine crested gecko diet twice a week though. knock out the baby food, cause its babyfood. i have a line on some true vorax people can pm me if interested.

thanks for the info, im phasing out baby food and replacing it with real fresh fruit. Its just shes been eating baby food since she was imported almost a year ago and shes really picky about the fruit she eats. Do you have any suggestions to ease the transition, i got her to eat kiwi but she wont touch peaches but she ate peach baby food so i know she likes it.

"...is gehrya marginata but everyone calls the vorax."

As far as I know the "vorax" have an other eye-color........????? :lol:

I aint got no pictures, but I got different animals from K.F. Henkel, only the blue-eyed are called vorax.

There are a lot of hybrids around, so it is possible, that there are some mistakes in giving the right name.........
