Saterday I good finally pick up my three new adiotions: 0.0.3 A. felinus ( supposed to be 1.2) I really love them! And I want to thank Marcus again for making this possible! They are captive bred (by Marcus offcourse)

I didn't plan to make pictures this soon, but they really seem to do well! I fed them for the first time today, and saw one of them eat a cricket. The other to are also hunting already. The pictures where taken a big in a hurry, because I didn't want to disturb them. More pictures will follow in the future!

Picture I like the most. It shows there nature.

They are really quite bizzare geckos


Tail in use during the hunt

This feels soo good to watch!

Biggest of the two females(?)

Even do the picture is crap, I liked to show there bizzare toes. A much better picture can be found in "The eyelash geckos"

Glad to see that you got some! I know that you were looking for a while for someone that could get them overseas to you. Congrats on the new additions.

Glad you are happy.The male was actually a holdback from my 2nd breeding of Locality Specific Cameron Highlands Felinus.The other 2 are also F1 Cameron Highland c/b.The smaller ones which appear to be female(younger)will become more defined as they age,and will rival the male.They look very well already to be feeding and showing their trademark behaviour.I really am grateful to Nathan for making this possible,and really for this forum,because it a second home to me,and the members are all like a family here.Everybody has a likeminded spirit here,and the geckos are better for it.Anything you need Marlies,feel free to ask,I will always be here to help. :wink:

He really is very beautiful! They all are!
I'll post more pictures of them, including the male, in the next few days.

Ethan, you are right. I wanted these for a long time now. For serveral years actually. So to finnaly own them, is just one big joy!

Some extra pictures:

male A. felinus -> Marcus former hold-back. Very happy with him!

Close-up of the skinn. It almost looks like a worldmap!

Their typical tail

They are not only cold "catgecko's", they also sleep in the same mather! :P

Large scale on the nose

Obviously an eyelash gecko!

just fantastic pictures! I don't think their behavioural characteristics could have been better displayed. Congratulations on the new geckos too!

Great pics!

Marlies,those are some of the best pictures of Felinus I have seen.As Adam stated,truly captures their feline behaviour.

Thank you very much Marcus!

They are doing just great! They are all feeding on crickets ( I fed again last night) And I will try some B. craniifer next feeding round.

The little ones are actually fun to watch because of their cat-like attitudes.Its funny how they hunt like a large cat in a jungle,just waiting to pounce.I love these geckos,they are all I keep.I import alot of really nice geckos from Malaysia directly every month,but nothing can captivate my heart like these geckos do.I feel truly blessed to have found a passion outside of my daughters,which are the loves of my life, that is constructive and rewarding.
