Very nice, Ori. Looks like I'll be getting more interested in this genus. Hope more get produced soon.

Stunning shots, thanks very much for posting.

How old are the vieillardi you have may I ask?

Thank you for your words. Vieillardi are approximately four months old.

Hi!
Great photos of two great species.
The differences between the species are clearly visible.
Thanks for posting.

Wow do the agricolae stay at the same colour all the time as adult too?

The vieillardi are sure impressive i've never seen them before do you have any whole body shots? :P

They change colour during day and night and such light colouration is present at daytime. But they can be also as dark as agricolae are.
Here is a pic of whole animal...not good one but dont have other yet.

not yet, I will make some photos in few days. Their tanks are simple: 30x40x50cm (w, d, h) - 3-5cm of peat/sand substrate, few wine or cork branches, ficus, LuckyReptile Compact UV sun (15W bulb), water dish. The same setup as for E.agricolae.
Those 5cm of substrate seems to be enough for egg deposition, as my agricolae laid eggs just 2-3 cm deep.

I assume you keep them the same pretty much, right Ori?

Take Care,

Yes, I keep them the same way as agricolae.

awesome pics love the scales, is there a size difference between the two species?

Thanks for posting pics of the vieillardi and the agricole to illustrate the differences in the species.
Would you know anyone who keeps symetricus as well, because I would love to see all three species together to get a real appreciation of the genus.
Does anyone know if Aaron Bauer has named the fourth specie he discovered, and are choua officially in Eurydactylodes?
Again thanks for the pics.

Im with Ken, lets see em!!!! I just saw some agricolae amd viellardi, but a side by side with symmetricus and all... And do I get the impression that chahoua is now being tenatively considered a Eury? Somebody please reply!

I'm curious what the main differences are between E. viellardi/agricolae/symmetricus are...I can see a few myself, but I am wondering if anyone has any papers on it. I did get some kind of article from someone in Europe a while back, but my old computer crashed and I lost ALL my data.

Thanks and hope to see your pictures soon, Jan...

Hi Ken,

I actually do have these articles and, ofcourse, "The herpetofauna of New Caledonia" (Bauer and Sadlier). Granted, the latter is from 2000 and many new discoveries etc have been made since that time. If you want, I can send you these articles and maybe I can make a scan of the key of Eurydactylodes.

I love your animals! Eurydactylodes is one of my favourite genera. Alas, I only have E. agricolae. Please keep posting pictures Ken and Ori ;).
