Enjoy the pictures of this very beautiful gecko from Bombay,India where it is not uncommon.Has a wide habitat preference,from primary forest to secondary degarded graa and scrub around human habitation.
Currently keeping a female,hope to find a male and breed them.I feed mine on termites,crickets and early instae meal worms,fed every day.
Warm Regards,
Naja.:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::yahoo::yahoo:

Greetings friend,keep this gecko in not too large an enclosure and feed young specimens on termites/pinhead crickets or appropriate sized food.Larger specimens accept mealworms gradually.Since this species hails from a grass and scrub habitat,high humidity will cause fungal infections.Spray water droplets to provide water and provide some drift wood for a hiding place.Warm regards,Javed Ahmed.

HI all,
|This species was considered to be an arboreal species by certain Indian scientists, but after a detailed survey in Mumbai , I along with conus and some other friends, we got to observe more than 22 individuals in their natural habitat. All the individuals were found largely active after dusk and only 3 individuals were found late in the night. Most of the individuals observed were females and most of them were gravid. As observed this species mostly feed on termites , crickets, grasshoppperss. Their major predators appears to be scorpions of the genus Heterometrus and spiders of tthe genus Chelobrachyus. Regular surveys are being conducted daily to gather more data on the biology of this beautiful gekkonid. Will keep updating our fidings.
Cheers
