I've put my LW in a new smaller viv. and he immediately started chasing the fruit flies.
Still waiting for my female though, can't wait to put them together.

The new viv (still need to fabricate a fixture for my lamp to lay on top of the viv.)

For such a small animal they drink a lot.

In the previous viv couple of days ago- as you can see he has turned more blue since then.

haha ow gorgeous. nice colouring. smaller animals are more prone to dehydration than larger ones because of thier large surface area compared to thier total body volume meaning they lose water alot more easily

Same goes for warmth.

Nice male uou have there.

It would "fith" perfect with my female :biggrin:

Idon't know if it is only i that think Lygodactylus works better in smal cages. I have a group of 6 L.lutepicturatus that i house in a terrarium that is 40cm high x 20cm deep x 20cm long. It is 2 males and 2 females. I have seen both males mate with diffrent females.

I have my L.williamsi in a cage with the same measure.

I read in another thread that it was recomended to use quit big cage for Lygodactylus.

Any thougts on this ?

Hi,
I keep my 1.2 Lygodactylus Williamsi since last Dezember in a 50*50*100 cm and it works fine. Until now I have got 14 Lygodactylus Williamsi babies.
They are now between two weeks and 5month old.

Do you incubate the eggs in the large vivarium or do you use an incubator?

I was wondering the same thing as SarkkaS.

SarkkaS how big terrariums do u use ?

I havent seen any aggression from my geckos so far. Have had them for about 4 months know and they are all adults know.

I will try to post pics of the terrarium.

My main L. mombasicus vivarium is LWH 80x40x120 cm and only contains an adult trio right now, but I hope to add a female or two at a later stage to see how the females handle the increased population and possible competition.

The vivarium for the youngins' is LWH 76 x 30 x 40 cm, which is divided into two sections (76 cm of length into about 35 and 41 cm). Currently I have four hatchlings (2.5-3.5 months) on one side and seven hatchlings (0-1.5 months) on the other side. New small raising vivariums have already been designed and building them will take a few weeks of time. Let's hope I find the time to build.. ;)

The new raising vivariums will be about 20 cm wide, with around 30-40 cm depth and height. Only the width is set, since I want to fit 4 of them on a single shelf of 80 cm. Height and depth will be finalized in the coming weeks. Each viv will house 1-2 juvenile geckos.

Two of the Lygodactylus Williamsi hatched in the incubator after 54days 27.6C, the others in the vivarium.

Hey congrats with the hatchlings!

I've an 80x45x50 cm on stand by but i don't have a nice place to put it at the moment but once they produced their first offspring in their current viv. they probably will be moved to the larger viv.
