Ok so looks like a ton of us have gotten these recently so I figured i'd just start a general appreciation thread...post your thoughts, interesting behavoirs, breeding successes, pics....etc..etc...

As this is one of the few animals im keeping currently, they are getting alot of attention. Very cool to just sit and watch though anyways compared to some other stuff i've owned.

I took a few crappy pics today, and i pulled 6 eggs, of the 8 i know they laid to put in other grow out vivs. I think only 3-4 or the eggs are good at most though. These are just the ones i've found. i havent seen any babies yet, but i did find a broken egg that looked like it hatched, so maybe i have some running around i just havent found yet. And one egg they laid seems to have either hatched or been buried by them as i cant really see it any more...so not sure whats going on there. Its in a back corner and to hard to get to, so not going to try diggin for it.

I've switched mine to yogurt instead of baby food, and i've been periodically adding a mix of the 2 types of reptile extra powdered anti parasite and bacterial foods to the mix occasionally. Not so much anymore as mine are pretty well established, but i think it helps with wild caughts. Also i've noticed with enough of the anti bacterial powdered food mixed in the baby food or yogurt mix seems to last longer. I've also been mixing in extra calcium powder/and some vitamins, and day gecko diet powder into the b-food/yogurt. Seems to be working well, as all my guys are fat arses ;) (but not to fat)

Mine seem to be laying pairs of eggs also, is this normal? anyone else finding pairs or more, or just singles?

Also i got all 4 of mine to take meal worms from my hand today! first time i've tried it and they all went for it ;)
Couldnt get a pic really showing the colors of my brightest male, i'll work on that, and see if i can catch an action shot of hand feeding ;)

Good Luck with all those eggs Dave! Wow! I just got my trio in this morning. I'm out of batteries again though so probably won't be able to get pictures up until this weekend. One female had a few mites and I gave her a warm water bath. Haven't seen any since, but I think an anti-parasitic might be a good idea. What kind do you use (in the yogurt? and what kind of yogurt do you feed?). I haven't seen any of mine eat yet (only a few dusted crickets in there right now and some baby food w/vitamins), but they are drinking. Pics to come soon!

Hey there, good luck with em, hope they do well for you.

Right now i have reptile relief mite spray by natural chemistry, that i spray new arrivals with.

Then i add the anti bacterial and parasite stuff to the yogurt/baby food. Here is a link to info about it. Jungle Reptile (http://www.junglereptile.com/) (click on the products link). Its not really designed for daygecko type species but i use the powder in very small portions, like maybe a finger nails worth. It probably makes up less then 1/10th of the total volume of a serving i give them.

I feed them about about a 2 liter bottle caps worth of the yogurt/daygecko diet/vit/calcium/reptile xtra mix. the amount of vitamin/calcium powder i add is similar to the reptile xtra amounts...lil more calcium then vitamin though. I fed them the mix including the reptile xtra powders for about 3 consecutive days, then took a couple days off, then repeated that atleast 1 more time. Now they just get a lil every once in awhile. Its kinda an experimental mix, but seems to be working well. If you keep using it all the time though any pathogens may build a resistance to it, so wean em off of it by the first month probably, and then maybe hit em with a lil more every great once in awhile.

The yogurt im using is just great value generic brand, fat free strawberry bannana. I do mix in quite a bit of the daygecko diet powder though...but i dont trust it to be a complete meal replacement, hence the yogurt, and the added calcium/vitamins i include.

They get a few meal worms about twice a week also, and i always have random fruitflies flying around my place so they migrate into the tank and i intentionally add some occasionaly. Then every so often they get small dusted or nondusted crickets.

I've a colony of 1:3 Had them about 6 months now,they were wild caught and full of mites. They've settled in nicely now. Treated them for mites,they're all gone now. I've been feeding them crickets and fruit flies mostly, but also suplementing with a fruit based baby food weekly. The male's colour brightens and fades depending on temp and whether he's going to shed or not. Usually he's a vivid blue. They've been laying regularly in clutches of 2 eggs, although they seem to have stopped now, probably the end of the natural breeding season. 2 were infertile, but the others appear to be developing nicely. And. Patience pays off. As of this morning, I've now got 2 very tiny additions to the family :yahoo: They're just too cute. However, I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to care for the youngsters correctly. As far as I know they dont eat for a week or so, living off the last of the yolk. But where do I go from there? I was thinking maybe a combination of fruit flies and baby food. To any of you out there with experience, your advice would be greatly appreciated. :scratchhead:

As i dont have babies yet i cant be sure but.... Small ffs, especially runts from an old culture, and a yogurt or babyfood mixed with some extra vitamins and especially calcium would probably work. I dont know if the young will feed on such a mix that early in their life though. If its a natural viv they may eat springtails and any other small critters in there. I seed mine with temperate and tropical woodlice (rolli pollies) also. Might look online for some springtail or woodlice cultures.

WIth the babies. Give them LOTS of calcium and UV lighting. They will enjoy that. Fruit flys are the way to go for the first 2-3 months. Get some melenogaster cultures going. After that they can start doing fruit flys, pin heads and other small feeders. They did great for me. Very strong and active.

Nice dactylus! I think the thing I like most about these geckos is how bold they are. Mine will hop on the spray nozzle when I am misting them or jump into my hand when I am feeding them. Great personalities, they really deserve their current popularity!

That baby is soooooo precious! My trio is still in quarantine and started eating pinheads yesterday! And all are so personable already. I've seen them posturing to each other already, establishing a hierarchy I suppose. I can definitely tell which female is the "alpha" one. She rules the tank! Watching them eat is another thing entirely-so entertaining! They've even jumped on my fingers while I was cleaning the tank earlier.

Nice thread you've started here Dave! L. williamsii is a great species, and as many have commented, it is worthy of all the attention and praises received.

I'm curious to know if anyone has had success keeping two or more males with multiple females in a large planted vivarium? Any comments on enclosure dimensions to pull off such a feat would be appreciated.

Thx..... I happen to be keeping both my pairs in a 30 cube. I've had them since Dec and it was probably a month before any eggs appeared atleast. They've all been in that tank together since Jan, i believe. One male was unknown but im about 90% sure it is a male now, its just to bright compared to the females and i think i finally saw some femeral pores, and its getting more orange underneath.

I havent witnessed much aggression between the two males, the older/brighter one today walked by the other kinda tentatively and bobbed its head and carefully went by. Most of the aggression i've seen is from the dominate female who pushes everyone around when she wants something ;) they've laid atleast 8 eggs so far, but im just getting to the point that i may start finding hatchlings, assuming the parents dont eat em first, which i've seen with my flying geckos. I think both females are laying, but im not sure the younger male is breeding or not, so far i've only seen breeding with the older one. I was going to seperate the pairs when i figured out sexes, but they seem to be doing well, fat and happy and laying so for now i guess i'll leave em be.

Here is their tank...and a guest appearance!

Thanks for the quick reply and info. That is a great looking vivarium! I really like the substrate. What have you got growing there in the foreground (lower portion that looks to be sloping into the H20)?

I hope you start finding hatchlings!

Thx, originally the tank had tropical moss from T&C terriums, but this tiny tiny liverwort that looks like moss has taken most of it over...The plants growing near the water in the pic are a mix of small ferns(or something similar) that tend to pop up from the t&c moss, and then some micro sword aquatic that does pretty good in a marginal area like that. I cant remember the exact type of aquatic grass it is though. Im not sure its actual micro sword, but something like it.

And I know they are underweight- the just flew in over a week ago and are still settling in. It's terribly hard to get any feeders small enough out here so I just ordered a bunch of fruit flies.

I love this thread, and I LOVE my L. williamsi!!! I can't get over how adorable these critters are, and the blue of the males is just astounding. It's like one of those colors you could never imagine on an animal till you actually see it, you know?

I've had my pair for about 2 months. I stumbled on them by accident. We had a RES turtle, Lulu, that I got tired of cleaning up after (man, they're stinky animals). I took her to the pet store (I know they have a good ongoing business in RES, and plenty of people that are always building bigger tanks and adding turtles, so I knew she would find a home.) I had promised the kids that I would find an animal or animals to put in the tank to take the place of Lulu. It had to be small, because I didn't intend to keep something that needed a 100 gallon tank by the end of it's growth! :)

Oddly, about a week earlier, they had been expecting dwarf newts or something, but ended up with 3 L. williamsi, by accident. Expensive little guys, so they just weren't selling. It was kismet. So I cleaned the tank, set it up as a terrarium, and brought the little ones home, and I've been in love ever since. We've had an egg since mid-March, so maybe we'll have a baby! :)

Now I want to put together a really nice vivarium, like the ones in this thread, and around the other threads here. :) I'm getting a Zoo Med 12x12x18 ...should be plenty big enough for a pair, maybe add a female later, no? I'm also trying to re-sort my furniture around the house to make room for another vivarium, maybe a bigger one, to have some phelsuma.... haven't decided on exactly what phelsuma I want yet.. :)

If anyone has a female to sell, let me know. :)

I just got a pair of these guys yesterday and just got done sitting with a pair of pocket knife tweezers pulling mites. Everything I've read for the last 6-8 months about them and then having them in person is just awesome. I had both licking pear baby food cut with Rep-Cal off my finger tip right after the tweezing and local olive oil spot treatment session.

I'd like to increase my pair to a trio later this year, as well as possibly picking up an additional trio or 2 for diversity. Even my girlfriend is fully on board with them, though not a hard thing to do as she likes the critters i keep. Being the typical girl though, they are "sooooo cute" to her. I have to agree. I dare say their cuteness rivals that of the baby mexican hognose snakes I have, which to me is not an easy task given how cute baby hoggies are period.

Anyhow, enough rambling. I give you "Smurfette"

http://home.comcast.net/~chondrokeeper/Miscellaneous/LyWi3-31-2009-F.jpg

"Papa Smurf" isn't being as bold as the little girl yet and thus hasn't given me the chance to get a good colored up photo of him.

Conclusion: I've had or still have cresteds, quadriocellatas, lat. angularis, tokays, leos, fat-tails, various Coleonyx, and other species of non-geckos, but these Lygos are freak'n cool as hell!

Are you sure that's a female? "She" is awfully blue for a female, and she has a lot of black around her face. My female has almost no black, and no where NEAR a blue color... I'm wondering if you have a young male that hasn't come into his color fully yet...

Lemme find a pic of my female to compare.... Also, my male is my avatar, so compare his black markings around his face to yours - almost identical! No black markings on my female:

I'd have to say i think you may have a juvi male there....My "unknown" looked almost just like that. But I finally hit him with a flash light at the right angle and saw the femeral pores, i couldnt see them before. And yours has even more of a "beard" then mine, which is a predominately male trait i believe. The females can get a lil blue/greenish at their brightest, but are mostly brown or olive.

Here is the unknown that im now 95% sure is a male. As you can see mine has nearly no beard, but im pretty sure what i saw were femeral pores underneath. Also its developing that orangish under belly that seems to be more of a male thing.

Very sorry - I didn't mean to start any tension. I wasn't expecting all this defensiveness.

/explaining my reasoning on

I'm quite new at this, but I have done plenty of research on my little guys... Since I only saw the one pic, I was simply going by the beard markings on the face. The females don't tend to have beards, right?

It really all depends on how old your gecko is, I guess. From what I've read, the pores don't show up in juveniles, and even though it's as big as your other gekk, it could just have a bigger gene pool that him, and still be a juvie, and a male that hasn't developed the pores yet.

And, of course, it could be a female, with a beard. (Thought you only saw bearded ladies at the circus, didn't ya?) :)

NEGATIVE! If anything we're learning more and that's what these forums are for. Please don't take my posting as me taking offense, I'm not.

I'm slightly confused as well, as some readings I've come across stated females had some markings on the chin and males would have a black throat. My definite male has similar markings as my "female".

Zippy
04-02-2009, 08:51 PM
Whew! I read too much into your posts. :) Sorry about THAT now. LOL!!

Well, I'm learning a lot too. I have a pic of my two on the side of the tank, and I zoomed WAY in. Very cool! The male has such an obvious dark inverted V. They both have orange bellies, but the female's fades to yellow toward the front of her body. It's really cool to look at. Lemme see if I can attach the zoomed in pics (my computer crashed on and off for a couple months after I got it, so I gave up loading cool picture editing stuff...)

First, I'll post this, then I'll edit if I get the pics zoomed in. :)

Oh, the tail pad is so cool!! I saw a video of what geckos use their tails for - if their feet slip, they use their tail to lever them back up. Very cool. :)

Ok, first the pic in the pro.breeders series book

Then hearing that they were at Daytona ( for $1000 each like 2 years ago)

And now having seen how BEAUTIFUL they are in every pic all you kind folks have posted, Im gonna need some to maintain my sanity!!!!!!!

BTW, a lot of gex have a pad of adhesive lamelae on the tip of the tail, cresteds just utilize their tail in aprehensile manner, and hold still!

If you ever get the chance, Phelsuma grandis has a small section as well, but hardly anyone tames them so they go berserk if you touch them!

Adding these to my list, or bumping them closer to the top anyways.

I have had great results in making a mixed substrate of a commercial "jungle" earth, spagnum, crushed pieces of dried leafs (oak and birch) and pieces of wood.

I noticed that after I put that substrate in with the geckos they began to forrage the floor for food as well as the upper parts of the vivarium. I have seen my geckos catch a woodlice every now and then even though I rarely put them in there, so they do keep an eye out for food down there.

The wood in the substrate also help woodlice and springtails to survive better and be more prolific.

From what I think myself I recon the geckos get more activated by the very uneven substrate because they can not just scan the floor for food at a single glance from a single spot. They would have to move around and look at it from different angles and even then the woodlice would still be able to hide.

I just had my first hatchling and female just scoffed it. I am devastated. After reading on this forum a lot of people have said parents don't show much interest. I have at least another 10 eggs so time to remove them. Lesson for everyone remove eggs!
I was curious what kind of yoghurt are you feeding your gecko's?

I just had my first hatchling and female just scoffed it. I am devastated. After reading on this forum a lot of people have said parents don't show much interest. I have at least another 10 eggs so time to remove them. Lesson for everyone remove eggs!
I was curious what kind of yoghurt are you feeding your gecko's?

Yep, some have issues while others have no issues. Depends on the parents I guess. :/

I had two groups of these setup in natural 10 gals and had some success breeding and raising the babies. When space became an issue I had to get rid of them but now a couple months later have another pair and will probably be getting a second. Awesome little geckos, with amazing colors. I also got a group of lygodactylus capensis and kimhowelli to mess around with. All the ones I have gotten seem to be very hearty for such a small gecko acclimating to captivity. I definetly have had mite issues on almost all my lygos and use provent a mite on them. Works great but be careful...very potent product.

anyone have an extra female they'd be willing to get rid of (prefer CB, but at this point would consider WC too) ? I've been searching since April with no luck, including a couple of ads in the classifieds here. I'd be up for a few juvs too probably with the chance I could grow out a female.. I'm getting desperate haha. Check dendroboard.com (tclipse over there... btw hey Dave!) for my classifieds rep.. plenty of references over there too.

What's with the ratio anyways? Is it just the importation that is male heavy or do they breed that way too?
