Well its getting awful slow in here, and these geckos are really growing on me. I just love how they are so vocal and variable they are, wish I got more into them when the getting was good.

I really need to get some of these. I love the Cyrtodactylus peguensis.

I must find me some C. Elok some day, they are amazing.

Yes the color variation, the vocalization, and the fact that pegu's live so long! I have a c.b. male that is 9 years old! He still chirps like he's two! Hope to get him some girls sometime next year.

I would really like to get into Cyrtodactylus peguensis. Their such an interesting species. Having a hard time locating some nice ones.

I would really like to get into Cyrtodactylus peguensis. Their such an interesting species. Having a hard time locating some nice ones. I noticed that glades herp was selling a small male pegu at the narbc in tinley but was missing his entire tail, so I did'nt bother to buy it. It was cheap too, only $35. If it some how manages to stay alive, in a few weeks I would check back with them to see if its still available? After dropping their tails sometimes they make it, and sometimes they don't. It looked young, so I have to say maybe it will live long enough to regrow its tail. Its a gamble when you see them like that.

Wish we could access some of these species in Australia. We are restricted to the one native species C. louisiadensis, of which I have five. I've attached a picture of a recently acquired hatchling. Great geckos; such voracious eaters with great personalities but some of the other members of the genus look like intriguing animals.

Wow they are all absolutely beautiful especially the C. peguensis :D Do you know if yours are C. p. peguensis or zebraicus?

I don't know what subspecies they are Siri, they were just sold as penguensis. Do you know what the differences are between the two?

Thanks Derek

Nice looking geckos Derek. They remind me of A. felinus in a lot of ways. Are their personalities similar to the cats?

DDReptiles
10-20-2009, 02:05 PM
They are a lot more vocal than my cats, never heard my cat geckos make any sounds.

They have a little more fiesty personalities, then again some of my cats are not the cudliest of creatures ;)

They're all amazing but that C.Penguensis is awesome :D! Out of all the Crytodactylus species you own which do you like more?

I like them all in different ways, I only keep animals I find interesting. :)

Hehe, guess that was a redundant question to ask :blushing:. Lately, I've been hearing more and more about the Crytodactylus species and personally I've really taken an interest in them...Sigh, Derek your pictures are just adding fuel to the fire!:shock::lol:

Yeah, the cats aren't overly vocal. But be assured that they can vocalize. Scared the crap out of me the first time one screamed at me! :lol:

Hello Derek,


no I'm sorry I also don't know the difference. I already asked this question on a german herps forum and someone told me they can be distinguished by the number of rows of the ventral scales :? But I'm not very keen on this... There's a paper that says that it is the best to know the locality to distinguish them. But I don't know where my animals come from.
I was curious because the two animals I bought at the last Hamm show from another GU member look so different from my other animals. I try to take some pics.

My ear hurt when my CB A. felinus female screamed at me! :D

I'll throw in a few pictures. Guess what they are. Shouldn't be too hard.

Best,

1st- quadrivigatus
2nd- intermedius
3rd- chanhomae? (do you breed these?)

JimmyNightlizard
10-22-2009, 11:26 PM
Yep 1st one is either quadrivirgatus or pubisulcus? I could never tell those two species apart. 2nd one is definately intermedius! The 3rd looks to be a juvenile Chanhomeae. I would love to see more Cyrtodactylus chanhomeae in the hobby! Hopefully the individuals that have them are working with them and having success w/ their captive breeding efforts.

Good to see there still is an interest in the genus. Here are some more Cyrtodactylus chanhomeae pictures.
I have started the process of using egg laying boxes and doubled cage sizes for this rare species.

Beautiful chanhomeae Shane...
did you produce a few offsprings since you have been keeping them?

here is my contribution to this thread:

Wow butterfly bent toe geckos. Hav'nt seen any cyrtodactylus papilionoides in quite some time! Thanks for sharing your pics Pierre! I used to have one myself a few years ago, but he sadly past away. When I had him though, I remember the cool mating call he did at night, similar in a way to peguensis zebraicus with the high volume and number of vocalizations, 5 or 6 times in a row each time. But did not sound like a birds chirp at all. It sounded more like a duck clucking. I attached a picture of him.

Those are some cool cyrto's Pierre! I never worked with those but had seen them at a Los Angeles dealer many years ago when I was more into the Uroplatus genus. Keep us up with your success and how similar they are to the peguensis and type species.
All of my chanhomeae came in as babies to subs and in one pair a young adult, that adult actually has given me a couple dried sets (could be my lack of inspecting) and the next eldest pair gave me one infertile set recently. I hopefully will be getting some success soon, but am happy just to keep healthy for now as many of the few imports have died under captive conditions.

i only have these for a few months,so i don't know that much about them yet.

good luck with the chanhomeae, Shane.
i could have got a dozen of them here in UE since last couple of years,but finally i let them go into other hands...now i think that they will be part of "my quest" for the years to come .
i know a few are still around and a very few may probably come in also.as an example,last 6 fresh imported specimens i saw,about 6 months ago, were shipped from Malaysia into a spider shipment from a spider dealer.my papilionoides came also from that source .

jimmy;i have 3 papiolionoides and 4 peguensis males in the same room,so believe me,it is sometimes getting quite loud at night,but i do sleep heavily...;-)

JimmyNightlizard
12-05-2009, 10:46 PM
Ohh that would be so cool to listen to all of them! Its almost like having mini thailand jungle in your house! hahaha...I like the chirps, my 9 year old pegu was chirping today. He's my alarm clock! He seems to have a bit of a white cataract on one of his eyes, it started as a small white dot, but has been growing slowly over the last few years. I hope its nothing serious. He still eats good. Do you know what the life span is for peguensis? Someone once told me it was 8-12 years for females, and 15-20 years for males. Does that sound accurate to you?

Never worked with these guys before but those Cyrtodactylus peguensis really caught my eye! Do Crydos in general need to be cooled, or will they breed without cooling?

I see you are a fellow goni collector! You'll be happy to know that I keep both the goniurosaurus, and cyrtodactulus species. I keep mainly the C. pulchellus and G. hainanensis. I should have babies of both available for sale sometime over the summer and the fall months. I have Cyrtodactylus pulchellus eggs incubating right now. They take 5 months to hatch. So hopefully will have acouple of babies by may? I see your looking to get some cyrto's. Send me a PM if you want to discuss this further?

Nice! Gotta love the pegu porn! The male looks alittle surprised being caught in the act! LOL! Do you keep your pair together all the time? How long have you been keeping these little guys?
