I thought I would share a few pictures of the Gekko petricolus pair I have, enjoy!

Male. His colors are not as nice as they usually are. He is a little stressed from being taken out of the cage and chased around the reptile room a few times.

I was pretty lucky to get this pair. I have been wanting a pair of these for quite a while now. I have got one egg from them so far, not sure if it is fertile I really have not looked at it to check. Hopefully I get lots of breeding this year from the pair.

I`m breeding this Species since more than 15 years.
You can get between 12 and 20 eggs from one female the year.
The Problem is i breed much!!! more females than males.
Sometimes i had 10 young females and no male:sad:
I checked the Temperatures in nature but have no idear whats wrong.
If i get some males then mostly true the winter season (little colder)

sorry for my bad english:)

I can make out what you are saying, your English is not to bad. So you think if they incubate a little cooler there will be more males? What is the normal incubation time for these eggs?

Normaly they need from 70 to 80 days.
In nature they stop laying eggs in beginnig of oktober (its the beginnig of dry and colder season)
I dont know exactly when they start again, cause i ve been there 4 times only inbetween the month from Oktober( little last rain ) until early Januar(very,very dry!!!)
But this southern part of Isan is not (!) so cold like 200 or 300 Km northwards where you have often 8 or 12 C at Nighttime in that season.

Here in Germany they stop breeding only for 2 - 3 Month (depends on how hard the winter is) Normaly around Dez. / Jan.

I measured temperature day maximum of 31,2 C and minimum 20,7 C at nighttime in November (at Kaeng Thana NP /Ubon Province NE Thailand)
Humidity 58 % (day ) to 90% at night.
That is close to what they get in my Home in wintertime.

Beautiful Cliff! There was a pair advertised recently that I almost picked up but didn't. Now seeing how beautiful yours are, I'm kicking myself :lol: Enjoy them!

There are very few pairs in the US that I know of, you should of got them. I be leave this is the pair that you saw advertised. I just got these not to long ago. I only know of a few pairs in the US so I snagged these up.
