prolific stowaways,they are apparently all over the states now,
my m8s had a group inbreeding in his cricket room since the mid 90s(he recons one escaped gravid female is to blame),whenever he catches them he usually gives them to me,but where the room is warm and theres loads of food for em they lay eggs and he cant seem to get them all,its been 15+years now,lol,
some seriously inbred geckos:/
i got a baby in a box of crickets once,complete accident,it just fell in as he tapped the egg crate,
great species to keep/watch,they will use alot more space than youd think for their size though,
give plenty of cover and some nice cork/branches if you plan on keeping it,when they feel secure you will notice they are much more bold,maybe find her some cage mates,they are arborial and very fast,so if you get the cage right they can be great to watch.

she has two cage waiting to be cage mates currently i'm waiting for them to get a little bigger haha. and i've ordered a 45 gal screen enclosure that i'm going to plant up and let them loose in :) currently she is in a 15 gal tall and keeps on/in her plants lol
