Hi!!

May I introduce you to my newest habitant.

This is a 20 years old (+/- 1 yr) field collected (when young) male Rhacodactylus leachianus from Mont Doré locality

He is a really calm and peacefull animal and really a joy to have him with me now.

He sustained when young in the wild an eye injury that left him blind from its left eye, but it doesn't bother him much, he is just slightly more vigilent when sounds or vibration comes from that side.

All the best

I was happy that my young male finally accepted his very first cricket!! :-)

Can't wait for him to be old and big enough so I can pair him with the old lady

Hello!!

The old lady is doing good, she got back a more "natural" behavior, less docile than before.
The Young male is doing great and is growing fast

Hello

I found the other week duds eggs from my old lady. I knew she had laid eggs, actually I think she had done it several times, but only found eggs now. At least it is good to know she still can lay
I am waiting that the young male will be big enough and sexualy mature to put him with her.
