    Even though Lygodactylus mombasicus and Lygodactylus picturatus live
    side by side in the wild they tend to avoid each other. L. mombasicus
    frequents house walls, L. picturatus frequents tree trunks. Juveniles of
    both species tend to occupy bushes or small trees. Never saw either
    adult male species with more than one female, always just a pair.
    Watching their eating behavior it seemed that L. mombasicus had a
    preference for ants as they would position themselves by an ant trail
    and pick them off as the ants went past.
    Wonder if they also need a wet/dry period as in the wild. Long rains
    in May/June and short rains in Dec.
    These are my personal observations in Diani Beach, south Kenyian
    coast, south of Mombasa.

    Good to know that about the L. mombasicus and L. picturatus of that locality. The wet and dry periods is something that I try to mimic to the extent that is possible in the vivarium and so far all seems to go well.

    That site you were at is also a site B. Röll has observed, if I recall correctly. It is from those and other observations she wrote her book, Lygodactylus.

    Default cage size?

    would a 12x12x12 exo terra cage be ok to house one of these?

    Default Do you still breed them?

    I would love to get my hands on some of these dwarves. Does anyone know of a breeder?

    Cape Yellow Head
    Unless there is a picture supplied with that ad (and is 100% accurate) I am willing to bet it is not a L. mombasicus being offered with the williamsi. Quite a few people have tagged this supposed 'cape yellow head' as a Lygodactylus capensis, while the pictures show Lygodactylus kimhowelli, Lygodactylus picturatus, Lygodactylus grotei.. etc...... So you really have no clue what you will get. Lygodactylus capensis is commonly called the 'cape gecko' and not a yellow head cape gecko.

    It has been a long time since L. mombasicus was imported and very few people have them remaining in their collections sadly.
