    i second justin's comment. if you really want to make yourself feel smart, write your own freakin sheet. then, if you really want to, ask other people on the site who's is better. i guarantee it'll be mine, because i don't do the stupid things you do. i don't want you to post anything else on this care sheet.

    it'd be nice to know the temps preferred by the guys. For sure you aren't suggesting keeping them at 65? maybe day temps in mid-high 70's and night temps in low 70's 60's?

    Be careful a lot of them at petsmart are wild- caught. I've heard of stories of them attacking employees when they were trying to handle them. They're really fast too.

    I keep several Pictus geckos and have succesfully bred them. The care sheet is very good but personally I would avoid sand as substrate. I use eco earth or similar for adults and paper towel for hatchlings. Mine tolerate a warm end temp of 85F with a temp gradient to 65/70F at the cool end. I dont alter temps at night and my reproom is maintained at around 70F. They are a fast little gecko and will take any opportunity to escape. They breed like rabbits and the main problem is stopping them from breeding. (the female will continue to lay eggs many months after mating) The male should not be kept in the tank with females other than for mating introductions. The breeding female needs good nutritional support and supplimentation. As they lay a large number of clutches (2 small hard shelled eggs per clutch) calcium is vital. Many females have died during breeding through calcium loss. They are a very under rated little gecko but seem to be gaining a bit of popularity in the UK. They are more suited to being a display reptile rather than one for 'petting'. Their simple and prolific breeding in captivity really does away for any need to obtain w/c specimens.

    Can I also take this opportunity to say hi to everyone. I hope to be visiting this forum a little more often.
