    Default nephrurus laevissimus cooling question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Good evening guys,
    coming here with a question regarding laevissimus, i literally searched the whole internet for infos but seems to be nothing about them, only pics and a few data about their breeding weight.

    i heard they are difficult to manage during this delicate period, and sometimes healthy animals die with no reason.
    Do you have some quick tips to offer about the way you brumate yours? for how long and at what temperatures?

    thanks

    3.2 Nephrurus deleani

    No experience, but I've lost even levis levis during cooling, some main breeders do not even cool and think it is necessary with that being said I wouldn't try cooling em at all....

    Do you cool your Pilbarensis?

    Hmm, This season, I will just let them continue without cooling. I've heard mixed reviews!

    Are you trying for a particular colour?

    There pretty cool geckos! 1st year breeding I've hatched 4 babies from the 1 female and another 2 on the way.

    Will you be getting them again??

    I am actually trying hard with desperation to obtain them again. What morphs did you produce? Your 4 babies. definitely my favorite of nephrurus species...

    I'm not entirely sure of what "morphs" they are, but I bought a female 100% het for albino and she's a yellowish colour and bred her with a red male. The babies are too young now to say which colour they will become!

    Come September I will most likely breed her with a more strong yellow male. I may well get an albino to guarantee the albino part.

    I live in Australia, so we have a limited number of gecko's, and the Nephrurus family are definitely the most pretty for me. The Nephrurus Amyaes are also quite cool!

    We have 115 species of Gecko here in Aus! I've just got my first pair of Levis Levis. They are a bit young but hopefully I can start breeding next season. As for cooling, I'm looking at cooling my Bynoe's by about 5 degrees. I know that where I bought them from they never cooled. I have two pairs so I might cool one pair and see how they go and leave the others and see what happens.
