    Default Cyrtodactylus Philippinicus Info


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    hey guys,

    just thought i'd share a few things i discovered lately about this particular species of bow-fingered gecko.. a few months ago i released one of my geckos since she was the eldest in the tank and i thought she deserved being set free after i captured her last year and waited til she laid eggs in the tank.. i set her free at the hill where i captured her last year but not at the exact spot where i first found her, i set her free at a spot with lots of craggy rocks and palm trees and hoped she'll do well.. a few months later i went back to the hill to collect feeder bugs for my other geckos when i found her at the spot where i set her free.. i was amazed that she didn't move from that area.. she looked very healthy and even gained weight but she still had her trademark tail (that's how i knew it was her) her tail markings were unusual for her species, it had the bands that were normal for her kind but only near the base.. the rest of the tail was brown in color with specks of yellow.. i'm curious if her behavior is shared with others of her species or displayed only by her..

    "Be like the gecko.. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.."

    Yep,

    It is a good thing.

    In phillipines, you have the right(law) to maintain the local fauna in captivity?

    C. Philippinicus is a beautiful species, have you some pics?

    cordially

    This shot is a poor scan (the colours are far richer in the original) of a slide I took on Polillo Island in 2002. C. philippinicus is common there and I saw many specimens, but this particular encounter was rather cool:
