    Thanks, Aliza.

    They're too jumpy to do group hatchling shot like this:

    At least for now this borrowed photo will have to suffice:

    Goodness! That is a lot of little chirpies Elizabeth! They are adorable little babies, I especially love the video of the reaction to his own voice.

    It certainly is, Cory! They've been hatching mid-month since February. I've got 10 good eggs to go and I'm not sure whether either female is finished laying. I wonder how many will be male. Pretty soon I may have a real chorus.

    That very video sparked my interest in this genus and particular species.

    Is it only males who vocalize? What type of housing do they require? It appears to be a live planted vivarium I'm guessing being from S.E. Asia they need higher relative humidity.
    The volume that little fellow produces is remarkable given his size. He looks like he is no bigger than Apollo's tail, but not nearly as big around

    Males vocalize pretty loudly! I've infrequently heard my females peep softly.

    They don't have "sticky feet", so giving them something to grip lets them fully explore their homes.

    My younger male weighs 7.8 grams. He seems to have maxed out. The 5.5 yo male is larger. Both females weigh 10+ grams.

    My 5.5 yo male has a "gecko-dom" of sorts: a 20 gallon regular with a cork background that's 2/3 size, 3 long cork tunnels, 2 thick Exo Terra twisty vines, a 3 inch diameter water dish, and many silk plants that hang from the sides and top. A second 20 will await the young male. Right now the females are in XL Kritter Keepers to make my egg hunt less disruptive.

    3 of 4 have glass feeding dishes

    The mature geckos have layered substrates:
    • bottom layer = Hydroton clay marbles
    • middle layer = weedblocker cloth
    • top layer(s) = well washed fine grade orchid bark in the male's viv; Eco Earth's coco fiber in the females' Kritter Keepers
