    Default cyrtodactylus louisiadensis


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    greetings gecko world,

    new to the site, searching for care info. recently bought two gecko's from a local show.
    the guy had them named incorrectly. after diligent search I have discovered what they actually are, cyrtodactylus louisiadensis. how ever there is not much out there on this particular species. any one with some knowledge of or similar species would be a great help. I currently have crested ,tokay, Halmahera and these two guys ...well gals

    was cleaning my Halmahera (Gehyra Marginata) enclosure and decided to share her pics as well

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited! Cyrtodactylus is a pretty awesome genus.

    I keep and breed Cyrtodactylus peguensis zebraicus. Their care may be similar to Cyrtodactylus louisiadensis.
    Another resource is FB's Bow-Fingered Geckos-Cyrtodactylus group.

    thanks for the info. I've been treating them same as my other gecko's till I learned more. temp and humidity hovering at 70. both were dehydrated one really bad. she has sat at her water dish drinking on and off all day.
    mine appear a little different than yours these being the giant version are about 10 - 12 " long. dark brown to almost black at times with tan body banding and long boney toes. only had them 1 day. still trying to nourish them to good health and time to adjust. ill keep this up dated so we all can learn :P

    You're welcome! I feel GU is all about sharing.

    Re-hydrating dehydrated geckos is the first rule of thumb prior to feeding them. That's much better for their internal organs.

    By the way, are your 2 noobs wild caught? Mostly like they are insectivores.

    Mine really like Exo Terra's twisty vines WITHOUT moss! Even for my adults I twist one vine with another or back onto itself. Those give their boney toes something to grip and allows them to explore more of their enclosure.

    yes, I'm guessing wild caught. guy said he just got them in and was rare. very near adult size . liked them so well, had never seen them. bought them both.

    Let us know when they eat.

    • Have you placed these females in separate quarantine enclosures apart from your other geckos for about 90 days?
    • Examine their skins for mites. Mine have all been captive bred. That mostly takes away the mite worry.
    • What brand supplements have you?
    • My females sometimes lay infertile eggs as they reach maturity. They can reabsorb those eggs or lay them -- even though they have not been mated. That really takes a toll on them. One of my 10 month old subadult females recently went off food for 1 month! My first 2 females died from calcium crashes, even though the second was under vet care.

    good post. I've ran into the same argument in my readings. no one seems to agree on the exact taxonomy.
    yes, all my animals are in separate enclosures to avoid stress ,tails nips.
    not knowing what they were or needed I gave them a water dish(clearly dehydrated)
    5 crickets each (powdered in reptivite)
    2 horn worms and a small dish of my crestie Pangea. so they had plenty to choose from though neither have eaten but do drink water

    Those choices are excellent!

    I'm curious about your Reptivite. Does it contain D3?

    I've been supplementing my sub-adult cyrts from the time they hatch with a 1-2 week rotation of Reptivite (no D3), Zoo Med Repti Calcium (with D3), and plain calcium carbonate (either Zoo Med's Repti Calcium or NOW). That's definitely more than I supplement any other gecko, but they've done well by it. They seem to require all that calcium carbonate. That's a benefit of Zoo Med products.

    My 2 female breeders and the upcoming male usually get each of these supplements at one feeding per week. At 1 feeding they get 2 medium crickets lightly dusted with Repti Calcium with D3, the next feeding they get plain calcium carbonate, and the 3rd feeding per week they get Reptivite (without D3).

    My vet has suggested using a wee pinch of Reptivite at no more than at 1 feeding per week, especially because too much retinol could cause problems.

    My crickets eat finely ground Zoo Med's Natural Adult Bearded Dragon Food and sometimes Cricket Crack.
