    Default Screen Cage


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Having a hard time choosing the next gecko I'll get, possibly a giant day gecko. It's gottta be able to live in a screen enclosure! Any other suggestions? I have a couple others in mind but figured I would see what everyone else has to say!

    We have a P. grandis living in a screen terrarium, maintaining humidity is a little harder but that's abouth it. In the summer we take him outside for a few month's, works perfect.

    We have also kept Crested gecko's and white lined gecko's in screen tanks with no problems, also Uroplatus which worked realy great but those last ones are much harder to keep and need much more attention than most other gecko's.

    Depends on where you keep the gecko, here in Florida I keep all my species in screen cages outside, even in ambient dry winters here they are OK though I spray them in winter a couple of times per week. If you are up north in the dry winter humidity will definitely be an issue, a damp clammy basement would help with that but you would need to spray daily and maybe more than once a day. You should give us more detail about where you are and where you plan to keep them.

    I'm in Indiana. Humidity isn't a concern for me. Keeping chams allows you to learn all the tricks for keeping it up lol They would get misted daily by a mist system. I actually do have a full walk in basement where I keep my reptiles. More or less, I'm looking for geckos that are arboreal. Since they would be housed in a tall scree cage!

    If you can keep chameleons i'm sure you know what your'e doing and keeping Uroplatus should be no problem then.

    A little off-topic but what species of chameleons do you keep?

    Nice I am sure they will do well in your care and they do love airflow so if the Chams are doing OK the geckos will as well. Since this a gecko forum you won't find many or any Chameleons for sale, I keep a pair of Bradypodium thmanobates and like this gecko forum there is a decent chameleon forum as well as Fauna with usually several veiled for sale.

    Awesome! And I didn't mean if there is any chams for sale, I meant if there are any day gecko breeders on here that are selling. I am a member of a chameleon forum all ready lol
