    May I offer a suggestion?

    It may be a bit risky letting your little gecko grow up with the parents. Just wish it to enjoy a long life. What do you think about separating it?

    I don't want you to be thinking down the line: "Now where could that little guy be?" Ya never know when someone might wake up hungry!

    Oddly enough, I think LF is too shy, the little one seems to move freely without fear. By the size of it, it must have been in there for a couple weeks. I have always said that I am not in this as a breeder and am prepared for the likelihood of most babies becoming dinner. If I have the chance, I will move it but it is very fast and there are a lot of hiding places.

    My wife has officially named it, "Rio"



    There appears to peaceful coexistence between LF and Rio, Rio seems to actually bring LF out of her shell. I observe Rio bouncing around like a wild child as Lf calmly watches before crawling back into her bamgoo home. Rio has chosen the bromeliad as home.

    LF and Rio have new neighbors, thus making me an official frogger. 1 female and 2 male Bronze-Backed Mantella. The female is noticeably larger and, to my unpracticed eye, looks gravid. Man...these guys are like vacuum cleaners when fed fruit flies. Any concerns that they would remain at the bottom was rapidly dispelled when one was found sitting saucily on the bamboo. One climbed the glass and I was afforded a view of its ventral side....think of a pitch black sky, liberally sprinkled with aquamarine stars....I was blown away. Bring it on PDF-ers

    They have all seeming settled in and found hiding spots that suit them...until I add more fruit flies...then they become a marauding herd mowing down hapless fruit flies....Oh!...the carnage!!

    I was granted a rare LF sighting today

    She is, by far, the shyest gecko in my collection. She is the mother of the baby, Rio, and is contrary to the rule that adults relish the taste of their young.

    I am coming to believe that geckos do have personality and she is simply lonesome. She seems to be slowly becoming acclimated and more sociable after the addition of her progeny and the frogs.

    Rio, on the other hand, is bold as ever and is starting to believe that she is a frog

    I've had the weekend off and the wife is working. In between assorted chores, I got to gecko watch...It has been most entertaining. LF is the mother of both Rio and baby yet to be named, she is a very shy girl. This weekend I've have been watching her begin to come out of her shell. Rio is developing rapidly, having tripled in size in the last month. Rio is also a very visible gecko and seems quite confident, Rio seems to have assumed the leadership role with LF and is seeming showing the mother the best feeding areas and bringing her out of her shell.

    Rio and the baby yet to be named also have an interesting relationship...much more aggression, with Rio chasing the baby a bit yesterday...Today the baby has been teasing the older Rio by hiding and then jumping out and scaring the crap outta Rio...It seems that siblings are quite similar overall
