I am receiving my first group of Hardwickii soon! I would love to hear any tips and tricks as far as keeping them. I've read a few things here and there, but there isn't a lot of info as there is with other species. I have heard they tend to like more humidity, similar to that of the African Fat Tails. Any other information about them as far as breeding, husbandry, feeding, egg incubation, etc would be much appreciated!

Welcome to GU! I suspect I know who you're getting this group from. I got a female from him last year and will get a male soon. I've had her for nearly a year now. I have her on a bioactive setup which doesn't have plants at the moment but probably will soon. I mist the cage every morning (same schedule as my AFT's). I feed her crickets. I thought she was eating the mealworms I provided, but I found that actually the crickets were eating the mealworms. She is pretty reclusive; I rarely see her out and she barely tolerates being held. I hope to find out about breeding her next season.

Thanks for sharing your experience so far with your female. It's tough to find a generous amount of information on them. I have bred the common leopard gecko in the past (I still have a few that are just my pets) and I'm currently working with Rhacodactylus auriculatus. Not a difficult species at all to work with of course, but I enjoy them very much. I've been wanting to get back into Eublepharis again and thought if I did, I'd go with a wild type species that isn't commonly seen in the hobby and take on a new challenge, so I chose hardwickii.
As soon as I get them and start working with them, I'm sure I'll add more to this thread.Post Thanks / Like - 0 Thanks, 1 LikesElizabeth Freer liked this post

You can also check out John Scarborough at geckoboa.com who keeps and breeds a number of Eublepharis species including E. hardwickii.
