    Can you see the pair of appendages ending the "head" of this microscopic view of a reptile mite? There are 250+ species of mites known to infest reptiles but most of them have the same overall anatomy. These are the said rostrum. It is through this piercing organ that mites go through skin and are able to feed on their hosts. When feeding, mites always use the full length of it, so by drowning them, as the rostrum-head connexion is fragile, you risk breaking both appendages which will hereafter stay inside the host's body.

    I treated all those 28 mites immediately after purchasing the WC flyer male. I only needed to treat them once. None returned. So thankful I did not have more to deal with in the cage furnishings and all.

    Here's some additional info to consider:

    Are these available in canada? I'm expecting, if anywhere, to find them at an expo, but if anyone know any breeders, it would be greatly appreciated! Great care sheet btw!

    GU's Palor (Daniel Martindale) has had good success breeding Ptychozoon kuhli. He lives in the USA.

    Hi, does anyone know how often should D3 should be given dusted on feeders to them? I use sticky farm tunge indoors mineral all. Does anyone have a proper picture that show the difference between male and female, and between subspecies?

    Do you have a Ptychozoon kuhli? Is this gecko about 6 months or older?

    I have a captive hatched P. kuhli from June 2006 who is thriving. Along the way she developed large calcium sacs on both sides of her neck. For that reason I have NOT lightly dusted her crickets with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 or any multivitamins for years!

    However, all her crickets are gutloaded with Zoo Med's Natural ADULT Bearded Dragon Food 24/7. That seems to supply all the nutrients she needs. Zoo Med's Natural Adult Bearded Dragon Food contains a small amount of "Vitamin D3 Supplement". 'Vitamin D3 Supplement" = cholecalciferol.

    Sticky Tongue Farms' Miner-all Indoor formula contains 4,400 IU of D3 per kg while ZM's Repti Calcium with D3 contains 22,907 IU of D3/kg. Vitamin D3 is fat soluble. That means that a D3 dose 1x per week sticks around in a gecko's body all week long. If a gecko is young, then add plain calcium at a 2nd feeding per week.


    Please share images of your gecko's vent.

    Please start a new thread for your gecko in this subforum: http://www.geckosunlimited.com/community/other-geckos/
    You'll get more help there, without cluttering up the care sheet thread.
