    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Attachment 49527Attachment 49525I got a gecko for my birthday. I named it Gibon. I have it in a small tank now but my dad said we will either build a bigger one, or use an old 30 gallon fish tank he has in storage. Today Iím learning how to post on this forum and post pictures.

    Elizabeth,

    I’m glad you asked. Dad was going to ask in the identification thread too. The pet store said he, (or it, were not sure if the sex yet either) was a phelsuma Dubai. But he is very bright and looks like a grandis. So I feel unsure. He did not really match the description or other pictures of a Dubai.

    BTW what is the difference between the quick reply spot and the button that says reply to thread?

    Jacob.

    You probably did a quick reply. When you press "Reply With Quote" that particular message is automatically included in your reply. I pressed "Reply With Quote" when I replied to your last message.

    Your birthday gecko is beautiful!

    Phelsuma dubia don't seem nearly as common as Phelsuma grandis or Phelsuma madagascariensis. Are you on facebook? The Phelsuma Phanatics group there is a good source for IDing your new gecko.

    This link might be helpful.

    It definitely looks like a P.m.grandis to me. If so, it will get pretty big and may need a larger enclosure than a 30 gallon eventually.

    He does seem to be growing fast. I think he is about 5 inches now. But we don’t really know how old he is. We’ve had him about a month now.
