    Thanks for inviting me to the group Jon. I've been keeping grandis for about 8 years now and have produced many young over the years. They have to be my absolute favourite and have given. Myself and my family much joy over the years.

    I wanted to ask others what viv size they are using? I use vivs which are 3ft x 3ft x 2ft (LHW) but I see so many people keeping them in much smaller areas, mine will happily jump 2ft + to get to a cricket or just for fun seemingly

    Great questions with a lot of opinions. In general the largest cage you can provide the better except in the case of hatchlings. Hatchlings can get lost in too large of an enclosure and have difficulty finding their food so they require a smaller enclosure.

    I have raised P. gandis in many size enclosures and I do not think there is an absolute rule. There are so many variables like how the cage is designed and furnished, whether or not the inhabitants get along, how it is heated and how UV light is supplied, whether the cage is inside or outside and whether the inhabitants are breeding and laying eggs.

    As a general guideline an adult should not be housed in an enclosure smaller than 24 high x 18 wide x 12 deep.

    Hope this helps and hopefully other members chime in.

    Some great points, what do other members think? Agree totally with the hatchling stuff. I keep mine in pint cups for the first month or so (individually) then use the small critter keepers until they are about 4 months or so. Usually I sell/swap at this age but for the very few I keep for longer I use an 18 ins cube exo

    Hello,
    I'm new here and I'm new to Giant Day Geckos as well. I decided to go with them after doing some EXTENSIVE research (thanks to GiantDayGeckos.com/other websites as well). I have a male and female around 7-8 months old. The male is about 8inches and the female is about 7 1/2 inches right now. My goal is to breed the pair which the hatch-lings should be 60-70% red hopefully. I hope they're compatible. In the beginning the male kept chasing the female non stop. It seems they're "getting along" and I say this because he doesn't chase her like he did before. The enclosure is pretty big 30x18x30. Hopefully I can benefit from you guys!

    Hi, I'm from NY and currently have 4 giant day gecko babies. I'm totally fascinated by the blue blood morphs and mine are all blue bloods from different sources, three came from Rob at IslandGeckos. He's great to deal with and has been great returning my correspondence of concerns. I hope to breed them someday.
