    I would not use an all-screen enclosure for Uroplatus mate these are designed for chamaeleons...at least the front doors and back pane should be all glass or else it will not retain enough moisture

    Well, I wasnt necessarily speaking in terms of husbandry. The geckos I listed might not be the easiest Uroplatus, but they are the most common here. I would imagine that guntheri and pietschmanni are the easiest to care for for beginners. I would not recommend someone dropping $250-$400 on their first Uroplatus/pair. In the US, you can get a good deal at an expo, as long as you know what to look for. It is always best to buy these geckos in person, so that you can see what you are getting.

    The temps in Houston dont matter...as long as you are not keeping them outside and DO have AC/Central air. But I dont know anyone here that doesnt have AC/Central air.

    thorrshamri, I understand what you are saying and you are correct (about easiest species to care for), but right now, it is easier to get a female U.malama than a female guntheri ...i think.

    I have no personal experience with pietschmanni but do you really mean what you said: "one of the easiest species in the genus"? From what I have heard, they are as fragile as sikorae and more complicated to breed...

    I have heard they are the easiest/second easiest to keep. I have had a pair for a couple weeks now, they seemed to come around real quickly...Now breeding is a different story .
    Usually with Uroplatus, when people say easy to keep, they are referring to humidity requirements.
