    A warm welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    I suggest additional foliage -- real or silk -- to fill in the empty spaces. Both your male and your female U. sikorae will definitely appreciate more hiding places.

    Uroplatus sikorae are AWESOME! I wish I had kept some.

    They will definitely like the climbing sticks, and I like the natural look of your tanks! Agreed, more foliage would make your geckos feel more comfortable and secure. Welcome!

    Hi Katie ~

    May I ask how long you've had this pair? How are they doing?

    Geckos Unlimited would love for you to be successful as a keeper.

    Uroplatus sikorae, and Uroplatus in general, are sorta temperamental and not very forgiving.

    Thank you so much for the reply! I've been waiting for some of the plants to grow out more, but I definitely think I should add more until they do!

    I've actually only had them for about two months now and so far, so good! This is my first time owning anything from the genus and I'm very glad that I chose these two! They eat extremely well and I've tried to get them a little more comfortable with me. (nothing too extreme, I don't wanna stress them out!) Recently, they've both taken a couple crickets when I tong fed them and my male took one from my hand! (I released the rest of their meal in their enclosures b/c I know they loveee hunting lol) This may not seem like much, but I was very happy! I'm not trying to necessarily get them to be handleable... (I just don't think they like it too much...) but I would love for them to at least not see me as a threat and to have comfortable lives

    Thanks for the good wishes!!

    You're welcome, Katie.

    Uros are definitely watch-only geckos! I don't recommend handling either of them at all.

    How about dangling silk plants from the screen top to fill in the void?

    Sounds great! I just got paid today, so I'll definitely get them some silk plants for the time being
