    I'd go for a pictus gecko, their care is similar if not the same to a leopard gecko.

    Good luck!

    What???

    Excuse me but i have done credible research, you may not know us (me and my partner) or didn't read my signature but we have been keeping P. picta for a very long time and with a very high succes ratio.
    We , together with some very close friends , have been studying Malagasy herps for years , collecting temperatures, humidity levels, UV strenght , etc... on a yearly basis , all over Madagascar.
    It's a simple fact you don't keep them the same way as leo's , period.

    Their natural habitat covers a wide range so it's a bit subjective to changes amongst the whole population but there are some basic requirements in their care...

    First, they don't need that much heat, being a forrest dwelling ground species.
    Second, they like it more humid than leo's , we spray ours lightly on a daily basis.
    Thirth, breeding females of P. picta will need totaly different food supplementation than leo's to keep them healthy as their calcium levels can decline at an alarming rate.
    Fourth, you don't keep these animals on tile or kitchen paper or sand or who knows what, they need an organic soil that keeps some humidity, topped with leaf litter , foliage for cover and some branches or cork because they also love to climb.
    ...
    I can go on like this for some time but there is enough written abouth this subject here already, some of it by a very well respected biologist who specializes in the Herpetofauna of Madagascar.
    Would you have done some "credible research" yourself you would have found that, it's not as if you don't like digging up these old threads.

    Point is, you should not try to give advice if you have no clue what you are talking abouth, and posting in these old threads can become very confusing to some people.

    And believe me, i'm not concerned abouth you, i'm concerned abouth the animals that might be kept in the wrong sircumstances because their owner has read some very poor advice somewhere that doesn't make any sence.

    Have a good one yourself...
