just showing off Mardi Gras (L. williamsi)

The next 2 pictures are of what it looks like now that I tweaked it. I found he was hanging upside down on the screen a lot with the old set-up. I'm hoping he likes the horizontal branches a lot more. There are 2 orchid pups and a clump of air plant in there with him. The plants were really just an experiment to see if I could bring them back to life and have them thrive, they really seem to like the viv environment.
It was quite tricky switching over the viv without losing the lizard, but I couldn't capture him. He stayed in 1 corner while I quickly opened and closed the front door and the lid to pull things out and put other things in.
And now for Mr. Mardi Gras himself:

Nice little guy. My williamsi did get away after the tank renovation. I found him a few hours later on the window pane.

Thanks. I'm glad you were able to find him. My reptile room is quite the hazard... actually, my whole house is. When I transfer him over to the bigger space, I will just place the tiny terrarium in there and let him crawl out on his own. I don't think I'd find him easily if he ever got out. We live in an older house in FL. Larger geckos than him get in and out all the time through cracks around windows and doors, so he could easily disappear into the wilderness.6.4.7 Rhacodactylus ciliatus, 0.1 Rhacodactylus auriculatus, 2.4 Pareodura picta, 0.1 Gehyra marginata, 0.2 Gekko gekko, 1.0 Lygodactylus williamsi

Fish nets are very useful for transferring these guys or catching them if they escape.

I stop feeding for 2-3 days. The get some FruitFlies in a 32oz DeliCup. I hold it infront of them and they usually go rite in and with a slow steady move just place the lid on the cup. Take him out, work on the tank and then put them back in.
I didn't get the actual capture on video because i needed both hands, But this is a video of the aftermath.
