    I saw these listed for a few minutes in the classifieds and in reading it seems they have recently been classified as a species, anyone know anything about them? Maybe someone from Europe can weigh in, thanks.

    Ok so here is a really bad picture of the male from my 1.2 trio, maybe 1/3rd bigger than Vittatus. I read where they come from humid forest so I set them up in a drier vivarium (stay between 50% and 70% humidity), about 50 gallons with a cork bark back ground and a huge cypress knee in the middle, which he tends to stay on. Both females seem a little more secretive but I have seen one eating a couple of different times. I will get a shot of their full tank soon.

    Hi Mark,

    thank you for your information on your Gonatodes rozei trio and shared picture. To my knowledge your specimens should be originally from Venezuela. I wish you good luck with their breeding even if WC specimens can be sometimes very complicated.

    I think that upper humidity value could work well as well as pretty big size of your terrarium. I usually glue cork plates on all three vertical walls of the tank to provide as much space as possible. I would probably separate both females and rotate the male in their tanks, too.

    Next your pictures would be would be definitely appreciated I assume that at least 6-8 European breeders keeping more Gonatodes species would like to see them.

    Hello Mark, I wonder how your breeding of this nice species went in last two years. There is altogether 14 different Gonatodes species in Europe now but rozei is not among them. Any information would be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Radim

    I sold these to Tim Tytle not long after, I thought they should be in more experienced hands, I did hear the 1.2 turned into 2.1 but never heard a thing after. I have reached out to him a couple of times but never got a response.
