    Default Lygodactylus Picturatus

    I have one male. What a pleasure to own this little guy! I have had him since about January. He is very active during the day, and it is interesting to watch him change color. Sometimes he is blue and yellow, sometimes almost a solid brown. I have yet to get a good picture of him.

    I recently bought a simple magnetic feeding ledge and offered him some Pangea Apricot/banana food for crested geckos. I did not expect it would be touched, but about half of it was eaten at the end of the day!

    I am so happy that this guy has another alternate source of food! I put a capfull on the floor of the cage once before and it wasn't touched. Perhaps that was a different flavor of food, I am not sure.

    I hope to be able to get a couple of females, eventually.

    I now have four of these little guys. One male and three females I am hoping for some eggs eventually!

    I hope you have good luck with them. A friend of mine had some limited success with this species several years back.

    I would like to update this thread because I still have my male and added a female. She has laid a lot of eggs, and some of them hatch but I have never been able to keep the babies alive. They are very tiny and I don't think they eat the commercial mix that the adults do. I mist the terrarium everyday, and the adults are obviously eating and doing well. If I offer small crickets, they don't seem to eat any of them, the crickets just get large. Any tips on raising these very small baby geckos? Perhaps fruit flies?
