    Default Gold headed gecko questions


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I'm looking to possibly get another gecko and found one that is only labeled gold headed gecko. I'm not sure exactly which species it is but from the research I've been doing, I'm somewhat sure it's some type of lygodactylus. It eased small, around 2 inches, and a tan color. It was mostly hiding so I couldn't get a better look or picture. I'm in the US if that makes a difference and it's for sale at a local petstore.

    Do you think it would be ok in a 15 gallon tank, that's my only empty tank right now. Any general or specific info on housing, temp, humidity, food, etc would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm going to hazard a guess that it's Gonatodes albogularis, and it sounds like a female (males aren't usually tan, and their heads are yellow/orange). A 15G tank should work fine. A lot of them have been imported this year.

    Might be. I'll see if I can get a better look at it today or tomorrow. I don't think it was that spotty though.

    Haven't had a chance to go see it again, but if I'm remembering correctly, it looks more like this...Screenshot_20180717-172217_Chrome.jpg
