    Default Crimson day gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I know nothing about day geckos lol. I was in petco the other day and saw what they described as a “crimson day gecko,” and it said they only get 4-6 inches in length. I recently lost my last juvie crested whom which I was in the process of building an enclosure for. I’d like to possibly check out other species of geckos and looked at mourning geckos but they’re prolific breeders and I don’t have the means to sell hatchlings or have the time to deal with that right now. Are these “crimson day geckos” also prolific breeders? Also some photos of enclosures would be appreciated lol.

    I think possibly this is a Giant Day gecko with more crimson markings. Be aware that it is one of the larger day geckos and needs a pretty big enclosure. I have heard that day geckos are a little more tricky to breed (as compared with crested geckos, for example). One reason is that cresties are easier to handle so you can put the male and the female together for awhile and then separate them. It's harder with day geckos. Also, day geckos have more of a reputation of possibly not getting along together. I've experienced that a bit with gold dust day geckos.

    That’s what I thought. I don’t think my 20g High very will be sufficient for it. How are the gold dust? Do they breed like mourning geckos in the sense that they’re A sexual?

    Gold dust day geckos are not parthenogenetic and mate with male and female like most other geckos. It's just a problem to get a pair that will get along together. You're right that your 20 gallon high will not be good for a giant day gecko. I would go for an 18x18x24 or 36 at a minimum.
