    Hello laddies, got my pair right here







    Now to business, does anyone know do these burrow their eggs? Or just lay them under hides?


    Also anyone else noticed the slightly annoying yet adorable sounds at night the female espicially keeps? First weeks i got them always woke up to it and went to check with flashlight if their fine, there they are laying on top of a coconut hut making weird sounds...

    Very cool little gecko's.
    I bred these for the first time last year and produced 2 hatchlings. Was well happy seeing the hatchlings running about in the bator!!
    Keep them on fairly shallow sand so you can find the eggs quite easily. Some females lay under hides,but others just lay anywhere in the enclosure. When the female is due to lay she'll dig a few holes before finally laying, which is a good signal to look out for eggs.
    Mine are quite vocal around early evening and also at times during the day.....Cool froggy sound!!
    Could'nt resist, here's a pic of one of the hatchlings

    And here's a pic of the two sisters together now they've grown on.

    Very different coloration, extremely interesting!


    How long did you incubate your eggs and in what temperatures?? Ive heard it can take quite long aswell with this species!

    These are the most aggressive feeders ive yet ever had, absolute stunners indeed.


    Glad to know where to hunt the eggs, i dont have a lot of sand so shouldnt be too hard to discover them!

    I could just eat that hatchling up, so adorable

    You're looking at 85 to 90 days at 82f. I incubated them low so i'd get females. You could use a higher temp/shorter incubation but the you'd get males..........Well worth the wait though as all you seem to read is these are difficult to get the incubation right......then difficulties in keeping the hatchlings alive.
    Can't wait till i start getting more eggs this season.

    What did you feed your hatchlings?

    I fed them Turkistan red roaches. I keep a colony of these of which 90% of my geckos feed on them apart from the fussy Geks.

    P.S.: Geckonia is no longer a valid genus
    Tarentola chazaliae is the valid scientific name. Lovely species, too little information is given about their husbandry, feel free to share any details here.

    Hmm, id still like to find a source that states the transfer from either to one of them.

    Also Tarentole genus seems to be rather different from the chazaliae in general, mostly the arboreal part, cant say i know all of them tho.
