    Default My New Babies: Ptychozoon kuhli


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    The 2.1 baby "Flyers" that I have been waiting for all Summer arrived yesterday. So before I even put them in their vivs, I took some photos of them while they were still captive in their deli cups, which was a good idea, as they took off like a shot as each one was introduced to its own space . So here they are, my new l'il ones:

    Male and female. When they're old/large enough, the hope is that they'll mate and produce pretty babies for me .

    Female. Pic not so good, as there was condensation on her deli cup lid.

    This is Kinky, so named because he has a kink in his tail. He will be a treasured pet, and not used for breeding. He arrived upside down in his deli cup. You can tell that you don't need to be an expert to figure out his gender!

    Male, whom I hope will become a mate to the female in time.

    Male #1, the intended future mate of the girl.

    IrishEyes, those are awesome. I thought about getting those for my paludarium, but I already have Mourning geckos in there. I worry that the kuhli would eat the Mournings.
    I hope they do well for you, and I hope you post again.
    Thanks IrishEyes thanked for this post

    I'd worry, too. These babies are already 4 or so inches long--longer than an adult mourning gecko. I can imagine when the flyers grow up, they'd at least try to eat the mourning geckos!

    I presume you have a cover on your paludarium? I have one that is about 1/3 land and 2/3rds water (it holds 65 gallons of water). Do your geckos ever try to go swimming or somesuch? I've always wondered about keeping some sort of lizard or two in mine. I had my 3 firebelly toads in it for years, but eventually removed them, as they kept finding underwater entrances to the back panel!

    Yes, it is covered with screen, and plastic over it to control humidity. I have never seen the geckos swim, but I rarely see them at all. I originally put four of them in there. The only time I see them is at night with a flashlight, usually only one or two at a time. They are eating the crickets and pangea I leave for them, and probably laying eggs, too. I kind of wish I had chosen a larger species, and am interested in flying geckos if the mourning geckos don't work out.
