    Lol....mine is a wild caught...so I limited handling until he settled in...all I can say he has got a very strong grip and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to be nipped...he's got some pretty big jaws..

    I love that there are other keepers! I have 1.3 in 3 vivariums and enjoy them a great deal. they're always active, always curious, and ravenous feeders whether bugs or CGD.

    Wow....Copper must be shy...he spends his day in a hollowed out upright log...he is definitely out and about at night. Never saw him tear up crickets but he empties his CGD every night. ( And poops alot). And the crickets do disappear... Ok

    well, the one male tends to be shy. I guess it's the 3 girls that are the extroverts, lol. even though one of the females is a clutchmate to the male I have, they're quite different.

    I'm certainly glad to find another Boivini keeper...there seems to be a few amount. I did go to a reptile show this past weekend and there were 3 there for sale. What I fell in love with was a Leachie....it was the first time I got to see and handle one. That is definitely on my bucket list of additions.

    There was a long period of time where they were not imported. The ones you're seeing now are from recent imports, the last was probably 2011 - 2012 (maybe a little later, but you get the idea).

    If there is any advice that I have to offer, it's use a large enclosure. I keep the females in 2x2x3s and rotate the males so no one is with a male all the time.

    Just found eggs tonight that are showing blood vessels, we'll see how it goes!

    Good wishes for healthy hatchlings! What is the incubation period?

    Awesome....that's the size exclosure mine is in. He seems quite content... although he is still a bit shy.

    Thank you! I've read 90 days, I've read 180, depending on incubation conditions. I hatched a Wahlberg's gecko recently, that took probably 8 months.

    Mine still run, but come back rather quickly. I've also been bit a number of times.

    This is an older pic, I changed out money trees for pothos.
