    Default Chondrodactylus turneri question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So from the tiny bit of research I've started, this is more commonly called a Turner's gecko. I did read a care sheet on here about them and it mentioned they can be even easier than leopard geckos to keep. I've currently got 3 leopard geckos and just saw that someone had a Turner's geckos for sale locally (and a few other more rare reptiles, but they were more expensive and difficult to keep). I will soon have a 20 gallon tall fish tank that could be converted to a gecko tank. Would that be big enough for a single Turner's gecko? Is there anything else I should consider before looking into actually getting a Turner's gecko? I did read that they are somewhat similar to a Tokay and not as easily handled as most leos, but that's ok with me.

    Ok, another question about Turner's geckos. I've read on some things that you shouldn't feed them mealworms but other things say you can. If you can't, what's the reasoning behind it and what are my other options besides crickets?

    Looks like I'm getting a Turner's gecko (I'm still trying to sort out the scientific name since some things call it C. turneri and others P. Turneri). I've got a 20 gallon tall tank that will house one male. I keep reading that sand makes a good substrate but I know it's not good for Leos so I'm not sure if I should use it or not. I'm also finding conflicting info about feeding them, so any advice is welcome.
