    Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer hatchling

    Folks, I found my first neonate South African Ground Gecko (Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer) in my incubator this morning. Mine looks like the standard variety --nothing near as unusual or neat as Chris' neonate posted earlier. It hatched after 49 days at 82F. Can these be sexed this...

    Foot Structure in Cat Geckos (Aeluroscalabotes felinus)

    Has anyone on the forum here noticed the unique foot structure of their cat geckos? I think the second and third digits are shorter than the remainder. Is this a modification for climbing thin branches? Regards, Dave

    What Phelsuma Species has Produced the Most Young in Your Collection?

    I'd like to know what Phelsuma species has produced the most young in your collections, and how many? To throw it out there, I have a four year old Gold Dust Day Gecko (I call'm Toad) which has produced 29 young for me from three different females so far. I'm sure many of you have done better...

    Seychelles Day Gecko (Phelsuma sundbergi ladiguensis) New Hatchling

    Hi, I came home from work today and found this character in my incubator. It is the third hatchling produced this year from my incredibly incompatible pair of Ladigue Island Day Geckos (Phelsuma sundbergi ladiguensis). I guess like people they don't necessarily have to get along to have a...

    Phelsuma nigristriata hatchlings

    Hi, Hi, I just purchased a couple of Phelsuma nigristriata hatchlings a few days ago. They come from the Comoro islands and are really unique. They are very alert, and eat well for such a tiny gecko. I've seen pictures of adults in books, and my two neonates seem to lack the red spotting on...

    TSD (Temperature Sex Determination) Cut Offs for Aeluroscalabotes felinus

    Hi, About four months ago, I found two neonate Cat Geckos (Aeluroscalabotes felinus) in my vivarium with my adult pair. I didn't notice that my female was pregnant (she packs herself tightly into the leaf sheaths of the bromeliads). Both my juvies look male to me, and are much lighter than...

    First Giant Ground Gecko (Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer) Egg

    Hi, I looked in my Giant Ground Gecko (Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer) cages after work today and found my first egg from them! The egg was laid on the sand and had a bit of sand stuck to it, but for all intents and purposes it looks o.k. The egg is remarkably large for the lizard. I...

    Big, Bad and Mellow?(Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer)

    Hi, Here are some photographs of one of my Giant Ground Gecko (Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer) pairs. These two are quite handleable. The female is the red phase, and the male the yellow. I have another, younger pair that are too fast to hold properly, and man can they bite! When I...

    Phelsuma sundbergi ladiguensis gets a break

    Folks, I separated my two Ladigue Island Sundbergi Day Geckos, and moved the female into the new vivarium. Here are some pics of her in situ. She has already begun to shed and repair her skin tears. I am amazed that Phelsuma regenerate their skin so readily. I think it's strange that...

    Vivarium Design for Phelsuma

    Folks, Over the last week my Phelsuma sundbergi ladiguensis pair haven't been getting along. I've gotten five eggs from them so far this year, two of which have already hatched. The male is getting really zealous in his overtures towards the female. What started out as little nips here and...

    Phelsuma v-nigra pasteuri Pictures

    Hi, Here is a picture of the pair of Phelsuma v-nigra pasteuri geckos that I purchased at the Pamona, CA show this last weekend. The male is the larger, darker animal in the photos. While removing the screen from the quarantine cage I have him in to take photos, he made a run for it and...

    Hi, Here is a photo of one of the Abbott's Day Geckos (Phelsuma abbotti checkei) that I purchased at the Pamona, CA show this last weekend. It is in it's night colors (I had the lights out in the reptile room when I took the quarantine cage out to photo the animal). One of my day gecko books...

    Phelsuma madagascariensis grandis Egg Laying Pics

    Hi, I came home from work today and discovered my female patternless Phelsuma madagascariensis grandis in the process of laying eggs. Sorry the pics are a little dark, but I was afraid to use the flash and disturb her in the act. You can see how they grip the eggs with the back legs and let...

    Pachydactylus (Chondrodactylus) Angulifer D3 / Calcium Supplementation?

    Hi, I have a couple of pairs of Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer at home and have been dusting crickets with a vitamin D3 / calcium supplement. In some husbandry articles I recently read for the species, the authors commented on having placed dishes of calcium supplement in the tanks for...

    Frugivory in Uroplatus?

    Hi, The other day, I was watching my Uroplatus lineatus licking up sap from some begonias I have in their vivaria. When I water the plants heavily, they weep a clear sap from the joints. I have never fed my Uroplatus fruit puree before, but I was wondering if this might be a food they take...

    Prepared Foods for Day Geckos

    Hi, Has anyone had any experience using the Repashy Crested Gecko Diet as a substitute for fruit puree / baby food in feeding their Phelsuma? Right now I am mixing the two for my Phelsuma. I seem to have fewer phorid & fruit flies on the Repashy Crested Gecko food that I leave out for my...

    Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda laticauda) Hatchling Pictures

    Hi, Here are a couple of pictures of my Gold Dust Day Gecko neonates that hatched this week. They are the nominate form. They are very tough to get photos of due to their speed and they are very, very tiny. It's hard to believe that when they reach adult size they will be fiesty and...

    Hi, Here is a picture of my first set of Seychelles Day Gecko hatchlings. These are the Ladigue Island subspecies. They were hatched this week. They hatched out with the parent's night time coloration and are just starting to turn bright green. I have three more eggs of this type in the...

    Giant Day Gecko (Phelsuma madagascariensis grandis) hatchling pics

    Hi, I just hatched two Giant Day Geckos this last week. I love the red coloring on the underside of the tails and the red striping. I also hatched out a couple of Phelsuma sundbergi ladiguensis and a handful of nominate gold dust day geckos. I'll try and take some pics of the latter two...

    P. madagascariensis grandis Pattern Question

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have a female Phelsuma madagascariensis grandis that is bright green and has the red canthal bar markings like the male, but lacks any semblance of spotting. You could say she is patternless. All of the neonates she has produced have had red spotting in the...
