I would like to ask for everyone who answers this, to give full details instead of leaving out information. If you are not sure of something, do not partake until you are 100% sure, this way we will be able to keep information 100% accurate.



Based on some of the more recent threads here, I feel there is a great need for collecting some data on the genus Lygodactylus. So I developed some questions for anyone interested in the data collection to answer.

I would like to strongly encourage all Lygodactylus owners to partake in this questionnaire.

First and foremost, please list what Country you are in!

For each Lygodactylus species you own, please list the following:

Latin name?:
Amount you keep? (ie; 1,1 - 1,X - do not include offspring in these numbers):
Approx Age of the animal(s)?:
Are they Captive Bred or Wild Caught Specimens?:
If wild caught specimens have you replaced any of them?:
Is this your first time working with this species?:
How many years have you been keeping this species?:
Are your animals currently breeding?:
Do you have any offspring from this species?:
Please list the amount of offspring you have?:
Have you lost any adults or offspring?:
If yes do you know the cause for death?:
Where did you purchase your animal(s)?:
