Three to Get Ready: Hemidactylus

The publication last month of a “Three to Get Ready” focusing on viper geckos, Hemidactylus imbricatus, sparked a desire from one reader for us to do an article focusing on the entire Hemidactylus genus. Your wish is our command! Hemidactylus is a genus of over 90 species, many of which go by the common name “house gecko” because of their ability to flourish in human occupied space, and, as you’ll read below, new species are being discovered all the time.

Review of Gargoyle Geckos by P. de Vosjoli et. al.

One of the classic books about Rhacodactylus geckos was published in 2003 by Philippe de Vosjoli, Allen Repashy and Frank Fast. It quickly sold out and was soon outdated because of the wealth of new discoveries about the geckos of this genus. The authors decided to write a new guide in several volumes, each volume dedicated to a different Rhacodactylus species.

Calling all USA L. williamsi Breeders

It’s a well known fact that Lagodactylus williamsi, commonly known as the electric blue day gecko is a highly endangered species due to shrinking habitat in its native Tanzania. In addition to the brilliant blue coloring of the dominant male and the engaging behavior of these geckos, many reptile keepers are eager to breed them in order to establish a reasonably sized, genetically diverse population of L. williamsi in captivity in order to preserve this lovely gecko.

Three to Get Ready: Viper Geckos

Viper geckos, the tiny natives of Pakistan with the black and white ladder pattern, have become increasingly popular recently. They are relatively easy to keep and, because of their small size, don’t require much space. They were originally in the genus Teratolepis, which was later merged with Hemidactylus

Comments for Wild Type or Designer, and a Final Note

The Prose and Controversies article last month about breeding wild type vs. “designer” geckos generated just two comments, which are reproduced below. The Prose and Controversies feature was begun nearly a year ago in the hopes that it would generate comment and discussion about husbandry and ethical controversies that are already known to exist in the gecko-keeping world.

Three to get Ready: Rhacodactylus

Rhacodactylus geckos have taken a real hit in the past year. Stripped of the Crested and Sarasinorum Geckos (who are now in the genus Correlophus) as well as the Chahouha (now considered to be part of the Mniarogekko genus), what remains are the R. leachianus (discussed in the August 2012 installment of Three to Get Ready), R. auriculatus and R. trachycephalus.

Breeding Feeders in Situ

For many of us, the bugs and worms we use to feed our geckos can be considered to be almost like a second “business” what with purchasing them, housing and feeding them, and trying to keep them from escaping during the transfer from their own habitat to the geckos’. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just produce our feeders right in the geckos’ cages?
