Parts of my gecko collection.

Pachydactylus haackei CB pair

Image

Image

Afroedura loveridgei CB trio- I'm the first European to have hatched some juveniles.

Image

Juveniles hatched at home:

Image

Ptenopus kochi, CB, I have 1:1:1 from different bloodlines, probably the only European group of this species.

Image

Image

Image

Pachydactylus sp., new species, from Central Namibia, most likely of the oreophilus clade.

Juvenile:

Image

Adult:

Image

Pachydactylus visseri, I have a CB adult pair and eggs incubating:

Image

Image

Pachydactylus mclachlani, I have a breeding pair and eggs too now:

Image

Juvenile hatched at home:

Image

Homopholis fasciata - I had a pair but sadly lost the male.

Image

Narudasia festiva, CB pair, probably one of the only European pair, if not the only one.

Image

Homopholis wahlbergii, I have a LTC pair

Image

Chondrodactylus turneri CB breeding pair, here is the female. I have seen some WC from 6 euros in Hamm but I preferred to buy this female for 50 and my male for 30 as both are CB. I have had lots of newborns from them.

Image

Well, do I need to write the name of this species? :-D

Image

Pachydactylus caraculicus juveniles, CB

Image

Image

Image

Pachydactylus fasciatus, I have a CB pair which I hope will breed this year:

Image

Image

Last but not least, Pachydactylus maraisi, desribed as a new species in 2011, formerly known as the black coastal form of P. bicolor. I have a pair but the female is still too young to be put with the male.

Outstanding collection of Geckos , the maraisi are stunning.

Your Chondrodactylus angulifer is it of namib origin?

They are angulifer angulifer from a German breeder, so I assume the original bloodline is from SA ;)

I can just imagine the work that goes into feeding them, cleaning etc etc...

That is a awesome collection! Good luck with all the breeding and raising.

Very nice gecko's and enclosures, just out curiosity how do you enclosures open? I can't seem to figure it out. It looks like you slide the front panel up.

That's right for the smaller ones, it helps preventing small and fast species from escaping. For larger species I use either ExoTerra enclosures or more traditional enclosures with sliding doors in front.

Thanks to all for your kind comments, don't hesitate to ask about the husbandry of these geckos :D

Awesome Awesome collection! I'm always happy when I see that you have opened a thread, I know that I am in for a treat then! I love Narudasia festiva, such beautiful animals, had the privilege of seeing them when I was in Namibia. Very beautiful tails, just tiny! What do you feed your smaller geckos?

Pinhead crickets, they are much more nutritious than wingless fruitflies, and occasionally red runner roaches babies (B. lateralis). Thanks for your kind comments ;)
