    Oh, and i think i just found something

    Quote from The New Zealand Herpetological Society website:
    What do you need to be able to keep lizards and skinks?

    Permits:
    Anyone interested in keeping New Zealand lizards must obtain a permit from their nearest branch of the Department of Conservation. As it is forbidden to collect any animals from the wild, contact will need to be made with someone who already holds geckos and/or skinks, and who has some spare ones to give away. Like all protected NZ native species, geckos and skinks cannot be bought or sold.

    Cages:
    It is usual for their caging arrangement to be inspected by a Department officer before a permit will be issued. It is recommended that any potential keeper of lizards should contact and join the New Zealand Herpetological Society, P.O. Box 6046, New Plymouth where they will be able to obtain advice on building suitable caging and contacting other lizard keepers.

    Food:
    Preferences for food items tend to vary from species to species, and variations will also differ according to physical size of the individual animal. Live moths appear to be a favourite food item for nearly all lizards, with live flies, grubs, crickets, grasshoppers, caterpillars, small spiders, earwigs, small wetas, slaters, and invertebrates such as hoppers finding favour with various species. Many animals will also eat soft berries, nectar from flowers, and honeydew on a seasonal basis. Some skinks are known to eat carrion and varieties that live near colonies of sea birds have been seen to eat remains of partially digested fish, and lap up regurgitated stomach oil from the birds.

    I'm with Sara I don't care how many times I have to talk to the New Zealanders I want one. Just let me know how because I'm not having much luck.

    If the U.S. can get Tutaras then I can get this gecko.

    Excuse my redneck slang but HELLS YA!!! That is possibly the pimpest gecko I've ever seen . And it's mouth is blue!!

    On a serious note I'd love more info on permits and care requirements. Are the permits only given out to potential breeders? I know many times they won't allow restricted species to be "pets".
