  • Phelsuma, Phelusma, and... more Phelsuma!

    I was super stoked that Vicki from BFG had lots of Phelsuma at the Tampa Repticon yesterday! I was a few minutes too late to snag any of her adult P. standingi, but did manage to score two lovely subadults that Vicki thinks are already a bonded pair, a gorgeous Crimson x High Red Florida W/C adult female P. m. grandis, and two P. m. grandis hatchlings from the same cross.

    The grandis female is still showing stress colors and completely in hiding, but everyone else has been out and about and seem to be adjusting quite well, so I snapped a few pics:

    First off, the two hatchlings- Tikan and Tikel

    Here's their QT enclosures


    Tikan


    Tikel


    Next the two P. standingi, Maeva and Mirov. I can't tell them apart just yet lol

    Nice new additions! I love the standingi; very pretty.
    Currently keeping Correlophus ciliatus, Pantherophis guttatus, Trachemys scripta elegans, and Hemitheconyx caudicinctus.
    I have also kept Phelsuma klemmeri, Eublepharis macularius, Rhacodactylus auriculatus, and Lampropeltis getula californiae.

      I really love your setups, they're simple but very Phelsuma-friendly! Very cool enclosures, and congrats on the new pickups!

        Very nice indeed! You and Tony have really gotten me interested in the Phelsuma & I can't wait to get my 2 from him.

          Great pickups Laura Lee! I'm going to need to find thin bamboo like you have.

          Also, really digging those standingi! I've been contemplating them, but still on the fence.

            Thanks!!

            Vicki had GREAT deals on her Phelsuma, she was liquidating hers b/c she's out of space inside her house but was needing to bring them all in due to the cooler weather. She said she may have one more adult Standingi pair she'll sell me if she can re-capture the female (it's currently loose in her greenhouse lol).

                We got a bundle of 30 thin bamboo branches about 3' long for $8 at Target about 2 months ago.

                    Adria is sooooo gorgeous; just love those facial markings! Now I am super excited to get my 2 babies from Tony.

                      Cleaned the enclosures today so took the (rare) opportunity to snag a photo when poop isn't streaked down all the front doors (WHY is that the favorite potty spot for all my Grandis? )



                      I also stole an idea off of Geckos Unlimited and made some of my own bamboo feeding ledges for Tikan and Tikel (the Grandis hatchlings)

                        Very nice, gives me ideas for setting up my grandis tanks. Going potty down the front doors are better than down the back wall where it's harder to reach for cleaning.

                          Nice setups Lauralee, what bulbs do you have in your fixtures?

                            I'm running 40 watt Halogens for heat lamps and 14 watt (60w equivalent) 5000k "bright white" spiral CFs in the front. I'll probably eventually switch these out for some strip T5HOs mounted on the undersides of the top shelves (to save on space and not have quite so many cords to manage...)

                              How do you attach the suction cups to the bamboo?
