    Yes, and they'll tackle anything that moves-very easy feeders.

    I might just have to keep an eye out for some of these guys now.
    The mourning geckos I bought from you are highly entertaining. When they were first settling in there was so much clicking. I don't handle them because they are so tiny and so fast.. but I can't believe how soft the skin is. They absolutely destroy GCD, too.

    So anyway, not to get side tracked. They sound similar in behavior. Are these P. geckos strictly insectivores?

    I used to have that same apprehension about tiny prey items but now that I culture my own fruit flies, springtails, bean beetles, etc I never worry about feeding even the smallest of geckos. In fact, it adds an extra layer of enjoyment for me maintaining my own self-sustaining populations of small inverts to feed the little ones. I've got nothing against the bigger guys, but the ability to keep the smaller species in less space and without any feeding costs beyond the initial investment in a few feeder cultures definitely appeals to me, especially since some of these species have such big personalities. I'm definitely hooked and have added a few other pint-sized species to my "wanted" list as a result of my experimentation with these and Pachydactylus.

    I've always been a fan of this species as well. I think what scares many people off from these and other smaller gecko species is the dauntingly small size of the babies. It can be tough to find food items small enough for hatchlings, and they have so little body mass that they can go downhill very quickly if they don't feed regularly.

    Ive heard a lot of the paredura species will breed and breed and breed till there's nothing really left of the female, whats your schedule looking like for the trio? and they do have pads correct? an enclosed terrarium is requiredd?
    I'm keeping an eye on them and will separate the females if they deteriorate, but I'm hoping they don't have that type of output that will run them down quickly. They do have small toe pads and can climb.

    Very cool, thanks for sharing the video. My guess is they are not popular because they don't sell themselves in a picture or even in a deli cup. They're small and brown. It's not until you see them in action and you talk about them that they get interesting. They have to be "sold".

    I got mine from an importer a while back since they seem to be very seasonal in availability. I haven't noticed them offered very recently, but you may want to keep your eye on the different gecko classifieds (or wait about a month for mine ) Care is simple-I have my trio together in a small rubbermaid tub on coco fiber with slabs of bark for hiding/climbing and a dish of calcium for the females. One end of the tub sits on a heat pad and they eat whenever food is offered and that's about it.

    Very nice additions Kevin!

    We have the P picta and they resemble these guys but i think yours have the lamalee on the feet correct? Whats a typical life span of these guys? How many babies does each female produce per season?

    I can ask questions all day :P..... Shipping avialable.
