  • It seemed like a good year to try new species

    The year isn't even half over and I've acquired 3 new species, 2 of which have been long time favorites and I can't wait to breed them. I picked up a pair of Yucatan Banded Geckos (coleonyx elegans) from Hamm and a pair of Peacock Day Geckos (Phelsuma quadriocellata quadriocellata) at a local show. Last is a random species from a buddy of mine that I'm already looking to pair up, paroedura stumpffi.

      The stumpy guy is really cool looking! I like the elegans too, they remind me somewhat of cat geckos. The quads are nice, too!

            Elegans are from Mexico and Belize, mitratus are from a little further south in Central America and stay just a little smaller, although both are tropical coleonyx and kept the same way husbandry-wise. I prefer the color and patterns of elegans, they're a lot rarer in this country.
