  • New Caledonian VS Halmahera

    Me and my boyfriend are thinking about expanding out little family, and were looking into a bigger addition. We had looked as Chahoua's as well, but these big boys really caught our eye. I have seen them and looked both of them up, I understand the HUGE price difference is a lot to do with wild caught and temperament. But I wanted to get an opinion as to the pros and cons of the Leachie VS the Halmahera.

    Thanks guys!
    Any insight will help!

      We were thinking about either the New Caledonian or the Halmahera. We just wanted to know if there was any difference in temperament, housing, feeding, anything along those lines that would help us make a better decision.

        In general the halmahera are not as tame as the New Caledonia species in general, they are more flighty, and have very delicate skin that can tear easily. It isn't to say they won't tame down some, but if you're looking at it from a handability point of view, going with a New Caledonia species is the direction you will want to go with. Their care is essentially the same, however being a larger species, they need a larger enclosure than a crested gecko.

          Halmahera = 75$... Leachie = 4/800$

            however, I just want to add in here if you can get a captive bred halmahera they can be absolute sweet hearts. I recently got one and she is completely tame and will come out to greet you and beg for food when you come into the room. I have handled her several times no problem, with her even coming out on her own onto my arm. They are not easy to find as a captive bred however so I would go with a leachie if you can't find a captive bred. Care wise they are very similar.

              Oh wow I did not know about the handling with such soft skin. So they are somewhat like day geckos in that aspect? Yeah I was thinking about converting an extra 40 gallon and inverting it. (for when its an adult obviously) I have so many tanks just not being used so in due time. Also! That is awesome where did you get your adult?? I would love getting an adult, as long as they were tamed properly and well cared for.
