Thanks. Did you get her from Stacy, captive bred, or was she imported? I'm thinking of getting a trio to breed and then maybe getting some to sell at an expo. My own lizards aren't going to be hatched out early enough to sell at our only annual expo this year (they moved the date up too early). I don't know how popular they are and how well they might sell. But I think I'd be the only one with them.
:I have a female one and she's great. I can pick her up and she doesn't mind a bit. I give her a varied cage set-up with one area kept dry and another area more humid. She likes to have a few different places to hide and eats very small crickets dusted with calcium twice a week. It's important to have a U.V. light so that she doesn't get metabolic bone disease. It's also good to keep a fresh supply of clean water all the time. Because I have an entire room devoted to terrestrial geckos I don't use heat pads,rocks or lamps. The room is a constant 87 dgrs in the day and 79 dgrs at night. The hiding areas for everyone are about 5 dgrs cooler that the room temp. If you just have one tank set up in a room then I recommend a heat lamp or pad. Hope that this helps.
