That's too bad that yours bites. I'd heard it general that they were pretty docile. Was yours imported or captive bred? Do you pick him up from underneath or from above? Try from underneath. Lizards feel less stressed that way. From above makes them feel like prey.

:I got one about 3 weeks ago. Its hard finding info on them. Mine does not like handling at all, he bites if you get your hand even close to him, I'm attempting to tame him a bit by putting my hand in the tank a few times a day. I feed him small meal worms, he eats about 4 or 5 per feeding.

::Does anyone have helmeted geckos? If so please tell me about them and how much you handle them, what type of setup you have for them,whether you can keep males together, whether you have bred them successfull, anything else of interest. Thanks
