I've got 1 male and 3 females of what I think are Stenodactylus petrii. I bought them when there were just hatched and they do very well. They eat well and are active by daylight when fed. I keep them in a terrarium of 60x30x30 cm, at one end a lamp which privides a temperature of about 30 gr. Celcius, the coolest place is 20 Celcius. At night about 15 Celcius. Substrate is sand, only about 2 cm, otherwise they're never visible. Some flat rocks and bark provide shelter. I feed them only with crickets, always dusted with a Viamine/calcium prep. They do need a lot of calcium, compared to average lizards. No eggs yet, but maybe this year. However I'm not 100% sure whether my animals are S. stenodacthylus or S. petrii. These species look very much alike. Can anyone help me with finding a good book or article for discriminating between the memebers of the genus Stenodactylus?

Thanks, Thijs Roest
