Life Span: 10-15yrs
Housing: Glass terrariums are the best option for these animals, they will need a tall enclosure for climbing as they are arboreal animals. A good size for adults is 45x45x60cm and for babies a small plastic tub is great. These geckos will need to have lots of vines, foliage and logs in the enclosure to climb and hide inside.
Substrate: As these animals will spend nearly all their time above the floor it doesnt really matter what substrate you use as long as it can hold humidity, so some good options are paper towels, sphagnum moss or coco fibers/eco earth.
Heating: These geckos will need a heat bulb which is placed above their enclosure, they will use this bulb to bask and absorb the heat, you will want the basking spot to be around 23-25c and the cool side 20-23c.
UVB/Lighting: These animals will need a UVB bulb placed along side their heat bulb, this is to prevent MBD. They will also need a natural day/night cycle that requires all lights to be switched off at night.
Humidity: These geckos come from a more humid environment at around 5-70% humidity, to keep this up you need to do daily misting of the enclosure.
Diet and Water: These geckos will not always use a water bowl to drink from and they seem to prefer to lick up the droplets from the misting, so i would suggest you offering a small water bowl along side the misting. In regard to food they are simple to feed, they will eat a main diet of pangea gecko mix which you just add water too and mix, as well as a few live insects, smaller insects such as meal worms and small crickets.
Housing Together: You can keep these animals in communal homes however if you do this you will need to purchase a much bigger enclosure, you should not house two males together as they can become aggressive and territorial, one male and two females can work if monitored closely.
