    I am a new member to these forums and thought it might be a good idea to share some photos of the geckos I keep. This is one of my female Uroplatus sp. nov. aff. ebenaui.

    Yes, it most certainly is. She made a nice addition to the pair I already had.

    Do you have any pics of your setup? They must look so cool all camouflaged...

    This is the only picture I have of their cage. It has been changed a little bit since I got them. There is now Ficus Benjamina and the pothos is starting to really take over.

    And here are some more shots of my male.

    You can see how they can somewhat change color to a degree.

    Oh beautiful! I love their eyes :) How do you find their temperament? Do you have all three in that enclosure?

    Their temperament towards one another is fine, but not so great towards crickets. Yes, all three currently share that enclosure.

    Love them! Temperament towards each other is always good but I was actually wondering about their temperament towards being handled/having your hands in the viv, etc. :) Thanks!

    I don't handle them. They are a very small fragile gecko. Even when I photograph them I don't touch them with my hands, I coax them out using a twig or two. I could probably fit all three of them in the palm of my hand. They just chill when my hands are in the vivarium, or they simply move to another stick to sleep. They aren't aggressive.

    I knew they were small but I didn't realize that small! Always a good thing when they don't bum-rush your hand when you go in to clean the tank like my old tokay did... lol. Well they look amazing :)

    Even if they did try to bite, I would be more afraid of the stress on the animal than the bite itself. They are definitely one of my favorite species.
