  1. Default New electric blue geckos :) (Lygodactylus williamsi)

    Just picked up two of these guys today. One is a definite male I got from a reptile shop about 45 mins from my house, the other is a probable female juvenile I bought online. Hoping to breed them once I learn for sure the one is a female and she becomes of age; they're housed separately for now until she gets bigger. Anyway, here they are...


    Hey! I got a box in the mail, wonder what it could be :x


    Seems to be packed pretty well...


    Oooh something in a deli cup

    Here she is in her temporary enclosure. She's lost some of her coloring since I got her, I think she's a little stressed out right now. I just dumped a bunch of pinheads in there along with some crested gecko diet in hopes that she'll eat.

    And, here's the male, named Rocko. This is where they get their name from, the crazy blue coloring (females will normally be green). He does have part of his tail missing, unfortunately. He was surrendered to the pet store I got him from.


    Latest shot of the tank which will be 2 weeks old tomorrow, you can see Rocko up top there behind the screen.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks . The males definitely do get the best responses, and I'll even admit I'm partial to the blue ones, just don't tell the girl I said that . The females do look pretty as well, though. Here's a picture of one I found on google. Mine should look like this as she gets older and isn't so stressed out from being shipped.

    Stunning geckos! Some people might think the female isn't too pretty, but she's alot better than my mourning geckos :P

    Did you get the female from an online store or a private breeder?

    I kept a Leopard Gecko for a few years and then lost her. Geckos can be such wonderful reptiles to keep. Those are stunning geckos there. Good luck and update us on how they're getting on.

    I got her from an online breeder I found through kingsnake.com. Pretty good site for anyone looking for some herps. You can usually find some more rare specimens on there.

    Most of these geckos you'll find in the pet trade are actually wild caught, which is especially why I wanted to buy her since she is captive bred. They are still fairly new, and their lifespan in captivity is pretty much a mystery at this point, although I see a lot of estimates from anywhere between 3 on up to 10 years.

    I hope to help ease the demand for wild caught williamsi by breeding them myself. Not to mention, the extra money to help pay for supplies and getting to experience hatching out your own geckos is always a fun experience. Thankfully, they're not like bearded dragons or iguanas where the market is already saturated and full of animals needing to be adopted; I shouldn't have a problem selling any captive bred babies. I can start taking down names for anyone who would be interested .
