      Hemidactylus turcicus

      (Mediterranean House Gecko)

      Hi, all!

      Thought I would share some pics of my Hemidactylus
      turcicus (Mediterranean House Gecko). I found it while cleaning out
      my storage unit. She likes small crickets, and
      just this morning I got to see her drink a few waterdrops.
      I have learned that if I sit very still, she will go about exploring her KK.

      These are such cool little geckos! There are tons of them here when it is warm out. Just this past summer we were doing some work on a shed and found 6 eggs. I hatched them out and released them. If I could figure out how to keep them in captivity I would get a little colony of them going. You have a very pretty one. Do you plan on keeping or releasing? If you keep him or her you have to keep me updated!

      Relax! Take it easy. This is not an instantaneous hobby. It's a long term "getting to know you" sort of thing. There's plenty of time, perhaps a whole lifetime, to enjoy these phenomenal creatures. Patience. One step at a time. One day at a time. No worries. -Stan Schultz

      Thanks, everyone!

      FaaFaa, they are easy to keep as juvies/adults. I never hatched any out to raise. I actually don't see these very often, even tho there is always one roaming my house. That one is excellent at hiding!

      These little things must have a hard bite. If she isn't hungry, she will kill a cricket by snapping its head.

      So I have learned a lesson already: feed one small cricket at a time. I am breeding flesh flies at the moment, so I will see if she likes those later.
