As you may know, I have developed the fever for Paroeduras. I love P. pictus (Madagascar group geckos) and all the other species of Paroedura. I had the great opportunity to purchase two additional species from Jerry at The Drosophila Co. this past month (Sept. 2012). Jerry sent me a pair each of Paroedura bastardi (which I have wanted to work with for some time) and Paroedura oviceps, a real surprise to find available.
They came to us in absolutely perfect shape and fed the day after putting them in their new home. Currently, both pairs are housed in a 10 gallon, heavily planted tank with plenty of cork bark for hiding places and for climbing and looking around their new environment. I don't like these setups but for now, they seem to be happy. Feeding comes in mid-sized crickets and the pairs simply devour the insects.
The genus Paroedura is filled with very unique species. Again, I feel very fortunate to be keeping 6 different species currently and you know I am scouring the reptile ads for more :)
