House Gecko

How wide are adult house geckos? I keep getting lengths and no good pictures giving me any idea on their adult size.

Re: House Gecko

I'm not sure how CBB geckos would grow but I don't remember seeing a wild one much bigger around than a large pinky mouse.

Re: House Gecko

Are you using them for feeders and if so curious what you're paying?

Re: House Gecko

Yes they would be feeders. I paid about 80 for 12 of them with shipping. But you can get bulk for much cheaper. I'm just not sure my girl is going to eat them so I went for a lower quantity. They are pretty small and family that accepted the shipment for me while I was at work already lost one of them...

So far my snake has shown no interest in it. Going to try scenting it tomorrow with the Skink I have left and see if that works.

Re: House Gecko

Gotcha, so they are taking skinks but not geckos or anoles? I don't know what he charges for skinks but you can try Eric Chung Reptiles and see if he can send some.

Re: House Gecko

Depends on the species of house gecko. mediterranean get about 5 inches in length and indo pacific get about 6 inches, the common house gecko gets about 150 mm.

Re: House Gecko

You can get 10 for $45 shipping included from lllreptiles but if they don't have house geckos they will send you anoles which are not nearly so easy to continue to breed so if you had to try it twice you'd be past $80. I was pricing them at various sites since the cheap anole experiment mostly went well. I'm leaning now more toward just dropping the money on some local pickup crested geckos and being able to sell the offspring for something though. I don't have that many snakes to feed them to and none that can't live on rodents. It's tempting though to hatch so many eggs. It takes so much longer than chickens though and even longer than quail. Those were addicting to incubate.

Re: House Gecko

Doesn't matter anymore she doesn't eat house geckos or anoles. Refuses both of them. Now I get to spend about $130 for 15 skinks....snakes lucky she's cute. Debating keeping a group of 1.3 skinks to try and breed them. She accepted one of the frozen skinks so freezing them is an option if she accepts more of them frozen. So far it's just been the one.
