Hey guys it's me again.. You still remember my drunken snake dealer? The one who brought a bag of vipers, literally? Well lucky for me he hasn't forgotten about me during my 4-month absence.

He had a deal someplace nearby so he decided to drop-by my new petplace and give me a welcome home gift, 2 pairs of a first generation captive-bred Bow-fingered gecko, Cyrtodactylus mamanwa.




At first I wasn't really impressed by them or the fact that they look like my normal house geckos, but a week later they've already won my heart. I only kept a pair since I wasn't really confident about my Gecko Mastery just yet and the other pair I shipped off to a friend in Croydon somewhere in England.

Hydrating in warm water, a little coconut juice & a little honey..




Inside their quarantine enclosure. First day, first dinner (female had obvious unshed skin left -__-)




What my pair looks like a week after they first arrived. Showing off their normal male/female coloration. I can't believe they were doing a courtship chase on my hand while I'm taking pictures. Guess they don't mind doing it in public -__-




Stunning male coloration.. Nuff said..




Start your weekend right! :)

Wow they look awesome! Are they as docile as something like leopard geckos?

Yeah they love perching on thin/narrow things :D
They don't have the sticky pads house geckos do, so their little claws kinda tickle when they move.

That's fun thing i love about them. You can easily pick them up and they even move unless budged. When they run, they're like leopard geckos, steady but kinda slow so an escape is virtually impossible for these guys on foot haha

Dear lord, i heard them make a sound for the first time. Nothing like any tokay or house gecko sound I've heard -__-

What sound did they make? Like a leopard gecko squel?

The male makes two kinds of sound. One is like a kid's marbles bumping but faint and the second one was like a low, hammering sound that lasted for about 4 or 5 seconds, i think -__-
