    My pair of Cyrtodactylus mamanwa is doing very good than what I would've imagined. Here they are looking sexually dimorphic as ever. Female (right) Male (left)

    After 3 months, they are feeding well on crickets. Still no luck with them eating mealies or superworms though. Still working on that.

    Hopefully the female is ovulating now.

    I ordered a whole new batch (of 7 individuals, talk about hoarding lol) hope they arrive by the end of this month or by early Feb.

    Very nice.
     
    Were they fed crickets from whoever bred them or at LFS from a very early age?
    If so, that probably makes it harder for them to identify mealies and worms as food, persistence is key here but good luck with that.
     
    7 new individuals :eek:
     
    Hope you got room for all these guys :lol:

    Not even. My dealer said it prefers roaches. I tried lats and dubias but it prefers dubias more. Bad for me since i don't have a colony anymore (but i do have a new colony just now just needs time) and dubia colonies cost more here than the price of the lizards themselves haha!
