Introducing the Leachie Gecko aka New Caledonian Giant Gecko

We are super excited to introduce one of our newest arrivals: the New Caledonian Giant Gecko aka Leachie Gecko.  This particular subspecies (Rhacodactylus leachianus henkeli) is the second largest gecko in the world!  They're 9-12 inches full grown and live up to 20 years.

They originate from Pine Island in New Caledonia.  In the wild they live in tree hollows so it's important to provide them with good hiding places, like round cork bark.

Daytime temperature should be high 70s to low 80s and can drop into the low 70s during the night.  These geckos are nocturnal so its best to feed them at night.  We provide a daily portion of Pangea gecko food and crickets or roaches dusting with calcium with D3 twice per week.  Humidity should be kept between 50 and 75 percent. 

They are successfully bred in captivity but since they are monogamous and have only two to three clutches per year (each clutch consisting of only two eggs), they can be difficult to acquire.
