Just starting to get into keeping. Have always had an interest, the other Id thread on on Delma tincta reminded me where my interest started. Figured I'd throw a few pics up, I know there's other people on here with them so feel free to add your pics if you feel so inclined .
These are apparently the only pics that want to work - so this is all you get
Hatchling clutch pair of Pygopus schraderi:
I like animals with a bit of personality, and while these aren't on the same level as small monitors etc, they are pretty cool little critters. They all take food from my fingers and tweezers, the young ones even wag their tails in the same highspeed vibrating way that knobtails do when they are about to pounce.

Are their lateral vent scales any different at this age/size as to where they get part of their name from?

He looks like a real stunner! You're very lucky to have them.

He's a nice little bloke.
Baden, they definately have 'flaps', but you only really notice them when they are trying to steady themselves/exerting themselves, like trying to climb against something with their body too rigid or when you pick them up they sometimes push them out. Still very, very small at this stage though.Take it or leave it.

Sorry Scotty totally missed the second part of your post in my rush to amend my first post. They are pretty easy to keep, this species is not really any different from smooth knob tailed geckos husbandry wise. The older bloke is in one end of a 4ft fishtank with a few cm of washed sand on the bottom, a couple of different types of hides (upturned ceremic saucers, gecko hides, etc) and a bunch of different rocks and stuff for him to explore around. He will happily come shooting out and chase my hand around the tank for a cricket, spends a lot of time with his head and a few inches of body out of his hide watching me move around the house as the tank is in the loungeroom. They juvies are just in a small tub at the moment with a few hides and sand, big enough for room but small enough that they can hunt and catch their food if I don't have time to hand feed them on any particular night.
Money well spent SmithersTake it or leave it.
