    Thick Tailed Gecko Heating?

    Hey everyone, I'm going to be getting a Thick Tailed Gecko later on today so I have been reading up on them for the past few days. The only thing I'm still not 100% on is heating, some places will say they require temperatures between 26-30 whilst other places say that they don't need heating. I...

    Thick Tailed Gecko - Please help!

    I'm new to the reptile world - I have a male/female pair of thick tailed geckos (underwoodisaurus milii) in a 60x45x45cm tank. They have never been aggressive towards each other, and I've had them together for about three months. The male has always been the smaller one, but in the past few days...

    Heating Barking Geckos

    I was wondering what the best way to heat some U. Miliis is? We will be housing them in a partitioned URS 45 x 45 enclosure with a mesh top. I am not keen on a heat mat since there seems to be so many issues with them burning up. So I was thinking about using a heat rock partially or fully...

    Good Gecko for beginner

    I'm looking to get a group of about 3 gecko's not really intending to breed them but if it happens it happens. They will be treated more like pets than breeders so the occasional handling will occur. So what is the best type to get? I'd rather they be a large/meduim size and not too expensive...

    Smooth Knob-Tailed Gecko Aggressive

    Hello, I am currently having a problem with my Nephurus Levis Levis. (firstly backstory) When bought from the pet store a few months ago I was advised to refrain from extensive handling as to avoid stressing the gecko, in which I did so. However, the gecko has become aggressive towards me. One...

    Thick tailed

    I've changed my mind and it would be more suitable to get a thick tailed. do you think a 1 foot old aquarium could house 2-3 thick tails? and I live in Melbourne will they need a heat source?

    Is it suitable?

    Well I was going through my mum's kitchen cupboard and found a newish 7L Sistema tub, and wanted to know if it would be a suitable house for a 14cm thick-tailed gecko? I don't need any heat do I, because I've got Harley without any heat and he's doing fine (eating & pooing regular):)
