    Anyone keeping Leaf Tail Geckos?

    Hey folks, I've been cruising the web for reptile info since finding the anole and if I get the large epiphyte wall unit setup I thought it would be great to get a pair of Uroplatus phantasticus or "Satanic Leaf Tailed Geckos":


    Not my photo obviously but it's cool lookin lizard with an evil smile! They are a montane species from Madagascar only reaching about 5-6 inches long. So they would be great for a large epiphyte terrarium since they don't like it warmer than 80*F and neither did my highland plants (with a drop in temp at night).

    Is anyone here keeping these or other Uroplatus species? The web makes them appear easy if you can provide the cool/humid environment, which I have done in the past for HL Neps.

    I've always wanted one. I think they are so great.

    If you ever breed them, please remember me.

    What a magnificent lizard! I don't keep them but now that I've seen a picture I'll have to add this species to my "Someday when I have the time and the money" list.

    Someone on kingsnake.com (the ebay for terrarium critters) has one juvie male available but I'm not setup and I'd definately want a lady or two to go with him.

    I have a buddy who has one of the larger species. I can talk to him about possible sources and care if you like. As soon as he gets back in the country that is.
