Humphrey by CatharsisJB Humphrey by CatharsisJB
I have not posted anything in forever :( It is partly because I have been very busy with my reptile hobby! I recently attended NARBC Tinley and picked up this little fellow. He is a helmeted gecko, Gekkonia (Tarentola) chazalia. He has been one of my dream species for a while, and he's quite a bit different from my "normal" crested geckos. He's only about 7 grams in size and will probably not get much bigger!

He lives in a desert-type tank and eats bugs! You can also see him chasing my finger in this video: [link]

He has been named Humphrey because he looks very grumpy all the time!


Please do not re-use my images :) Thanks!

Helmeted Gecko? Interesting their eyes look different than other geckos. Almost as if they can blink...
