I have for sad sale an adult trio of Goniurosaurus luii. I was really hoping I could keep hold of these, but sadly I can't :( I am not in the country at the moment, and my mum offered to look after them whilst I was away. However, they have been having problems getting the shed skin off their toes and my mum isn't comfortable or confident doing it herself - so really it's in their best interests to home them to someone who can help them with it, keep an eye on it, and keep on top of it.
They are feeding on dusted silent crickets, but in the past they have eaten cockroaches and mealworms as treats.

The male and first female are approximately 10 years old and proven breeders. The male is a nice chunky boy as far as G. luii go. He's usually the boldest of the three and out and about more often (well, as far as cave geckos go anyway!). The first female has a regrown tail and a wonky back leg - she had both of these things when I bought her in 2006, and neither have caused her problems, apart from the occasional awkward shed around her leg. The second female was introduced to the setup in March 2013. I found some dried, shriveled up eggs in the tank a few months ago when giving it a clean, so at least one of the females produced eggs last summer (they all moved into their new tank in March 2013), but unfortunately I don't know which one.

Because I am not sure of their current breeding status, and because I need them in a good home asap, I'm asking only £100 for the trio :gasp:

I can sell with or without setup.

Their setup is a 90x45x45 exo-terra, fitted with an Arcadia twin T5 controller (1x UV, 1x bulb for plant growth), fake rock background and fully live planted. I am super proud of this setup, but would be willing to part with it if someone wanted to take it with the geckos. Because, let's face it, you don't see the geckos very often so you may as well have a pretty tank to look at :2thumb: £250 for the setup and geckos together. I'll try and get some pics of the current state of growth - that Pothos near the middle now pretty much encircles the tank!

Based in Peterborough, collection only. However, I would be happy to use a specialist reptile courier at the buyers arrangement/expense. Not looking for swaps, for reasons I hope are obvious.
I will only hold with a deposit. Please feel free to PM with any questions - please make sure you have researched how to care for this species before offering to purchase!

Now for some pics:


This is the tank when they first moved in - the plant growth is much more impressive now! That's the male in the middle with his chunky tail.


The male is on the left, the second female is in the centre.


Male in the centre, the first female's head is poking out by the food bowl:


The male and first female at dinnertime a few years ago:


You can see the bulge on her leg - I'm not sure exactly what happened to it before she got to me, but she walks and climbs with no problems.


And some photos my mum took last night:

This is the second female:

Here are some photos of the plant life as it is now - includes pothos, ferns, bamboo, parlour palm, and others I've forgotten!

With lights on:


Lights off, and red LEDs on (forgot about those, can be included!) Marina waterproof LED lights.

I should also say, the T5 controller is the one designed for humid environments, so it has tight seals around the ends of the bulbs.
