Here are some pictures to show the difference between Eurydactylodes agricolae and Eurydactylodes vieillardi.
They look a lot alike, but there are minor differences.


On the right: E. agricolae
On the left: E. vieillardi



On the top: E. vieillardi
At the bottom: E. agricolae



Left: E. agricolae
Right: E. vieillardi.
As you can see with both animals the mouth has a slit all the way up to the ear, but with E. vieillardi there is a skin fold covering the slit.



Left: E. agricolae
Right: E. vieillardi.
The scales on the head/nose of the E. vieillardi are bigger and not as "messy" as with E. agricolae.

Lovely pics : victory: and very informative showing the differences (plus it is making me want to get one even more)!

Great to see the contrast of these Debbie. Have to say if I was getting one, it would have to be the vieillardi. They seem to have more definition to their scaling.

Thank you for posting this Debbie; it's really informative. Problem is, it's now made me want to get both species, just so that I can do a comparison of my own...:whistling2:

Great pics Debbie - stunning geckos! We did some comparison photographs last week of ours as well :lol2: I personally prefer the vieillardi, ours seem to have more of a personality than the agricolae and I love their big scales :) I cant wait to see what the babies look like, we have 2 clutches of vieillardi eggs cooking at the moment and I can't imagine how tiny they are going to be :gasp:
