Advise please! Any advice on "Hemidactylus turcicus" or Turkish/Mediterannean gecko. What are they like to keep, care etc.
Also, does anybody know of breeders in UK? They seem very popular in US, but have not been able to find much reference to them in UK.

I need a pair, possibly breeding and due to the size of the proposed Viv, they need to be keen climbers, and obviously Hemidactylus turcicus is!

Yes, they are really nice. I caught a baby last year on holiday..
I have seen a few ads in classifides for them, but they all seem to be out of date. Someone must have some to breed from. I just need to know where!

As I mentioned, they live wild in US, obviously taken over in cargo sometime long ago, but they are also captive bred as pets and seem quite popular there. I know they are not the prettiest Gecko in the world, but after seeing so many on holidays over the years I have got quite fond of them. They just love a stone wall to climb on, in fact I have never seen them anywhere else, and they would just be perfect for the custom viv I am building.

Will let you know if I find any!
