I have resisted the temptation to get into Rhacodactylus geckos due to space issues – until now. I’ve coveted the huge Rhacodactylus leachianus for a long time. At the Herp World Expo in Pasadena, I held an adult at Philippe De Vosjoli’s table and was hooked! I came home with a book so I could learn more about these geckos and give the idea of getting one some serious thought.
At the Reptile Super Show in January, I was ready and planned to bring home a leachie! I had an extremely hard time choosing, but finally settled on this little guy (we don’t really know if it is male or female yet). Unfortunately, his label was lost at some point, so Philippe could not tell me about his background, but I really liked the pattern with the pink bars on this guy.
No more new species for a while now – really!
