These are very sugary and should NOT take the place of CGD. Like re home them or something? Small geckos=small poop, so it's much harder to clean up after them. Color/Pattern: Yellow-bellied mourning geckos differ from other mourning geckos in two ways: first, they have a yellow belly (compared the usual cream- or white-colored belly); and second, they have a dispersed black pigment across their back (compared to the semi-regular patterning and higher pigment found in regular and Hawaiian mourning geckos). Hemidactylus flaviviridis (Yellow Bellied House Gecko) is a species of Squamata in the family geckos.It is found in the Afrotropics, the Indo-Malayan Realm, and the Palearctic.Individuals can grow to 17.39 g. Yellow Bellied House Gecko has sexual reproduction.Reproduction is dioecious.Yellow Bellied House Gecko relies on running to move around. This is one of my favorite aspects of mourning gecko care: they don't require any special heating or lighting! Because mournings are from tropical regions, they need higher humidity. Checking for eggs is relatively easy, you'll see white spots start to develope on the stomach. Like mentioned in the feeding portion of this guide, you can offer Pangea growth and breeding formula if you see eggs start to form. There are other issues, but these are by far what I've seen the most. Mourning geckos are neither diurnal, nocturnal, or crepuscular. They should start immediately eating CGD, and they'll need to eat smaller insects more frequently than the adults. You can keep them on paper towels or move them to a loose substrate (whichever you prefer). Substrate isn't that important to mourning geckos as they're mainly arboreal. They look very similar to the Pacific locale with only a few differences in pattern. They should not be taken lightly!!! They reach sexual maturity at around 8-10 months of age. Appropriately sized tubs can also be used, but here are some pros and cons I have experienced: •Humidity is easy to maintain and it will require less misting. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. Josh's Frogs has been shipping frogs since 2004 and has shipped thousands of animals safely. They don't fly, but they do jump so they'll be fun for your gecko to hunt. As with all reptiles, they should be quarantined on paper towels for the first six weeks (regardless of where you got them) to ensure that they're completely healthy. Mourning geckos are perhaps the most popular species of gecko their size. There are other dusting techniques/schedules, but this is what I find easiest. Omf I spent 2 days proofreading and I miss ONE WORD. Due to their small size, mournings don't need large enclosures. I found a Yellow-bellied House Gecko Hemidactylus flaviviridis in the garden of our house last night. Again, be careful as it'll be hard to catch a tiny gecko that's darting quickly into a hard to reach area! Mournings should have access to CGD 24/7. There isn't really any worry of mourning geckos gaining too much weight, they seem to be pretty good at self regulating. This means that they're irregularly up during the day AND night. Chondrodactylus bibronii. Yellow Bellied. A good feeding plan for this formula is every other feeding-every two feedings. •Worms: Worms such as small mealworms, waxworms, black soldier fly larvae, etc. Known occurrences, collected specimens and observations of Yellow-bellied house gecko. The picture below is not a mourning gecko, but it's the only example I could find. I will of course be editing/updating this guide as new information is being put out. I have personally observed my own gecko spending the majority of her time hiding in her cholla wood and PVC pipes(they seem to like tubes, so I'd imagine bamboo would be a favorite). As mentioned earlier, there are different locales of mournings based on region.
