Short Fingered Gecko WC
Short-Fingered Geckos are dwarf desert geckos which originate from North Africa and are mostly active at night.
Short-Fingered Geckos grow to around 3-6cm maximum and feed on a diet of insects like crickets, locusts and small worms. They require a basking temperature of 30-35ºc with a night time drop of around 5-10ºc. Although Short-Fingered Geckos are from hot sunny deserts, they are primarily active at night and so there is some discussion on whether they require UVB, although there is no harm in providing it as these geckos tend to hide under rocks and sand until night time.
Short-Fingered Geckos enjoy a deep sandy substrate with rocks and décor resembling that of the wild. Always make sure there are plenty of placed for your Short-Fingered Geckos.
Short-Fingered Geckos are communal and can be kept in groups without issues, the best mix being 1 male and several females. They are extremely fertile and you are likely to find eggs regularly during breeding season if you keep them together.
