R. sarasinorum

R. Sarasinorum is native to New Caledonia. There are two patterns that exist, chevron and white spotted/stripped. The chevron are the most common color pattern.
They average aorund 10 inches in length and are very robust geckos.

You can house a pair in a 20 gall high cage. Artificial turf is used for substrate, cork and grapevine for climbing, a ficus, a shoe box size nest box, screen lid, and a flourecent tube. I mist the sara.'s 2-3 times a day. I also provide a water dish at all times.

I feed them 2 to 3 times a week, crickets. I feed baby peach baby food one to three times a week. Sara.'s relish baby food. I dust most prey items with Mineral All or Rep-Cal.

Sara.'s can be kept in pairs year around. To induce breeding, cool them in the medium 50's for a 2-3 months, then warm them back up to the low 70's. Breeding usually last 5-15 minutes. Incubate eggs like R. Ciliatus. They should hatch anywhere from 60-90 days. This time can vary. Babies are hardy and should be kept separate form each other.
