These small, highly active lizards are fun to watch.
Care requirements are the same as Lygodactylus williamsi--temps of 80 with a 90F basking spot, humidity between 60 and 80%, UVB light.
A vivarium with lots of cover is essential, and a well-planted naturalistic vivarium is suggested. Spray with water once or twice a day for drinking.
Diet is the same as L. williamsi, but they can be fed more, as they won't overeat quite as heavily. Dusted 1/8 inch crickets, flightless fruit flies, mini-mealworms, etc, and CGD or fruit puree with calcium.
These animals tend to be a bit more skittish and high strung than L. williamsi, so handling is definitely not recommended. 10 gallon or 12X12 cube vivarium is recommended for 2 animals. No more than one male per cage. Females are less aggressive than L. williamsi.
