The Yellow-headed Dwarf Gecko (Lygodactylus luteopicturatus) is small and boldly colored species of Gecko from East Africa. They are fascinating and interesting geckos that do very well in captivity if they are kept in the right conditions and their vivarium is the right size for them. They feed very well off pinhead crickets and fruit flies. They can be successfully kept in Glass Vivariums measuring 60cm tall x 40cm wide x 40cm deep. Their vivariums should be fitted with lots of natural branches to climb on and a lot of live plants to hide in. I find this species very easy to keep and not very demanding but they need to be checked on a daily basis and feed every second day. A great species for advanced Gecko Geeks.
