Standing Day Gecko Care Guide

Standing’s Day Geckos are small lizards native to Madagascar. They are named after the English zoologist and herpetologist, George Albert Boulenger. These geckos are known for their vibrant colors and patterns, which can range from greens and yellows to reds and oranges.

In terms of size, Standing’s Day Geckos can grow to be about 6-8 inches in length from head to tail. As such, they require a small enclosure for their home. A 10-gallon terrarium is a good starting size for a single gecko, but you may need a larger enclosure if you plan on keeping multiple geckos together.

When it comes to housing, Standing’s Day Geckos require a warm, humid environment to thrive. The terrarium should be set up with plenty of hiding spots, such as coconut hides or PVC pipes, and plenty of branches and plants for the gecko to climb on and explore. It’s important to provide a variety of plants, both live and artificial, to help create a naturalistic environment for the gecko.

The substrate (or bedding) is also an important consideration for Standing’s Day Geckos. A good option is a combination of coconut coir and sphagnum moss, which can help to maintain the terrarium’s humidity levels. Avoid using substrates made of loose material, such as sand or gravel, as these can be ingested by the gecko and cause impaction.

Heating and humidity are crucial for Standing’s Day Geckos. The terrarium should be kept between 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with a basking spot that reaches temperatures of 85-90 degrees. At night, the temperature can drop to around 70 degrees. A heat lamp or ceramic heater can be used to provide the necessary heat, and a digital thermometer can help you monitor the temperature levels in the terrarium.

In terms of humidity, Standing’s Day Geckos require a relatively high level of moisture in their environment. The terrarium should have a humidity level of around 70-80%, which can be achieved by misting the enclosure with water a few times a day. A hygrometer can help you monitor the humidity levels in the terrarium.

When it comes to handling Standing’s Day Geckos, it’s important to be gentle and respectful of their space. These geckos can be skittish and may try to escape if they feel threatened. It’s best to let them get used to your presence before attempting to handle them, and to always support their body when picking them up.

In terms of diet, Standing’s Day Geckos are primarily insectivores. They can be fed a variety of live insects, such as crickets, roaches, and mealworms. These should be dusted with a calcium supplement to ensure that the gecko gets all the nutrients they need. It’s important not to overfeed the gecko, as they can become overweight and develop health problems. A varied diet, with a mix of insects and occasional treats like fruit or vegetables, can help to keep your Standing’s Day Gecko healthy and happy.
