Uroplatus Fimbriatus, also known as the Common flat-tail leaf-tailed gecko, is a species of gecko found in Madagascar. They are known for their distinctive, leaf-shaped tail and fringed skin that helps them blend in with their natural environment. Their coloration can range from a pale gray to a dark brown, with some individuals having a beautiful iridescent sheen. They are great pets for those interested in keeping unique and exotic reptiles.
Note. We do our best to sex these, but given the similarities between males and females, we cannot guarantee sex 100%. Pictures are samples; they are not the actual geckos available.
It’s a hardy species and relatively easy to care for in captivity as long as its specific needs are met. They require a terrarium with a high humidity level of 60-90% and a temperature range of 75-80F. They are primarily insectivores and should be fed a diet of crickets, mealworms and other appropriately-sized live insects. They can also be fed with fruit paste as a treat occasionally. They are a shy and elusive species, so they should be handled carefully and not too often. They are also nocturnal animals, so they might be more active at night, making them a great addition to a collection of nocturnal reptiles. They are fascinating and entertaining to watch and a great conversation starters.
Even though our animals arrive in excellent shape, like other pets in your household, a fecal test is suggested to check for possible parasites. These are not always present, and this practice should be part of the routine for any chameleon keeper. A fecal test should be run on any reptile collection, WC or CB every year.
