Jodi, Phelsuma "Day Geckos" from Madagascar and the surrounding islands
that they come from have different care requirements depending on
species type. First thing you need to do is find out which species of
Day Gecko that you have, most have distinguishing colors and markings.
Once you know what you have read all you can about it. One of the best
books is 'The General Care and Maintenance of Day Geckos by Sean
McKeown'. Then get with a local herp society or get on the net and talk
with others who are keeping the same species as you and find out what
works for them. I have a WWW page with general information on Phelsuma
'Day Geckos' and links to other resources.
If you need help with the species type e-mail me.
