I'm wondering If anyone knows of any husbandry/reproduction care
sheets or articles on the frog eyed geckos? If you do could you please
e-mail me and tell me about them?

Suggest you obtain Vol 6 No 6 Vivarium.  Dactylus, the journal of the
International Gecko Society, also has had articles on Teratoscincus.  
Most of the books specifically on geckos will touch on them.  One of
those is "Geckoes" by Henkel & Schmidt.  I raise Teratoscincus s.
keyserlingii - Giant Frog-eyed geckos.  They are kept in sweater boxes
with a portion of sand substrate reaching 90 - 95 F during the day and
perhaps 80 F from 11pm to 6am.  Clay flower pot saucers are used as
shelters.  I cut an entrance door with a coarse saw blade.  Once  a week
I soak the shelter in water or pour water on top of it to provide more
humidity for one evening.  Crickets and king mealworms are the food of
choice and I usually  coat them with calcium and vitamin supplements
especially for breeding females.  Eggs should be kept at a low humidity
at approx 85 F.  Do not treat them as leopard gecko eggs with moist
vermiculite!  GOOD LUCK!
