Reaching near 16 inches and weighing up to a pound, the giant geckos of New Caledonian are currently the largest of the living geckos. Giant Geckos are also remarkable in their social behaviours, forming monogamous pair bonds with habits similar to those of hollow-nesting birds. Although once considered rare, these impressive lizards are now captive-bred in the reptile hobby. They rank among the best of reptile pets, being relatively docile and easy to house and care for.
The second edition of The Life of Giant Geckos includes a breeding method by Ariel Cudia, information on using Ficus with juvenile leachianus, and additional pictures of morphotypes.
