Lepidodactylus lugubris. Commonly called the mourning gecko or smooth scaled gecko. This is the form found on the Hawaiian islands, where it is an introduced species that has been firmly established for decades. These individuals have pronounced markings near their forelimbs and hindlimbs. Our high expression Hawaiian mourning geckos have these pronounced markings across their entire back. Hawaiian mourning geckos will thrive in an enclosure as small as 5 gallons, but 10 gallons or larger are recommended for multiple animals. Many people successfully keep these geckos in naturalistic vivaria, housed with larger dart frogs. Mourning geckos are escape artists, and it's always important to fully secure their enclosure to prevent escapes! At Josh's Frogs, we secure Exo Terra enclosures by siliconing the lid and blocking the front vents with pond foam.
