Lepidodactylus lugubris. Commonly called the mourning gecko or smooth scaled gecko.
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.
