Latin Name: Phelsuma madagascariensis madagascariensis
Giant Madagascan Day Geckos grow to be 25-30cm (10-12 inches) and have a life span of 6-8 years. They are omnivorous so will eat insects such as crickets, mealworms and locusts (dusted with calcium powder) and fruit which can be given in the from of Reptiles Supplies Gecko Diet, that comes in 18 different flavours. Giant Madagascan Day Geckos are arboreal so will spend very little time on the ground, so by misting regularly, they will lap water droplets from surrounding foliage to stay hydrated. They require a basking spot of 80 Fahrenheit (27 Celsius) as well as 5% UVB and humidity levels of around 60%.
