Misa's not worried....

Unfortunately, probably not. I don't have room for a breeder setup, so if they will surely be gladiators.

That's cool, a close friend of my breeds ball pythons and some other stuff. They're so cute as babies.

I like creepy things, vines included.

uroplatus are my favorite, i've tried my hand at ebenaiu a couple times but could never get them to acclimate well (plus they were probably riddled with worms)

This is an old photo. I have since moved everyone into a cookie cutter rack set up. I'll snap some photos this weekend.

Are they difficult to care for and/or breed? I imagine that being from madagascar they need 75% minimum humidty?

They are pretty touchy. They like it cool - low 70s to high 60s. Humidity doesn't need to be so high all the time, mostly just at night. Biggest challenge for me is the temperature.
