Thank you so much for the comment! They're so much fun to watch and look at but its really not a good idea to handle these guys as their skin is really sensitive. They're more of a look at type of gecko! She deals with my hand inside the tank to clean it and put crickets in though so shes pretty even tempered! They need at least a 20 gallon tank as they love to climb and hang onto the glass. Here's a video of Mage catching a cricket: [link]
You also need a lot of hide aways in their tank or else they get stressed too. This is my setup for her: [link]
I've since added a little rock hideaway too and removed the water dish as they never eat or drink out of it. You have to mist the cage a few times a day to keep the humidity up as well as for them to drink
For those who might be wondering - or confused - 'golden gecko' is a nickname for this lizard. It's actually known as the Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda). I mention this because, if you walked into a reptile specialist and asked for a 'golden gecko', they'd probably be scratching their heads for a while before they figured out what you were talking about.
This gecko isn't always such a bright (and very pretty in this case, I might add) yellow colour; it's more often a bright green with yellow speckles on its neck and back - the 'gold dust', from where its name comes. Rarely, it's sometimes known to be blue as well.
