Northern Spiny Tailed Geckos are native to Australia. Their small size and robust nature makes them relatively easy to care for. Like all Strophurus species they have the ability to squirt a sticky mucus from the base of their tail to deter predators, although this is rarely seen in captivity. Despite coming from an arid environment they will benefit from a light misting at least once per day as they will often prefer to drink water droplets rather than from a water bowl. Strophurus ciliaris is arguably the most attractive of the Strophurus species and highly sought after; as it is quite rare in captivity.
These are bred here in store.
