Gold Dust Day Geckos are a small diurnal (daytime active) species of gecko native to northern Madagascar and its offshore islands. It has also been accidentally introduced to various Pacific islands, most notably Hawaii. They get the name “gold dust” due to the tiny flecks of yellow markings in amongst their overall green background colouration especially towards the tail and across the shoulders.

Day Geckos are active, alert and brightly coloured making them excellent occupants for display vivaria. In the wild they inhabit humid lowland rainforest and are often found in and around human dwellings as they adapt readily to secondary habitat. They feed on small insects, fruit, sugary tree sap and nectar from flowers. Smaller day geckos can even act as pollinators for some species of flower. They will thrive in live planted / Bioactive enclosures and will feed on a mixed diet of insects and artificial gecko diet like those that are made for crested geckos. As a treat they can also have honey or mashed fruit.

They are not suitable for handling due to their fast speed and the delicate nature of their skin. While all geckos can drop their tail if startled (the term for this is caudal autotomy), day geckos are also able to voluntarily shed off the top layers of scales and skin so that if grabbed by a predator they can wriggle free leaving the predator with just a mouthful of scales while the gecko escapes. With a little gentle coaxing and perseverance many day geckos will get tame enough within their enclosure to be hand fed on insects and honey. Most day geckos are best kept singly or in pairs as they don’t tend to tolerate others in a group setting but Gold Dust Day geckos will live in small groups so long as a maximum of only 1 male is present.

 Like virtually all the animals we sell, these Gold Dust Day Geckos were bred right here in store.
