Day geckos can be found in East Africa and some south pacific islands but the vast majority are native to Madagascar. They range in size from less than 10cm to over 30cm; one extinct species (Phelsuma gigas) from Rodriguez Island near Mauritius was one of the largest gecko species ever known. Day geckos are unique in behaviour as like the name suggests they are diurnal (active during the day) unlike most geckos which are most active during the night (nocturnal) or at dawn and dusk (crepuscular). 

The Mauritius Lowland Forest Day Gecko (Phelsuma guimbeaui) is one of the most striking of all day geckos with blue white and red markings overlaying their lime green background colouration. Like all day geckos they are a display species that is not well suited to being handled but they are certainly interesting vivarium occupants nonetheless. This particular species of day gecko is also one of the most sought after and rare species in the hobby with only a handful of breeders across Europe being fortunate enough to work with them. These were bred right here in store.
