    I would say it is a Chinese Cave Gecko (Goniurosaurus luii ) x

    You have two different species living together.

    Lucifer is as already said a g Luii. The other one looks to be g Hainanensis.

    Personally I would keep them separately. I'd also add some more cover to the setups, cork bark tubes and fake plants will be good.

    Thanks Big Red, I have already separated them as I couldn't tell who was eating and how much. They have more climbing spots now but I will add some plants too.

    Is there a way to tell for sure if they are 2 different species? Would more pictures help? I believe that they are both females, they are 14 and 17 grams, would they show male characteristics at this size?

    A good start having them separate.

    Goniurosaurus Luii



    Goniurosaurus Hainanensis



    You can see they are different species as they have a different amount of bands. Count them.....

    They look pretty much adults, a male would show bumps at the underside base of his tail, they are usually easy to see as 'boys'!

    Hope that helps

    Thanks again. I thought that these guys got as large as leopard geckos? These 2 are pretty small. There are no bumps so I guess I have 2 females.

    No, both species are smaller than Leo's especially in weight and 'bulk'.

    Luii are more slender looking while Hainans are a tad chunkier in body shape. Luii will get larger in length than Hainans, but still not Leo size....

    Check this site for good info.
