Lygodactylus williamsi

This Species Can Be Found:

On the African continent, in the United Republic of Tanzania 

Tanzania, Africa

The brilliantly colored Lygodactylus williamsi is native to the United Republic of Tanzania and can only be found in the eastern foothills of the Ulu-guru Mountains. This little gecko is only 8.5 centimeters from the snout to the tip of the tail, with the females of the species being slightly smaller. This Tanzanian micro-habitat specialist is now available captive bred in limited quantities. This species is currently critically endangered in the wild and under the protection of [IUCN] and [CITES].

Lygodactylus williamsi is considered a diurnal species, which means it is active and visible during the day. Male L. williamsi have a vibrant electric blue coloration, while females are usually much less colorful. Although rare, some females bred in captivity have been known to have extraordinary amounts of blue and turquoise, which make them appear as if they were a juvenile male. These little creatures truly are nature's version of a Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece.

Important Information

Biome Exotics has gone to great lengths to establish multiple unrelated breeding pairs as founding stock for our breeding projects. This will assure that all our offspring are distinct and have a clean lineage. We keep meticulous records on each lineage, including exact lay and hatch dates, which can be provided at the time of shipping. Unfortunately, determining the sex of juveniles 3-6 months of age is extremely difficult and cannot be guaranteed and is therefore not provided. If a specific sex is preferred, please check out our sub-adults for sale.

From time to time we also part with older adult specimens that were held back for breeding purposes (If interested, please inquire).

*Biome Exotics incubates all their eggs at temperatures consistent to their natural habitat, which steadily produces near equal ratios of males to females.

  • All juvenile Lygodactylus williamsi for sale are un-sexed and approximately 3 to 6 months of age.
  • All sub-adult Lygodactylus williamsi are sexed and approximately 6 to 10 months of age.
  • Please inquire the age of the adult geckos when available. Don't forget to download our detailed CARE SHEET [here]

To assure that our care sheets are always at the forefront and include current best practices in husbandry, Biome Exotics continues to review scientific research papers, climate data as well as acquiring the feedback from many other experts in the field. We continually update our care recommendations based on our findings. Our Care Sheets are always factual, evidence-based, and 100% free of charge.
