A brief snippet about Giant Ground Geckos (Chondrodactylus angulifer)

A brief introduction to the species will be inserted here ..... coming soon! In the interim we have a number of links on the species, listed on this page.


Captive Care
Basic care by Sundial Reptiles

Chondros are fairly large terrestrial geckos that can grow a little over 6-inches in length. A 20-gallon (high or long) enclosure is a good minimum size for an adult but could adequately house a pair (1.1 ) as well.

Natural Environment
This is a terrestrial gecko native to the western desert regions of southern Africa. Namely western Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. This is one of the most inhospitable regions in the world, with summer daytime temperatures in excess of 104o F and winter night time temperatures of 50o F. Annual rainfall is only 8 inches. This indicates that the animal is a hardy species and can withstand a wide range of conditions, making it fairly easy to keep.

Namibian Sand Gecko (Chondrodactylus angulifer angulifer)
Housing/Environment : Chondros are fairly large terrestrial geckos that can grow a little over 6-inches in length. A 20-gallon (high or long) enclosure is a good minimum size for an adult but could adequately house a pair (1.1 ) as well. Males should not be housed together as they are highly territorial and will create stress for everyone.
