    Diurnal Geckos

    Hi, I am looking for a species of diurnal(awake during the day) gecko that has similar requirements to a leopard gecko. Of course they have to have a UV light, but other than that, relatively the same. Can anyone recommend one and what are their requirements? I wouldn't mind if it were omnivorous or herbivorous, rather than insectivorous. Thanks for your help.

    The only family of geckos I am aware of that are diurnal are Madagascan day geckos--and of course, their care requirements are completely different from those of leopard geckos....they require a high humidity rainforest setup, and they climb glass.

    Someone may come along to prove me wrong.

    Every species in the Phelsuma class (or is it family) is diurnal. And yes I know they need taller setups rather than longer ones and need a tight fitting lid. I guess I should've mentioned that I already knew that, LOL . Anyway, thanks for the help. I think I will just research it some more. Maybe I'll get a book.
