About Us

Phelsuma Farm specialises in captive bred Day Geckos, breeding most species of Phelsuma for over 30 years, since 1988. Phelsuma Farm offers an amazing range of specialist equipment both in store and through our online shop, offering guidance and advice, and supporting the day gecko and wider reptile keeping community.

Phelsuma Farm is now located at Unit 11A, Ilton Business Park in Ilton, Somerset, England. The farm has also previously been located in Glastonbury, near Eastbourne, and originally at a tropical facility in North London.

The day geckos at Phelsuma Farm live in custom built vivaria designed to the Phelsuma Farmer’s specifications, the product of many years of experience keeping these lizards. Specialised lighting and heating equipment, reverse osmosis water filtering and automated misting systems are used to keep the animals in optimum conditions.

As well as being a specialist day gecko breeding facility, we also keep, breed and sell a wide range of other reptiles, amphibians and exotic animals, including geckos, chameleons, snakes (boas, colubrids, pythons), dart frogs, tree frogs, tarantulas, scorpions, tortoises, turtles, praying mantis, millipedes and more.

Update – Phelsuma Farm has been awarded the 4 star Higher Standards Animal Activities License in July 2019. This is the highest rating we could have achieved as new license holders under the new UK legislation.
