A Game of Musical Cages

Some of us don’t have the luxury of reptile rooms. Some of us share our living space with others who aren’t reptile fanatics.  It can be a challenge to provide appropriate caging for a moderately-sized reptile collection in public living space.  It becomes even more challenging when the number and species of reptile waxes and […]

Phelsuma grandis Hatchlings on the Way

About a year and a half ago my girlfriend and I fell in love with the videos on YouTube showing how affectionate Giant Day Geckos could be. Since I used to keep other lizards in the past including a few leopards geckos, I figured we could manage it. So I did tons of research, joined forums and asked questions […]

Keeping Microgecko persicus euphorbiacola

In 1999 during one of my frequent visits to the East Bay Vivarium in Berkeley, Ca., I came across a group of geckos labelled as wild-caught Tropiocolotes persicus for $12 each.

A Tale of Three Incubators

A working incubator is a crucial ingredient for a successful reptile breeding season. Eggs do hatch in the enclosure and in appropriately warm parts of the home but generally, the hatch rates are higher when the temperature can be carefully controlled.

Here is my story, presented not to give a scientific accounting of each type, but as a narrative explaining my journey to a “perfect” incubator (I chose not to try to build my own incubator for a variety of reasons).
