What Hatches Out of My Incubator Results

Our friends over at Incubators.org have donated two Reptipro incubators for two lucky Gecko Time readers.

We asked our readers to send us a photo, drawing or written description of any type of gecko that you have hatched or hope to hatch from their incubator.  This can be an actual morph of a gecko or a rendering of your fantasy gecko (for example, a solid black leopard gecko with red eyes).  Photoshopped pictures are welcome, but please indicate whether this is an actual gecko or a photoshopped submission.

The Chronicles of a New Gecko Breeder

I first started breeding Leopard Geckos in 2000 in my dorm room at NYU. I always had a fascination with reptiles and fish and wanted to pursue a degree in Biology in hopes of getting my PhD in herpetology. However, after realizing that life in college was hard enough and the PhD would cost me far more than I would ever really make, I settled into a degree and career in IT which came easier to me than Chemistry.
