Big Bad Bart

Bart seems to think he’s a flying gecko.  Or perhaps he thinks he’s an impresario.  In a household of 65 or more reptiles, most of them geckos, it takes a large “personality” to stand out, and Bart certainly does.  Every evening, the loudest sounds in the gecko room, also known as my living room, are the thumps of Bart jumping from one glass wall to another and sometimes crashing and burning in a spectacular way on the pothos leaves when he miscalculates.

Healing through Art and Reptiles

It often goes without saying, but I had a rough childhood. Regardless, two things kept me going
through it all; art and animals. As a result, my passion for art and the animals in my life have always been intertwined and fed off one another. It all started in my youth with a fascination for dragons.

Crested Gecko Breeding Revisited

Let’s talk a little about Crested Gecko breeding. Many new breeders or hobbyists in the Crested Gecko world will simply put any male and female together, just hoping to produce babies. There’s no rhyme or reason to the pairings and the results are generally a mix of whatever morphs are being paired.

Improvements on a Tub

Tub or viv? It’s one of the questions that comes up time and time again in the reptile hobby.  It’s a question that polarizes some keepers and most people will have an opinion or preference one way or the other.  Indeed, Gecko Time has previously covered the topic as part of the Pros and Controversies series, with readers on both sides of the fence.

Banded Gecko Oddysey

I first saw the banded gecko in a book my parents got for me as a gift from Phoenix, AZ. The book was called 50 common Reptiles & Amphibians of the Southwest and it showed the desert banded gecko. Fast forward another 3 years and we went to Arizona for vacation, where I got to see the desert banded gecko at the Phoenix Zoo. I fell in love after that moment, from that moment on till this day I’ve researched about this species hoping to buy some in the future.

Frog Eyed Gecko Care Sheet

As someone who has several Frog-Eyed geckos and is an avid reptile enthusiast, I find the extreme lack of information about this species to be very upsetting. Most of the “care sheets,“ and I use that term loosely, that I have found through my hours upon hours of searching are at their core a revised leopard gecko care sheet.

How do Geckos Determine Sex?

Most gecko species reproduce sexually and both a male and female are required for successful breeding. But how are the sexes produced? How does a gecko egg “know” to produce a male or female hatchling? Answering these questions depends upon which species of gecko you are talking about, because geckos have come up with a variety of ways to determine sex.

Escaped Geckos and Impressive Finds

Gecko Time has gotten many frantic requests for assistance from people whose geckos have escaped their cages ever since running the article Find an Escaped Gecko in January 2010.  In addition to the understandable worry about re-locating a missing pet, there is usually tremendous concern about clutter in the house, cats, dogs and openings in walls or stairwells that will make the retrieval job more difficult.  Even the miraculous story of one of my geckos found after 2 years sojourn somewhere in the house doesn’t seem to help people feel better.  Though I can’t guarantee that a lost gecko can be found, I thought that a few more stories about miraculous gecko (and one non-gecko) finds might rekindle some hope.
