Leopard Gecko Morph Special: the New Bluebelly Pastel Gene

Geckos with the new “pastel” single gene were officially released by Ron Tremper in 2014.

The project has been selectively bred and developed since 2009.

Found!

Recently I got a gecko-related communication from my downstairs neighbor. This is not unusual, since I get frequent requests to come down and remove dead crickets from the lamp fixtures or live ones from under the refrigerator.

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 […]

After having discussions with other gecko keepers, I realized my errors in their care.
