The Leopard Gecko Wiki

The Leopard Gecko Wiki was originally created in August of 2007 to provide a searchable database of accurate Leopard Gecko information for breeders, keepers, and prospective owners of Leopard Geckos.

My goal was to create an environment where any type of Leopard Gecko owner or prospective owner could find information easily.

Help Us Fight Cryptosporidium in Leopard Geckos

A study is being hosted at The Lehigh Valley Zoo on the effects of a new antiprotozoal drug on Cryptosporidium in Leopard Geckos. “Crypto” has caused massive fear in the gecko community for as long as I have been part of it. This parasite can sneak into your colonies through new additions and take out your whole collection quickly without proper quarantine and a watchful eye. Not only is crypto a risk to your animals but anapsid.org also describes how it is a health risk to keepers.

Homeopathic Remedies for Geckos

One topic that comes up occasionally in gecko circles (and other pet circles as well), is: when and how can “home remedy treatments” be given to our pets? While each owner ultimately must decide for themselves; there are some things that can be done at home, others that never should be done at home, and some that might be done under veterinarian supervision only.

“My Gecko Will Not Eat” Part 2

In a previous article (http://www.geckotime.com/my-gecko-is-not-eating/ ) I described common situations, including illness, life cycle and stress, that result in geckos not eating and provided suggestions for how to deal with each case. This article addresses an even more frustrating situation: the gecko who doesn’t seem to belong to any of the categories above but continues to refuse to eat, sometimes for months.

Squamata Concepts’ S.I.M. Container Evolution

The S.I.M incubation container started out as being a homemade “no substrate” container. John Adragna and I have been keeping and breeding reptiles for well over 20 years and incubated eggs like most have over the years. Although the traditional methods of incubation have always served us well in the past, we wanted a better, more reliable method of incubation, one that would be quick and easy to set up without worrying too much about measuring water to substrate ratios, and that would yield equal to, or better results.

Beginner Breeder Basics: Comparing Incubation Mediums

As reptile breeders, we spend a lot of time deciding what products to use in order to keep our breeding colony healthy. I’m sure we all want our females to produce healthy offspring, so we make sure they are well supplemented and at a healthy weight. This same concept carries over to how we go about deciding what medium to use for incubating the eggs. We all want to guarantee the best hatch rate for those eggs, right?!
