Hemidactylus imbricatus: A Gecko of Many Names

Originally known as Teratolepis fasciata, the genus Teratolepis was abolished due to the fact that the whole genus consisted of only two geckos: Teratolepis fasciata and Teratolepis albofasciatus. Teratolepis was originally established by Gunther in1869 because he considered them to have a ‘bizarre scalation’. Recently, in 2008, they were reclassified by Bauer as Hemidactylus imbricatus commonly called the ‚Äúviper gecko”.

Journey to My Perfect Carrottail

As the autumn winds blow, leaves begin to fall and temperatures gradually change. Bright orange pumpkins of all sizes begin to line residential neighborhoods; black and orange decorations fill department stores and shops- all marking the fast-approaching Halloween holiday. . . Arriving in my gecko room, I smile to myself as I carefully slide open a plastic sweater box to reveal a brightly colored orange reptile.

Biosecurity for the Gecko Breeder

Are you practicing good biosecurity? Maybe you are only vaguely familiar with the term. Most herpetoculturists I talk to are ill prepared to meet the bio threats that can devastate their collections. The threat is real; all reptile collections are at risk. The threat is any type of infectious agent–viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic.

What’s Up With the Gecko Time Editors?

It’s generally accepted these days that collaboration is not limited by geography. With all the tools at our disposal, from the internet to skype, people can work together easily while living half a world apart. This is definitely true: Gecko Time has published regularly for two and a half years with seamless communication between its co-editors, one living in Massachusetts and one in Georgia. So how could things change with Matthew Kammerer, owner of the Gecko Time site, moving to Cambridge Massachusetts, just 5 minutes away from his co-editor, Aliza Arzt? Answer: for the better!

Breeding on a Small Scale Revisited

In April 2009, after breeding leopard geckos for 4 seasons, I wrote an article for Gecko Time about breeding leopard geckos on a small scale. Since its publication, the article has consistently been the second or third most read on the site. Now that I ‘ve been breeding geckos at this level for another 3 seasons, I thought I would update my views and advice since new issues have arisen that I didn’t consider earlier in my breeding experience.

Rebuilding a Gecko Collection

While in high school I kept geckos on a large scale. Keeping hundreds of geckos is taxing. Anyone who has kept pets knows there are good days and bad days. Near the end of high school I was getting burnt out. It was more of a chore and less of a pleasure to feed and clean every night. Selling the collection before college was a relief.
