Manchester Reptile Show: The Vendors Speak

Breeder Chronicles: January Update

Last month I wrote about the 1.3 group that I just received. Unfortunately it turned out to be a 0.4 group so I now have 8 females and 1 male which isn’t very helpful. My plans to create a Dreamsickle are on hold until I can find a Nova or Mack Snow RAPTOR male to match with the Mack Snow RAPTOR females.

Halmahera Gecko Care

Halmahera giant geckos (Gehyra marginata), sometimes erroneously referred to as “vorax geckos,” are large, arboreal geckos from the island of Halmahera in Indonesia.

How I Got Rid of Grain Mites

There is that awful moment for those of us who keep our feeders (meal worms, crickets, superworms, etc.) in gutload grain bedding when we realize that the bedding has been infested with grain mites (Acarus siro). Although the grain mites themselves aren’t particularly harmful to feeders, geckos or humans beyond possibly causing a mild, itchy, allergic reaction, they’re nearly impossible to get rid of without discarding the bedding and, inevitably, the feeders it houses.

Shannon, who has already written several interesting articles for Gecko Time, presents this interview as a narrative, combining his very readable style with the content he has acquired through direct contact with his subject.

Taking On a New Unique, Rare and Exciting Species

What generally sparks my interest in a new species of gecko is its outward appearance, its behaviors, or any other unique characteristics that it may possess. The species I will be writing about is Colopus kochi, and even though I have been working with them for a limited time what fascinates me about them is their ghostly appearance and the characteristic that their eggs go through a very long diapause period, and can take up to two years to incubate.
