Chronicles of a New Breeder: Mating Success and Morph Decisions

Before I get to the exciting news I’ll do a little bookkeeping like I usually do at the beginning of each article. My current money flow is the same which is to be expected. I’m down $618.73 but I haven’t had to buy any feeders at all and have what seems to be a self sufficient mealworm colony.

The Evolution of an Accidental Herpetoculturist

Sometimes an interest is cultivated, groomed and planned like you would a trip to Mars, other times you fall into it like Alice into Wonderland. The story of myself and my “herpies” as I like to call them, is the latter. I was asked to write about how I got into reptiles, the twists and turns so far, and what the future may hold. Though I can’t guarantee it will be interesting, it’s the only story I’ve got so here it goes.

Eggs?! Help!

Breeding season for most geckos is in full swing and gecko forums are full of anxious questions about eggs and incubation: Is my moldy/dented/shriveled/green and gooey egg OK? Why haven’t I gotten any fertile eggs yet? When will my gecko ovulate/lay her eggs? When will my eggs hatch? Face it, we’re much more broody about those eggs than the geckos.

Readers’ Non-Questions “Answered”

Our April Readers’ Questions have been answered! Take a peak at the results.

Question 1: I have been doing a lot of research about substrates and am having a hard time finding the correct one.  First I tried repti-carpet, but none of the colors went with my décor.  I tried switching to newspaper and  paper towel, but they both rip every time anyone walks through.  Then I read the article in Gecko Time about bio-active substrate.  I went to the woods with my dump truck, got the sand at Home Depot and made up a batch.  I installed it in the whole house, but we’re tracking it all over the place. What else can I do?

What Hatches Out of My Incubator Results

Our friends over at Incubators.org have donated two Reptipro incubators for two lucky Gecko Time readers.

We asked our readers to send us a photo, drawing or written description of any type of gecko that you have hatched or hope to hatch from their incubator.  This can be an actual morph of a gecko or a rendering of your fantasy gecko (for example, a solid black leopard gecko with red eyes).  Photoshopped pictures are welcome, but please indicate whether this is an actual gecko or a photoshopped submission.
