Backing Out: An Unceremonious Exit from the Reptile Trade

About four years ago I discovered Bearded Dragons while watching TV. Apparently I lead a sheltered life and had never been exposed to reptiles. I suppose it’s because I grew up horseback riding, and none of my friends ever considered owning a snake, or gecko or bearded dragon. I was smitten!

My Boyfriend is a Gecko Breeder

Upon walking into the Kammerer & Sexton apartment here in Cambridge, MA., one would get the full tour. Here’s my bedroom and bathroom, there’s his, here’s our small kitchen, the loft, our living room/dining room/my office (yes there is a nice terrarium in here with some poison dart frogs), oh, and here is the gecko room.

Breeder Chronicles: Incubator

The incubator is set up and ready to go for the new season and I should have eggs from my Super Hypo female Shiny sometime in the next two weeks. I’m still working on getting either a Mack RAPTOR or Nova male but I’m sure I can find one before the breeding season is over so I won’t stress about it.

Leopard Gecko Pro: A Review of Ron Tremper’s New App

Ron Tremper, who could rightfully be called one of the “fathers” of leopard gecko selective breeding, has recently launched a new app (for iphone and android) called “Leopard Gecko Pro”. This new app is one of a series of leopard gecko morph, gecko care and snake care apps that he has released. I was unable to resist this app and its $9.95 price tag which includes a “lifetime” of free updates in a field that is constantly evolving.

Manchester Reptile Show: The Vendors Speak

There has been a certain amount of unease in the reptile-keeping community about the increasing difficulty of selling reptiles.

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.

Shannon’s “Quickie Interview” with Jeff Galewood Jr.: the White & Yellows

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.
