Ecology Care and Breeding of the Namib Web Footed Gecko

“Perhaps the most remarkable Gecko of the South African geckoes is the web-footed Palmatogecko from the Namib desert.“ Brain (1958) formulated it very accurately in his description of one of the characteristic species from Namibia’s coastal deserts.
Even though P. rangei counts among the well known species it is still a rare sight in our terrariums.

Conservation Biology in Namibia

Namibia is located on the Atlantic coast between South Africa and Angola, and for five years my fellow instructors and I from The University of Arizona have been taking 8 – 13 undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of different majors to Namibia as part of a six-week conservation biology class. Why Namibia?

New Breeder Chronicles: 2011 Breeding Season in Review

It’s hard to believe but one full year of breeding is now under my belt and as usual things didn’t go as planned, but they were fun. At this point I thought I would have 2 full racks of hatchlings, a couple of sales and be setting up for my first show.

Why Do We Do What We Do?

Why do we keep geckos? Paint? Write lyrics? Or poetry? Why do we have this compunction to have hobbies? The answer is not that simple, but one writer, Thomas Moore, has given me some insights I’d like to share with you. If you don’t want to take this philosophical journey, and this IS a philosophical journey, abort this mission now.

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 “viper 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.

New Breeder Chronicles: The Geckos and the Elements

So far all my hatchlings have come from the Sunglow by Superhypo pair and for the most part the hatchlings look the same. That was until this past Saturday when I found a present in the incubator.

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!
