Breeding Feeders in Situ

For many of us, the bugs and worms we use to feed our geckos can be considered to be almost like a second “business” what with purchasing them, housing and feeding them, and trying to keep them from escaping during the transfer from their own habitat to the geckos’. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just produce our feeders right in the geckos’ cages?

Prose and Controversies: Wild Type or Designers?

Gecko keepers have many reasons for breeding. Two of the most common ones are: increasing the population of species that are endangered in the wild, and creating new and unusual colors and patterns for a particular species.

These goals can, and do, co-exist. However, proponents of each type may feel that the other’s goals are detrimental to the species.

Supplying Feeders to Alaska

Having a feeder shop to meet the demands of the ever expanding reptile trade is not a cakewalk nor is it for those who like a lot of sleep. When we prepare to order our inventory, there is no one place to get: waxworms, hornworms, silkworms, calci-worms, phoenix worms, crickets in all sizes, or even live mice in all sizes as well as frozen ones. Just about every food item comes from a place that specializes in that food item alone.

Three to Get Ready: Cat Geckos

Despite a rather controversial April Fool’s article there really is a gecko genus commonly known as “cat geckos”. As you will discover below, these geckos are unusual in their appearance as well as the way they move

Attending Your First Reptile Show

A few years ago, I wrote an article for Gecko Time called “How to Vend at Your First Reptile Show”. It occurs to me that a similar article for people attending a first reptile show would be useful as well.

Saying Goodbye to Geckos

Saying Goodbye to Geckos

It’s a fair statement to say that I have become more accustomed to routine the older I grow. A typical Saturday starts with driving [Stephanie](url) to work around 5 AM (Starbucks opening shift), coming home, and sleeping for a few more hours. I then climb out of bed, brew a cup of coffee, and catch up on all that’s wrong with the world via the news. Then the real fun starts.

“Geckos’ Needs/Keepers’ Needs” Comments

We received many thoughtful responses to our questions about balancing geckos’ needs and keepers’ needs. While the responses reflect the indivuals’ unique opinions, the consensus here, as you will see, seems to be a focus on “geckos’ health, keepers’ health”.

Modular Storage for Geckos

I’m pretty sure that anyone who has ever wanted to get into breeding leopard geckos has gone to websites like apcages.com, boaphileplastics.com, or cserpents.com and drooled over the beautiful rack systems they offer. Then when you see the price, your mouth instantly dries up and you’re left bummed out or making the world’s most expensive Christmas wish-list.

Three to Get Ready: Parthenogenetic Geckos

There has been much talk recently about egg-laying geckos that also occasionally reproduce parthenogenetically.  Today’s article, however, focuses on “obligate” parthenogenetic geckos, i.e. those who are ‘obligated” to reproduce asexually.  These geckos are generally quite small and live in desert or near-desert climates.  Incidentally, the process of asexual reproduction is called “parthenogenesis” and the adjective has been rendered both “parthenogenic” and “parthenogenetic”.  We have chosen to consistently use the term “parthenogenetic”.

The Rubbermaid Tub Ideas

We had high hopes for getting a lot of nice ideas about how to use these new Rubbermaid tubs with the clear front panel, especially since they inspired so much discussion on some of the reptile forums.
This has not happened.
