Geckolepis maculata: Learning a New Species

I first heard of the genus Geckolepis a few years ago from online photos and was immediately drawn to their cartoon-like features with short, thick legs and their typical gecko “smiling” faces. Unfortunately, extensive searches on Google proved that there was very little information available on them let alone purchase availability and I had no better luck in the months to years in between looking them up.

What’s Going On With My New Leopard Gecko?

For new gecko owners, the first few weeks can be an anxiety-filled time. Without the knowledge base that comes with reptile experience, it can be difficult to know whether or not the gecko is thriving and whether the new keeper is using correct husbandry.

Three to Get Ready: Ptychozoon

There has been much interest lately in the genus Pytchozoon, which can be as difficult to acquire as to pronounce (TY-ko-zone –the “P” is silent). There are 8 species of Pytchozoon, more commonly known as the “flying gecko” or “Parachute gecko”, though generally only P. Kuhli is found in the pet trade. What could fail to fascinate about a gecko that can fly? Though of course, more correctly, it glides, space permitting.

Wild-Caught in Madagascar: From forest to shoebox

Three to Get Ready: Hemidactylus

The publication last month of a “Three to Get Ready” focusing on viper geckos, Hemidactylus imbricatus, sparked a desire from one reader for us to do an article focusing on the entire Hemidactylus genus. Your wish is our command! Hemidactylus is a genus of over 90 species, many of which go by the common name “house gecko” because of their ability to flourish in human occupied space, and, as you’ll read below, new species are being discovered all the time.
