Some Thoughts About Crested Gecko Breeding

Crested geckos have gained in popularity with the reptile community due to their ease of care, their handle-ability, unique features, and ease of breeding. This species was once considered genetically unpredictable: babies could hatch out looking nothing like the parents, or look nearly identical to them. And for some that was half of the fun, never knowing what would hatch. But for some of us it was frustrating in the beginning, trying to understand why two geckos that looked so similar would produce so many offspring that looked entirely different from the parents.

Out With the Old, In With the New

My favorite series in the more than 5 years of Gecko Time publication has been the monthly “Three to Get Ready” articles. A series is a valuable resource for any magazine editor because it’s a guaranteed slot in the weekly hunt for articles. This series made no great demands on any single individual: all that was required was for the contributor to respond to 5 simple questions.

Nutritional Value of Commercially Raised Insects

Up until recently there was little detailed nutritional information about commercially raised insects. However in the last 10 years the nutrient content of the most common commercially raised insects has been published in peer reviewed journals. These analyses include house crickets (Acheta domesticus), waxworms (Galleria mellonella larvae) mealworms (Tenebrio molitor larvae), superworms (Zophobas morio larvae), silkworms (Bombyx mori larvae) butterworms (Chilecomadia moorei larvae), soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens larvae) and several species of roaches and locusts.

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.

Three to Get Ready: Tarentola

Tarentola is a genus of gecko with a wide ranging distribution. The most common member of this genus in captivity is the T. chazaliae, commonly called the “helmeted gecko”. These are small, relatively undemanding geckos and hopefully the information about them below from three keepers will inspire others to look into getting some.

Great Escapes

As the owner of a fairly large group of geckos I’ve had my fair share of gecko escapes during the past 10 years. The sweetest ones, of course, are the geckos that come back.

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.
