Going Green While Keeping Geckos

If you were to ask any reptile hobbyist about their collection, it would probably be difficult to get them to stop talking.

With all these new keepers joining and breeders expanding their inventory, one might start to wonder what kind of impact this incredible hobby has on the environment.
