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.

Prose and Controversies: Geckos’ Needs/Keepers’ Needs

Despite the title’s juxtaposition of the geckos’ needs and the gecko keepers’ needs, this issue isn’t so much an “either-or” situation, but a continuum where balance must be found between the two. The controversy comes in determining the appropriate place on the continuum.

The Joys and Sorrows of Reptile Breeding

Let’s face it: Everyone needs a hobby or two, a break from the everyday grind. We are happiest when we pursue personal passions. I’ve had a few that I have dabbled in over the years, but once I started working with reptiles I knew that it was to be a lifelong obsession. I have been immersed for fifteen years now and have experienced many joys and sorrows along the way.

Three to Get Ready: Goniurosaurus

Goniurosurus also known as “cave geckos” are a small, terrestrial gecko native to China, Japan and Vietnam. With their bright colors (which I think makes them look like psychedelic leopard geckos) and red eyes, they are striking to look at and tempting to own.

They just don’t know enough to appreciate how extraordinary these creatures are.

Party Geckos!

Party Geckos!

A few months ago, I found myself staring at a room full of reptiles to feed, cages to clean, and had to face the realization that I no longer had any interest in the bins full of scaly babies. Prep the meals, pull the tubs, open the tubs, pull paper, catch an escapee, replace in tub with a ‘stay’ warning, mist, place fresh food, close tubs, stack, reset. Where was I going with any of this?
