Caring for Elderly or Terminally Ill Geckos: A Personal Reflection

Ideally we’ll own all of our geckos for many years. They’ll live comfortable, happy lives, and one day, perhaps at the advanced age of 20 or more, they just won’t wake up. We’ll miss them, but we’ll be satisfied that they had a long and happy life. Of course, it doesn’t usually work out this way.

Gecko Breeding Philosophy: What is a Morph?

Gecko breeders spend a lot of time discussing various “morphs” of those gecko species for whom breeders have developed different patterns and colors. To the best of my knowledge, there is no formal, universally accepted definition of what exactly is a “morph”.

Big Bad Bart

Bart seems to think he’s a flying gecko.  Or perhaps he thinks he’s an impresario.  In a household of 65 or more reptiles, most of them geckos, it takes a large “personality” to stand out, and Bart certainly does.  Every evening, the loudest sounds in the gecko room, also known as my living room, are the thumps of Bart jumping from one glass wall to another and sometimes crashing and burning in a spectacular way on the pothos leaves when he miscalculates.

Escaped Geckos and Impressive Finds

Gecko Time has gotten many frantic requests for assistance from people whose geckos have escaped their cages ever since running the article Find an Escaped Gecko in January 2010.  In addition to the understandable worry about re-locating a missing pet, there is usually tremendous concern about clutter in the house, cats, dogs and openings in walls or stairwells that will make the retrieval job more difficult.  Even the miraculous story of one of my geckos found after 2 years sojourn somewhere in the house doesn’t seem to help people feel better.  Though I can’t guarantee that a lost gecko can be found, I thought that a few more stories about miraculous gecko (and one non-gecko) finds might rekindle some hope.

For many years it seemed as if African Fat Tail geckos were simply drab cousins of the much more popular leopard geckos.  With the advent of new morphs such as whiteout, zulu and oreo, the fat tail palette colors and patterns has exploded and their popularity has soared.  Despite this, it was very difficult to find people willing and able to answer some of Gecko Time’s questions about them.
