    Leopard Gecko Pro: A Review of Ron Tremper’s New App

    Ron Tremper, who could rightfully be called one of the “fathers” of leopard gecko selective breeding, has recently launched a new app (for iphone and android) called “Leopard Gecko Pro”. This new app is one of a series of leopard gecko morph, gecko care and snake care apps that he has released. I was unable to resist this app and its $9.95 price tag which includes a “lifetime” of free updates in a field that is constantly evolving.

    Breeding on a Small Scale Revisited

    In April 2009, after breeding leopard geckos for 4 seasons, I wrote an article for Gecko Time about breeding leopard geckos on a small scale.
