    Three to Get Ready Epilogue: Teratoscincus

    As you probably know from a previous article, we discontinued the Three to Get Ready series due to the difficulty of finding enough keepers to write about the increasingly uncommon species and genera we were attempting to profile. At the time of this unfortunate discovery, we were unsucessfully trying to find contributors for an article about Teratoscincus. Recently, we unearthed two people willing to write about their experience with these “frog eyed geckos”. More

    Gecko Husbandry Changes – Part 2

    We hope last week’s first installment of “Gecko Husbandry Changes” contained interesting ideas and food for thought from the experts reflecting about how they’ve changed their husbandry in the past few years. Below, another four gecko keepers share their responses. More

    Gecko Husbandry Changes – Part 1

    We’re all familiar with the steep learning curve a novice reptile keeper experiences when learning how to properly care for the first reptile:  I bought my first leopard gecko at a big chain pet store and kept it on 2″ of sand in a 10 gallon tank before she needed a vet visit for worms and impaction. Learn how known breeders have changed this year. More

    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. More

    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. More

    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.

    Three to Get Ready: Ptychozoon

    There has been much interest lately in the genus Pytchozoon, which can be as difficult to acquire as to pronounce (TY-ko-zone –the “P” is silent). There are 8 species of Pytchozoon, more commonly known as the “flying gecko” or “Parachute gecko”, though generally only P. Kuhli is found in the pet trade. What could fail to fascinate about a gecko that can fly? Though of course, more correctly, it glides, space permitting.

    Readers’ Questions Answered: Genetics and Diet

    After a long hiatus, we bring back our “Readers’ Questions Answered”. In the past we have had 2-3 people respond to each question. This time around, the single responses we got were so good that we left it at that. If you have questions you would like answered, please submit them and we will publish them in the near future!

    Three to Get Ready: Hemidactylus

    The publication last month of a “Three to Get Ready” focusing on viper geckos, Hemidactylus imbricatus, sparked a desire from one reader for us to do an article focusing on the entire Hemidactylus genus. Your wish is our command! Hemidactylus is a genus of over 90 species, many of which go by the common name “house gecko” because of their ability to flourish in human occupied space, and, as you’ll read below, new species are being discovered all the time.

    Review of Gargoyle Geckos by P. de Vosjoli et. al.

    One of the classic books about Rhacodactylus geckos was published in 2003 by Philippe de Vosjoli, Allen Repashy and Frank Fast. It quickly sold out and was soon outdated because of the wealth of new discoveries about the geckos of this genus. The authors decided to write a new guide in several volumes, each volume dedicated to a different Rhacodactylus species.
