    A Day in the Life as a Vendor

    Reptile expos are a wonderful opportunity to see a lot of species and morphs, meet breeders who may otherwise be only a name on a website and, most important, to buy some new pets. At the early stages of our reptile keeper “lives”, we endeavor to learn how to vend at a show and how to effectively attend one. As we gain experience, we continue to challenge ourselves to become even better vendors and customers. More

    Reptile Forum Profile: Geckoforums.net

    Geckoforums.net has long been one of the premier forums focusing on geckos, leopard geckos in particular, as opposed to reptiles in general. I have been a member of Geckoforums.net since its inception in 2006 and am pleased to have the current owner, Thad Unkefer, provide some information about this valuable resource. More

    In Search of Uroplatus henkeli

    Madagascar has been on my list of places to go and see the wildlife for a long while now and this year I finally got the chance! The organisation I would be helping to collect data for is called ‘Operation Wallacea’, a charity that has base camps in nine countries worldwide. I would be going out to the dry forest region east of Mahajanga, to be staying in a research camp and two satellite camps just outside the village of Mariano. More

    Reptile Forum Profile: GeckoTalk.com

    Reptile forums remain one of the most common and rewarding ways for people to learn about their geckos, talk about them, sell them and troubleshoot when there are problems. These forums range from large and active to species specific. Reptile forums are easy to create and sometimes seem to spring up like mushrooms. Only a relative few, though, are able to maintain interest and an active membership. More

    L. williamsi: Learning from Failures

    It’s natural for gecko keepers, like anyone else, to publicize their successes and avoid discussion of their failures. Failures are frustrating and even somewhat embarrassing. Discussing them publicly also leaves one open to criticism. Despite having all these feelings, I’ve decided to write about my failure this past year to successfully breed Lygodactylus williamsi –electric blue day geckos.

    Interview With Jabberwock Reptiles Owner Stephen Ayer

    Opportunities to purchase reptiles, feeders and supplies in person in a store are largely limited to big box chain pet stores and large, well-known, privately owned stores.  Globalization, the Internet and the economy have made any other option, such as the mom-and-pop reptile store, nearly an impossibility.  Despite these obstacles, Jabberwock Reptile Store owner Steve Ayer […] More

    Replicating Native Gecko Habitats

    Living in Albuquerque, I noticed that the terrain looks similar to that of the leopard gecko’s natural environment in Afghanistan. I was already interested in trying out a bioactive substrate for my terrarium, but I thought I could do better. I did some research on the climate and terrain to set up a similar habitat for my pets. I chose to simulate the alluvial soil found in Kabul, Afghanistan.

    Keeping Geckos in Extreme Climates

    Most of us are living in climates that are different than the native environments of many of the geckos we keep. When we set up our geckos in their homes we all face certain challenges particularly in providing the appropriate heat and humidity. In this article, Gecko Time looks at the even greater challenges facing keepers who live in extreme climates: very cold climates with dry heat that significantly reduces humidity, and very hot and humid climates.
