    Housing Your Hatchlings

    Among the many cautions given to prospective gecko breeders is the one about having enough space to house offspring. Since a single female gecko can produce anywhere from 0-20 or more hatchlings in a single season, it’s a very important consideration. New breeders are advised to “start small” and plan ahead for an unknown result. This article will detail and display some relatively inexpensive housing options for a variety of gecko species. More

    Book Review: The Leopard Gecko Advisor

    Ray Roehner of Designer Geckos understands that there is more than one way to successfully care for leopard geckos. Presumably that’s why he calls his leopard gecko care book “The Leopard Gecko Advisor” rather than something like “Leopard Gecko Care”. He also realizes that novices need clear, step by step instructions for husbandry that will allow them to succeed immediately. “The Leopard Gecko Advisor” is such a book, and more. More

    Reflections of a Multi-Species Gecko Keeper

    I am Yann Fulliquet, 37 years old. I live in Switzerland and work in a rehabilitation clinic as a nurse.

    I am rather new to this hobby as I only have been into it for 4 years now, but I have been keeping fish for 19 years, with a primary interest in South American catfish and cichlids. My interest in reptiles started around that time too, but for a long time I thought they were much more difficult to care for than fish so I stayed away but read about them periodically until I finally decided to start with them.

    Leopard Geckos: A Hobby Developing to an Artistic Science

    Eublepharis macularius, the leopard gecko, is an animal we have all come to know and love. They are easy to care for and make great pets, but what has become so eye catching about them is the vast diversity of their appearance. Through the many decades of captive breeding of these animals, several traits have randomly mutated and popped out, such as the three strains of albinism (Tremper, Bell, and Rainwater.) Other traits have affected the visual appearance of the eye or the pigmentation patterns on the body. For years now, these traits have been mislabeled as ‘genes’ due to seemingly following simple inheritance patterns (aside from polygenic traits.) The truth is, we have no idea what these traits are. The fact that they are inherited consistently and reproducibly, however, does mean they are part of the genetic material of the animal. More

    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
