    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.

    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

    Reptiles: An Artistic Perspective

    The natural world has always been an unparalleled source of inspiration to me. It has become a driving force in my artwork and I find myself returning again and again to depicting natural subject matter. Growing up my family encouraged and embraced my love for nature and I constantly endeavored to learn as much as I could about the animals I encountered. To learn more about the animals I loved so much I attended dozens of conservation-oriented nature camps, visited natural history museums, and pored over as much information as I could get my hands on.
