    Eggs?! Help!

    Breeding season for most geckos is in full swing and gecko forums are full of anxious questions about eggs and incubation: Is my moldy/dented/shriveled/green and gooey egg OK? Why haven’t I gotten any fertile eggs yet? When will my gecko ovulate/lay her eggs? When will my eggs hatch? Face it, we’re much more broody about those eggs than the geckos.

    Readers’ Non-Questions “Answered”

    Our April Readers’ Questions have been answered! Take a peak at the results.

What else can I do? More

    The Chronicles of a New Gecko Breeder

    I first started breeding Leopard Geckos in 2000 in my dorm room at NYU. I always had a fascination with reptiles and fish and wanted to pursue a degree in Biology in hopes of getting my PhD in herpetology. However, after realizing that life in college was hard enough and the PhD would cost me far more than I would ever really make, I settled into a degree and career in IT which came easier to me than Chemistry. My love for reptiles remained and to my roommate’s dismay, the rack in our closet got bigger.
