Plague House: A Breeder’s Nightmare

For years, the specter of the dreaded protozoan disease, cryptosporidiosis, has worried gecko owners.  “Crypto” is highly contagious, incurable, hard to kill and ultimately fatal.  A more detailed description is available in an article written in 2009 by Marcia McGuiness.   Unfortunately, this devastating disease has invaded my gecko population here at Geckcessories.

Give them Bread and Circuses!

His message was aimed at a Roman populace that cares only for the superficial entertainments of the age rather than engaging with the important issues of the time. You may take that politically wherever you want, but our perennial April contributor, Ben Bargen, is, as always, thinking about geckos.

How to Sell Your Geckos Revisited

In 2010 I wrote an article How to Sell Your Geckos in order to provide suggestions about venues for selling as well as recommendations for how sellers should approach the whole concept of selling an animal to someone as a pet.

Crested Gecko Wild Caught “Pure Bloodlines”

The New Caledonian crested gecko or eyelash gecko (Correlophus ciliatus) is a species of gecko native to southern New Caledonia. This species was thought extinct until it was rediscovered on an private expedition by Robert Seipp and Friedrich Wilhelm Henkle in 1994. Though the export of wild crested geckos is now prohibited, biologists like Robert and Henkle exported several specimens for study before New Caledonia stopped issuing permits to export the species. From these specimens, different breeding lines were established both in Europe and the United States.

Winter Feeding: Crested Gecko Diet Trials

Owning a decent-sized collection of crested geckos (Correlophus ciliatus) means that there is often a need to change up the types of food offered, especially during the colder winter months, when they may experience a short brumation period. As a result of the colder temperatures, there is usually a notable decline in the amount of food consumed overnight. This lack of appetite inspired me to try out some alternate food sources in an attempt to get them eating a normal amount again.
