    Healing through Art and Reptiles

    It often goes without saying, but I had a rough childhood. Regardless, two things kept me going
    through it all; art and animals. As a result, my passion for art and the animals in my life have always been intertwined and fed off one another. It all started in my youth with a fascination for dragons. More

    Crested Gecko Breeding Revisited

    Let’s talk a little about Crested Gecko breeding. Many new breeders or hobbyists in the Crested Gecko world will simply put any male and female together, just hoping to produce babies. There’s no rhyme or reason to the pairings and the results are generally a mix of whatever morphs are being paired. More

    Improvements on a Tub

    Tub or viv? It’s one of the questions that comes up time and time again in the reptile hobby.  It’s a question that polarizes some keepers and most people will have an opinion or preference one way or the other.  Indeed, Gecko Time has previously covered the topic as part of the Pros and Controversies series, with readers on both sides of the fence.  More

    Banded Gecko Oddysey

    I first saw the banded gecko in a book my parents got for me as a gift from Phoenix, AZ. The book was called 50 common Reptiles & Amphibians of the Southwest and it showed the desert banded gecko. Fast forward another 3 years and we went to Arizona for vacation, where I got to see the desert banded gecko at the Phoenix Zoo. I fell in love after that moment, from that moment on till this day I’ve researched about this species hoping to buy some in the future. More

    Frog Eyed Gecko Care Sheet

    As someone who has several Frog-Eyed geckos and is an avid reptile enthusiast, I find the extreme lack of information about this species to be very upsetting. Most of the “care sheets,“ and I use that term loosely, that I have found through my hours upon hours of searching are at their core a revised leopard gecko care sheet. More

    How do Geckos Determine Sex?

    Most gecko species reproduce sexually and both a male and female are required for successful breeding. But how are the sexes produced? How does a gecko egg “know” to produce a male or female hatchling? Answering these questions depends upon which species of gecko you are talking about, because geckos have come up with a variety of ways to determine sex. More

    Escaped Geckos and Impressive Finds

    Gecko Time has gotten many frantic requests for assistance from people whose geckos have escaped their cages ever since running the article Find an Escaped Gecko in January 2010.  In addition to the understandable worry about re-locating a missing pet, there is usually tremendous concern about clutter in the house, cats, dogs and openings in walls or stairwells that will make the retrieval job more difficult.  Even the miraculous story of one of my geckos found after 2 years sojourn somewhere in the house doesn’t seem to help people feel better.  Though I can’t guarantee that a lost gecko can be found, I thought that a few more stories about miraculous gecko (and one non-gecko) finds might rekindle some hope.

    Stories on the Geckos of Mount Kinabalu

    Last year I spent 3 months carrying out nocturnal amphibian encounter surveys at varying elevations on Mount Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia. When the weather was suitable these surveys were carried out along a number of transects which represented a multitude of habitats on the mountain. Some of these were trails along rivers and others through varying densities of rainforest. One thing that I quickly learned is that due to the vast abundance of wildlife present at Mount Kinabalu National Park, I encountered much more than amphibians on these transects. The one group of animals that always brought a smile to my face when encountered were geckos and I’m going to share my experiences of them with you. More

    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.

    Gecko Time Wants to Know: African Fat Tail Geckos

    For many years it seemed as if African Fat Tail geckos were simply drab cousins of the much more popular leopard geckos.  With the advent of new morphs such as whiteout, zulu and oreo, the fat tail palette colors and patterns has exploded and their popularity has soared.  Despite this, it was very difficult to find people willing and able to answer some of Gecko Time’s questions about them.
