Beloved Gecko: Dekstest

One day, I went to an exotic reptile expo. There I saw a Crested Gecko. I had never seen one before, and didn’t even know they existed. I thought that the only geckos out there were Leopard Geckos. I was wrong, obviously. Well anyway, I held one and completely fell in love with the species.

Beloved Gecko: The Amazing Bunnyman

Many years ago, I purchased a Sunglow male leopard gecko from reptile breeder Garrick DeMeyer. I loved this gecko from the first time I saw his picture online, and knew I had to have him. When he arrived, I was ecstatic, as he was just as beautiful as in the picture. He was about 80g when he arrived, and was quite terrified to say the least.

Beloved Gecko: Eragon

The year was 2004. I was a “veteran” leopard gecko owner of one year, and after reading endlessly on gecko forums about breeders’ successes, I decided that I was ready to breed geckos. I also decided to buy my first gecko from a breeder and have it shipped to me.
