Hello everyone, this will be my first article for Gecko Time. My name is Gonçalo Pereira and I am the owner of the DartGeckos project, from Portugal. DartGeckos is a hobby that I have had since 2010 when I bought my first leopard gecko, a High Yellow morph. More
An important consideration for prospective gecko breeders is whether they’ll be able to sell the geckos they produce. Gecko Time was curious about how successful breeders of the less common gecko species are in selling their hatchlings since they often require more specialized care than the more commonly available species such as leopard geckos.

We admit to being quite surprised at the general consensus among breeders of rare geckos as to their success in selling. More

Here is what she had to say about goReptiles and her projects.
Over the years, I have worked with a number of terrestrial gecko species. My favorite of these is the helmeted gecko of Northern Africa. They have a very unique look and make up for their small size with a big personality. More
