    Gecko Time: Gecko Hybridization

    I'm the one who bought the pretty hybrid in this article! I had him for many years. His name was Hermoso. He was so orange! And very tame. My best gecko ever.

    Still searching for food after eating

    Your gecko juvie looks great and healthy! By the way, you can put all your other animals into the "signature." I figured out how to do that, too ;) Then, this appears in every post you make automatically. You simply go to the top right hand corner where your avatar is, click on your login name...

    Still searching for food after eating

    Well, it's a reptile, so don't expect any feelings like dogs have for humans. But I'm sure if you fill your hand with mealworms and leave it in the cage, your Leo will come and sit on your hand to eat ;)

    New leopard gecko mom

    I'm glad he's doing better! I used to clean my cages with Lysol, and I put the geckos in different tanks until theirs were dried out and didn't smell anymore. But that only works if you have several cages. I could rotate pretty well; I used to have 48 glass tanks and about six big, wooden cages...

    Which morph?

    Hi, your English is great! I'm German, and English is also my second language. I second that; the top is a Tangerine and the bottom a Normal (wild-caught type). But that's their phenotype, meaning this is what they look like. You won't know their genotype unless you breed them, because they...

    Elderly Leopard Gecko Surgery

    Hi Alix, if he's 20 years old, I would spare him the surgery and let him live until quality of life declines, and then have him humanely euthanized. Sorry to say that, but he's had an amazing long life and been loved. If you pay a lot to have the surgery and he suffers and dies, you haven't...

    Unexpected Eggs — How am I Doing?

    The important thing is, what are you going to do with the babies IF you let them hatch. Here's a cheap Hovabator. That's like the one I had; worked like a charm. But your female may lay 2 eggs every 3 weeks for the rest of the year, so if you don't have enough cages to keep those hatchlings...

    Help please - Leopard Gecko tank

    Yes, heat mats exist in different sizes for differently sized tanks. I had the 8 inch small ones for the 10-gallon tanks, and the next high size of UTH for the 20-gallon tanks. You have to be careful, because if the heat mat is too big, the glass can crack! I had that happen once; it just got...

    Stick tail?

    Without a fecal smear, you can't treat it, because you don't know her condition. Some breeders, especially in Europe, do annual treatments of all their geckos, for example with Panacur, to deworm them and as a precaution. I've used Panacur before, but some of my geckos had worms, and they had...

    No need to treat water?

    I always used tap water, too.

    Advice on Juveniles

    Yes, that's normal. When they are shedding, they are eating their molt, so they might not be as hungry as usual.


    Welcome! I like Peach :) I also started with leopard geckos in 2008 and then went on to AFT's and crested geckos, gargoyles, chahoua, and bearded dragons. When I'm looking back, though, leopard geckos were always my favorites.

    two new cresties from the Gilpins...

    Got a package this morning :) This is Audrey, all fired up and pretty: This is Maribel (just firing up and mad after being unpacked...): Hope one of them will be a boy, and one a girl ;) Chrissy

    Help with morphs please.

    Dalmatian and Flame, I would say... nice cresties! :)

    Crested gecko

    Awesome :) Chrissy
