    Quarantine, pathogens and parasites in captive reptiles

    I am very curious as to what various keepers use as best practice methods for quarantine and colony health. While it is commonly accepted that new caledonian geckos are simply not susceptible to these ailments, the reality is that they exist wether we acknowledge them or not. I regularly see...

    There has been a lot of recent research on obesity in captive reptiles and I really wonder how much good we are doing in the long run by letting our geckos get so big. I definitely have people regularly comment on the "slimness" of my leachies- and I know leachies are a pudgy species. But...

Well this morning when I was doing my rounds, I noticed Hazel had her mouth ajar and when I looked closer, she has a split lip. I know these guys can heal pretty well...

    Breeding season, start/end info

    So I just want to collect some more data here. I noticed this year that most of my geckos laid a dud clutch before they started laying good ones. I also had 2 girls this week lay single egg clutches when they had previously laid 2 egg clutches. It makes me wonder if my breeding season is winding...

    How to establish boundaries as a breeder without being a jerk

    Ok, so this is a rant about frustrating things that potential buyers do, while also trying to come to reasonable solutions. I get people ALL the time that message me saying they are "interested" in a specific gecko and then ask me 5000 questions. This morning, a guy was interested in 2 different...

    Egg cutting

The first baby hatched out (105 days) super fast and was moving around in the incubator a ton (I have a camera set up in my incubator, it was the middle of the night but it...

    Egg incubation time

    We know there is somewhat of a correlation between incubation temperature and duration, but has anyone else noticed a correlation between egg size when laid and incubation duration? Am I the only one that weighs my eggs when they are laid?
