Brand New Gecko Room, Finally!

My husband and I purchased a house in March and I have converted the second bedroom into a reptile room. We went to Lowe’s and bought some storage racks for the Kritter Keepers and other tanks. Having this room will make life so much easier for me and for the geckos. I have cats and… Read more »

Reflections on the 2011 Breeding Season

This year has been an incredible learning experience. It’s amazing how far the hobby/business has come so quickly. Last year (the 2010 season) I only had one pair and really didn’t intend to breed. In fact, when Momma laid her first pair of eggs, I wasn’t even going to incubate them. My husband (who generally… Read more »

Vending at the Northeast Reptile Expo in Portland, ME

Earlier this month (December 4th, 2011), I vended at the Northeast Reptile Expo in Portland, ME. I had a great time there, it was hands-down the best show I vended so far. I didn’t expect to sell very many geckos at this one because I knew that there were going to be a lot of… Read more »

Vending at the Manchester, New Hampshire Reptile Expo

On October 9th, 2011, I had my first vending experience. I vended at the Manchester, NH Reptile Expo and had a great time. I didn’t sell very many geckos (3 geckos and a couple of bags of crested gecko diet) but I had a great time anyway. It was a good learning experience for me…. Read more »

The first eggs from the Cera and Spot pairing hatched a couple of days ago. They produced two very pretty babies. Both of them are partial pinners and look like they will develop into nice harlequins as they mature. I have no idea yet what color they will be but both parents are a nice… Read more »

Eventful Breeding Day

Yesterday, I found a hatchling wandering around my incubator. I got the hatchling, “Gecko 15,” all set up into a kritter keeper and went on with the rest of my day. I got some tanks cleaned, some new cage decorations set up, etc. Here’s a picture of him in the incubator. This guy sure knows… Read more »

New Eggs

So I found two new eggs from Pumpkin and Zeus the other day. I now have four eggs incubating from that pair and 15 eggs total. I lost one during that super heatwave we had 🙁 I did everything I could but the AC just could not keep up. Thankfully that hard work paid off… Read more »

Gorgeous New Red Girl!

I just picked up this beautiful red girl. I can’t wait to see what she produces! She came to me already gravid so all of her eggs this year will have nice little “surprises” in them. Next year, I will breed her to either Zeus or Spot. In other news, Momma laid two more eggs… Read more »

And the Pinstripe Project Begins…

A couple of nights ago, I found some eggs from Pumpkin. She bred with Zeus about 5-6 weeks ago. They are her first ever clutch and they look great 🙂 I’m so excited to see what hatches out from those. That brings my total number of eggs to 12 (in addition to my 26 living,… Read more »
