Tiny, Lewis and Bertha

New pictures of Tiny (7grams), Lewis (now 31 grams) and Bertha (28grams)






Lewis


And Lewis and Bertha. I have separated them because since I got my scale Bertha is underweight to be breeding.

I don't find it hard to take care of them, their a lot less work then say a hamster or a gerbil and they don't require as much attention.

Oh really! When we were looking for lizards we would need to do lots of things for them. LOTS of things.

Well depending on what reptile or lizard you are looking into keeping you may or may not need a variety of things. Lizards like bearded dragons and iguanas need special lighting and large enclosures.

I fine that created geckos are one of the best lizards for beginners and more experienced reptile keepers. An adult gecko is happy in a 20 gallon tall tank with live or fake plants. They eat fruits and a premade diet can be purchased for them. This diet comes in powered form so all you have to do is mixed it with water. It is a complete diet meaning you don't have to feed bugs

They're great little geckos and very soft too....

Oh wow, those are so cool! So geckos don't need special lighting? That's why I love my boas, they are such low maintenance. Those darn UVA/B lights get expensive after a while... especially when you need 7 of them every 6 months. I spend more money on my turtles than I do on myself haha.


Your geckos are super cute though. Step son was looking at the pics with me, and now he wants one, lol.

Crested geckos don't need any special lighting but a UV (I think its UV) doesn't hurt esp. if you are suing live plants.

That's one of the reasons I love my snake she doesn't need any special lighting

Haha, my crested gecko always sleeps under the paper towels too . He started doing it when he was about a year old and it's become his usual sleeping spot.

Yes, reptiles are very cool!
There's an awesome mountain dragon at work, he looks so relaxed, his eyes look half closed when he's on his branch relaxing, and he really looks like he's saying "yeaaaah man, I love sundays" haha

This is random but can you spay or neuter geckos?

I do not believe you can.... although it may be possible it would be a risky procedure on such a small and delicate animal.
