Feb 8 2017

So ... interesting feeding night tonight.

Twink has been flighty a bit more lately than normal .... and tonight she jumped and found my eye... it was closed but still. Most times my guys will jump on the camera eye ...but this was weird. I am wondering if I need to move her tank out of that spot.... maybe to my desk or my room ...

As for the babies, they seem to really be showing their personalities more and more. Syd keeps trying to be like the big boys... but is so tiny still. Freddie and Chance and Izzy all wanted to spend a few minutes out of their enclosures... so I guess I need to start taking time and handling them more often. A tamer gecko is more liked.

As for the chewers, we have put a trial test run flooring in with both Rudy and Bobbi. Instead of paper towels I have put a clear ridged shelf liner (from the dollar store) cut to the size of the floor. Hopefully  this will stop the chewing, and it can be cleaned for re-use. So far so good, but it is still early.

The ones that like to jump at every motion they see are now referred to as The Thud Club. That would be Rudy, Bobbi, Syd and Dakota mainly. I have found this to be a phase, but with this many babies it will be an ongoing phase.

I am getting more and more requests to get a vendors table for the Feb 26 expo in Downsview, but it will cost funds I simply do not have. It is $150 for just the table, not to mention gas both ways and food. I figure the total cost for the day would be about $250 all in. I need to make some money one way or another ....

Well I hope this has been a good update .... more next time!

Same gecko time ... same gecko channel ... or something like that LOL

New Year!

OK ... time for a new year update!

All the babies are still here .... and even Hayden is getting better. It might very well have been the warmer room or the larger enclosure ... or a combo of both ... no real idea, but he is doing better in the other room at least.

We are up to 3 sets of eggs from Lana X Sam and Cosmo X Rex ..... so hopefully the December clutch will hatch before too long. I will need to find a list of asexual dark style names soon ... I know there are some awesome resources out there....

I am hoping to get the time to make a DIY light box for photos. I need better pics to get better responses ... got the materials i need ... I just need to get to it ASAP. I am beginning to think I need to clone myself ... or something less drastic LOL

I am thinking of keeping Syd as my hold-back. It's not just cuz s/he is cute, but based on the crested gecko's size and the kink in the tail, it may be best. Seems to be taking a long time for him/her to gain any weight. He/She is still barely 2grams ... others born in July like Syd was are double that weight at least.

Well time to step off here for a bit .... I will post again soon with better updates....
