Aug 2018 UPDATES

Well firstly ... this has been a crazy season!

I am working to upgrade my crested gecko quality in order to work on a high contrast high quality line. So a few of the current breeders (both male and female) will be listed as available BUT not all and the females that WILL be listed will not be listed until they are done their breeding season. Some will be kept even after based on what they produce.

Meg is a full pin so she will be staying on, as will Morticia since this is her first year breeding. There are some females (or possible females ... can't quite tell yet) that have yet to grow big enough to do breeding with, so those will be waiting about 2 years yet. I do have 2 females on the way, plus a new male to suit the better / higher quality project. Fingers crossed things move along as I am trying and hoping to get them to.

As for eggs, I have 3 hatchlings that came out of the Sam x Meg pairing this year (Devon, Karmel and Ripley), but the rest of her eggs to date have not produced anything. Moriticia's so far have been the same. The only ones I can say safely that will hatch with great results are the ones from Lady x Po pairing. I am not 100% sure about Lily's or Ruby's yet, but this is really their first year breeding. We shall see ...

As for other things, we have started carrying products and equipment and supplies ... authorized reseller for Mist King, Zoo Med, SunBlaster, and lots more! The site has a store section that is slowly being added to, but no real sales there yet. We did sell a bunch of stuff at the last Gatineau Reptile Expo, so hopefully I can get more stock to take and sell. As a reseller the minimum order goes up, but I can get stuff for my own use that way too.

There is talk that the hatching/egg issues are global ... which means it is not weather related (way hotter and humid than previously) ... some are thinking it may be related to a food blend since that would be globally related. That is definitely something to dig into deeper.

Well, time to add more items to the store!
