The name of the site says it all…I am a GEEK about these geckos! Having been a reptile enthusiast since I was a small child, my hubby thought he would score some huge points by getting me my first crested gecko (Maka) as an anniversary gift. If he knew then what he knows now I wonder if he might have just dropped the dime & bought me something shiny instead! My love & fascination with the species was instant. I flooded myself with every ounce of information I could find about them…the more I learned, the more I loved them! Soon, 1 gecko turned into 2…then 6…then 20. Eventually we had to convert a room in our home to accommodate all of them. What is normally an office or spare bedroom in another home is the “gecko room” in ours, and it now hosts a wide variety of geckos. Crested geckos may have started the gecko fascination, but it didn’t end there. We currently keep crested, gargoyle, chahoua (mainland and pine island), leachianus, eurydactylodes (agricolae and vieillardi), and a handsome collection of micro geckos including mourning, typus, s. elegans, s. macrolepis, s. argus, gonatodes fuscus, viper, and helmeted geckos…plus our 2 pet super giant leopard geckos just for fun
I have spent many years building up my colony…hand-picking specimens based not only on color & pattern, but on structure & personality as well. When selecting breeding pairs, I keep ALL of these factors in mind, to produce lovely, well-built animals who are stunning to view, and are also a joy to keep as a pet or companion animal. My goal in operating this site is not only to offer quality animals, but quality advice and information as well. I keep information current, and instructions as simple as possible, but if you have any questions or would like more information about these fascinating creatures or are just curious if a gecko would be the right pet for you, please feel free to contact me. I’m always happy to help…as I said before, I’m a geek when it comes to these critters…I’ll never turn down an opportunity to talk about them even more! I look forward to sharing my geckos with the community for many years to come, and to possibly adding some new species to get “geeky” about in the very near future! Thanks for visiting thegeckogeek.com!!!
