Golden Geckos

We just received our Golden Geckos! These guys get there name from the yellow and golden colored scales. Golden Geckos originate from the tropical forests of Vietnam. They can reach a length of 8 inches. They’re insectivores, eating crickets, superworms, mealworms (moderation) and small roaches. All of their food needs to be gutloaded and dusted for calcium and multivitamins. The habitat needed for these guys should be a vertical space.

They require 60% humidity, but the cage can be allowed to … Continue reading

What’s A Tokay Gecko?

A Tokay Gecko is one of the largest Geckos in the world. Their name comes from the unique vocalizations they make during mating season or when startled. These guys can be very territorial and aggressive, but make great ornamental pets for intermediate owners. Most Tokay’s you find in your local pet stores are wild caught. Their diet consists mainly of insects or other small invertebrates, but they can eat small mammals as well! If it fits in it’s mouth… it’s food. Tokay Geckos can be tamed but it takes time and patience… and iron fingers. Come down today to see our selection of Tokays and many other geckos!

Look! Another Crestie!

These guys are still babies and have a lot of growing and learning to do. They’re very docile. This little guy didn’t want to get off my hand during our little photoshoot. When interacting with your pet Crestie, you’ll learn that they love to jump and once they’ve found their target, they rarely miss it! Careful though. If your pet doesn’t quite make his or her landing, it can be fatal for them. They’re usually nocturnal tree dwellers and spend most of their time resting under leaves until nightfall where they then spend their nights foraging for bugs and other tasty, crunchy things.
