  • Welcome to my welcome thread!

    I guess haha. Hello, this is going to be long . My name is Joshua and I am from Los angeles California in the ghetto. but NOT me! ) I am 22 years young recently out of the marines into a apartment with my wife trying to juggle college and boredom. So I picked up a crested gecko while they were on sale at petco for 25 bucks! come to find out... screw petco! I instantly fell in love with cresties and bought 6 more from the gecko geek. then another from the pomona reptile show. I own in total 1 male 1 femal and 6 unsexed crested geckos. Also, all of their favorite friend, Krauzer, the most lovable normal ball python who will let them take a ride on his back. I am very excited to start reading everyones posts so i can steal the secrets! I hope to learn... and hopefully someone will eventually learn off of me... probably about something else ... like skydiving hahaha Oh I like skydiving and my wife and geckos. Maybe a kid if i ever get around to 'making' one haha anyways ill shut up for now and post pics as soon as i learn to take pictures. Take care everyone!

      Hello and welcome! You have some nice Geckos there. May I ask though what's wrong with your BP's neck? He doesn't look right in that photo. :|

            I too fell for cresties. Now i have 6 and planning soon to get way more LOL. Also love your ball python. Their all sooooo cute. This is a random story. I rescued ball pythons for about 5 years when i worked at petsmart way back when. I had i believe 18 and they will all my baby's. After each got to a healthy weight and were more human friendly (some got spooked easily) i found them all very good homes. The only thing that really ever bothered me was 1) petco sucked and never told anyone who bought snakes from them a darn thing. And 2) in order to get rid of them they would bring them over where i worked (with the fish and such) and leave them in an aisle in a fricken 10 pound plastic empty cat litter bucket. I wish always and forever that people would just take the time to learn what their getting before they jump in head first. LOL.

            p.s. Todays my birthday so i can rant if i want to .
