  • Hello there!

    I've been wanting a crested gecko for a while. I had a gecko (I believe a day gecko) when I was a kid (like...3ish) but i don't remember it much. I adore geckos, but cresteds are the ones that appeal to me the most.

    I currently have two dogs, but no reptiles. I work part-time in a zoo and care for several herps and other small animals, including 2 crested geckos. Other species I care for include hognose snakes, Kenyan sand boas, Honduran milksnakes, a ball python, leopard geckos, bearded dragons, blue tongue skink, prehensile tail skink, tiger salamanders, a newt, Madagascar cockroaches, Emperor scorpions, a tarantula, a few frogs and toads, rabbits, prairie dog, hedgehog, chinchilla, and a cockatiel. I also work part-time in a vet clinic. We mostly do dogs and cats, but get an exotic in from time to time. I'm in a zoo science program, too, working towards my second bachelor's degree. I just finished the herp class last semester, and that's when I was reminded of the awesomeness that is geckos

    I hope to get a crested soon - as in, within the next couple weeks. So I'm vamping up the research so I can do a good job of keeping my own. I'm also considering used my future crested gecko for my research project in my animal behavior class this semester. It can be as simple as an observational study describing the behavior, but I was thinking about trying something along the lines of determining which color of light affects night-time behavior the least and most. Not completely set on it yet, though, just brainstorming.

    As I said, I also have two dog. I competing with them in various dog sports, including conformation, rally obedience, lure coursing, and soon traditional obedience. My boxer is semi-retired and only does lure coursing now. My smooth collie is my obedience/conformation dog (though he does do lure coursing) as well as my service dog. I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I can guarantee you that my crested WILL have a Who-related name

    So - that's me in a nutshell. I'm pretty open, so feel free to ask anything


    Oh, pictures of me don't exist, so you're going to have to settle for the dogs

            Haha, I don't He gets bathed every 1-2 weeks since he's a service dog. I really would NOT want to deal with that much hair that often! I dogsat half a dozen rough collies for 6 months the summer before last, and I decided I really, REALLY like the short hair
