I am working on the next update already and will start posting the first of the new ones to my website in the few days. It takes some time to take the photos, select the photos, crop them, and resize them so they are ready to be posted. What I have been doing recently is getting a batch of photos ready to be posted, and then posting some to my website each day (usually when drinking my coffee in the morning!). Then I post here when the update is 100% completed.

Our breeding season for the leopard geckos is nearly over. There are only a few more females that are still laying eggs, but most of the leopards are being cooled now. Our knobtails have also finished they breeding season, and we will start them cooling in a couple weeks. Some of our fat tails are cooled now, but others started ovulating a month ago, so we are getting a good number of eggs now. We should have a lot of baby fat tails hatching around Christmas! That will be a nice treat for the winter when everything else is cooled and less active!

9/22/10 - Welcome to our new website! We are happy to announce our new website is here with new features and a new look! This project has been in the works for literally the past year, and we are happy to have it finally completed. We still have a bunch of little odds and ends to finish on the website to make it perfect, but it is 90% there. So what do you think of our new website? Please let me know if you have any comments, find anything that doesn't work, or have any suggestions on how to make it better and more user friendly. Most of the old pages are here, but it may take a little while for everyone to get used to the new navigation.

I will miss our old site! It was a good one that served us well for 8 years! But it was time for a unpgrade, and we are very happy with the new site.

Special thanks to Brittney Gougeon from www.reptilecreative.com for her work on our website. She is a great designer, very creative, extremely knowledgeable about Dreamweaver, and did a fantastic job on our website. I am amazed that after she has designed so many reptile websites each one still has an original, distinctive look. I am just not that creative! :) I highly recommend her if you need any website design work done.

Thanks to everyone who purchased geckos from us last weekend at the Reptile Super Show in San Diego. We had a great time at the show, and we brought our 7 month old son Andrew as well. This was his first 2-day long reptile show, and he had fun at the show playing in his playpen and watching people go by.

The breeding season is going very well. We have hatched a lot of great leopard geckos and fat tail geckos so far, and many more to come. I am still waiting for the first of the 2010 knobtails to hatch, but that should be within a week or so. This year we are hatching Nephrurus amyae, wheeleri, levis, and deleani. We are actually having very good production with our deleani this year . I had two females that did not want to get cooled over the winter, they chose to instead lay fertile eggs each month all winter! That was a nice surprise, and we will have finally some deleani to offer for sale this year.

6/2/10 - We are now on Facebook! Click on the link below to see our page and become a fan. I will be posting updates there on what I am doing, new projects, what is hatching, etc. You can see photos there of a Striped Oreo Fat Tail Gecko we just hatched last week.

5/3/10 - I am back from my trip. The first of the new geckos in this update have been posted. I had hoped to get them all posted while I was away, but I wasn't able to get as much work done on the update as I had planned. I will be posting more new geckos to the available pages each day over the next few days. I will post again when they are all posted. In total there are approximately 125 new geckos in this update.

I am a bit behind on emails right now, but I will be working on answering those between updates to the website.

4/27/10 - I will be away for the next 6 days visiting family for my sister's wedding in New Jersey. This will be an interesting trip...our first time traveling with a nearly 5 month old baby! Hopefully Andrew falls asleep and handles it well. Andrew is the "Head Usher" for this wedding, and has a cute little tux to wear. I'll have to post a photo of him in his tux when I get back.

I have been taking photos of geckos this week, and will be working on the update while I am away. There are around 100 new geckos in this update, including some really cool and rare ones! Hopefully I can get my computer online and may post the update before I get back on Monday. I am not sure of my email access while I am away, but I should be able to check email at some point. If I don't get to answer emails while I am away I will answer them when I get back.

I am always reachable by phone, and will have my phone with me while away. You can reach me while I am away at our normal phone number. My next day shipping packages will be Monday May 3.

4/6/10 - Seventy new geckos were posted to the available pages. The new geckos include Nephrurus amyae (both hypos and non hypos), RADAR hets, Snow Blizzard het Diablo Blanco, Snow Tremper het Diablo Blanco, RAPTORs, Giant Mack Snow Tremper Albino, Blizzard, Tremper Albinos, Tremper Sunglows, APTORs, Enigmas from our Enigma Wild Caught Bloodline project (really cool - check them out!), RAPTORs het Diablo Blanco, Blazing Blizzards het Diablo Blanco, Snow Tremper Albinos, Super Hypo Tangerines, Super Snow, Bell Albinos, Bell Sunglows, Red Stripes, Blazing Blizzards, Enigma Rainwater Albino, Diablo Blanco, Giant RAPTOR, and a Giant Albino.

Offspring from Godzilla will soon be available to those people on the waiting list. Let us know if you would like to be included on the waiting list.

This is a busy time of the year with setting up breeding groups, and we have already had the first leopard gecko, fat tail gecko, and knobtail gecko hatchlings of the year. Our fat tails are doing very well and so far we have already hatched Caramel Albinos, Het Caramels, Patternless, and Amelanistic (albino). We should have a lot of exciting hatchlings to offer later this year.

Our knobtails are also doing well, and we have had a good (winter) season breeding Nephrurus deleani. I had a few female deleani that started laying eggs in the late fall when I was ready to cool all my knobtails. I didn't cool them and they did very well laying eggs each month over the winter (and are still laying eggs now). Our levis and wheeleri females all started laying eggs this past week, and our first eggs from our amyae should be coming soon.

Leopard gecko projects are also looking great this year. If all goes well I will start selling Bell Blazing Blizzards later this year, and I we should have one or two other new morphs to sell later this year. Sorry, no hints! :)

Here are a couple photos of some awesome new breeders we are adding to our groups this year.

The male to the right is the reddest SHT we have ever hatched, and should produce some awesome babies! We are also using him to brighten our Bell Sunglows and Rainwater Sunglows. You can see how red he is by comparing the color on the body and head to the color on the tail.
I just love the orange jungle patterning on this Tremper Enigma! We hatched him from one of our Sykes Emerine projects.

I'll be at the Herp World Expo show this coming weekend in San Mateo. Hope to see you there! Check out the shows page on our website for more details.

The Hamm show is approaching quickly, but there is still time to place an order for Hamm.

2/23/10 - In addition to reptiles, I am also interested in carnivorous plants, specifically American Pitcher Plants (Sarracenia). Over the years I have amassed a fantastic collection of all species, and many spectacular hybrids. We usually sell divisions of the more common species of carnivorous plants at reptile shows, and the harder to find cultivars are sold at carnivorous plant society meetings, or traded to get some new plants.

This is the time of the year that we are transplanting our plants and we have new divisions to offer for sale, including some of the rare cultivars that sell quickly! Here is our growlist with prices and current availability. Grow List Link More plants will be added to the list as we continue to divide our collection. Let us know if you are interested in any plants on the list with no price listed. We can check our collection for current availability. It is possible that divisions may be available but we haven't divided that clone yet.

We are able to ship them within the United States only, no exceptions. Protected species (oreophila, rubra jonesii, and rubra alabamensis) can only be shipped within California.

You can see more photos of various species and hybrids of American Pitcher Plants on this page: Sarracenia Photo Finder
