I'm Wyz

I'm from Montreal.

I've started in the hobby 3 years ago with a Tibetian Frog eyed gecko.

We're actualy keeping many snakes and lizards.

In the gecko family we have
2.2 Goniurosaurus Luii
1.2.1 Goniurosaurus Araneus
1.0 Uroplatus Henkeli
1.4.1 Crested
1.2 Leos

In the past we also kept U. Phantasticus and Pictus Geckos.

Looking forward for some interesting reading on this forum

Nice collection you've got. Welcome to the forums...

07-25-2005, 12:56 PM
whoa.. thats a pretty nice collection. how do you house them? rack systems for the snakes?

At first we were more into lizards using only natural setups and large cages.

Then we got more and more into snakes but without putting aside lizards.

All our lizards are kept pretty natural and in good size cages or tanks.

- Cave gex are kept by trio in 30 inches sliding door tanks. With a 18 inches submersed hide wich increases living and walking space alot.

- Our U. Henkeli is alone in a setup resembling our crested trio setup.

- Frilled in a large cage

- Veiled in a 2 x 2 x 4 cage.

As for the snakes... many are in racks (mostly cornsnakes).

Pythons and Boas are in cage, not allways nice looking ones since cleaning after big pythons can sometimes be messy :)

If we had the space and the time, all our herps would be in decorative environnement.

Here are some pics.



Frilled (sorry for the numbers, I had done that pic for someone)

New cage for our trio of Amazon Tree Boa
One hot side, one warm side. There are hold in the separation so they can choose the environnement they prefer.

Veiled cage + sinaloan tank (top right)

4 feet cages for large boids.. on top I had panther chameleon

Cornsnake racks (old racks) now their bigger and taller

The cricket room

That's about it.. there's more but I'd look like a freak ;)

It's not too bad :)

It's closed.. I have air sponges and my crix are only gived dry food. Water is given seperatly so I don't have any moisture smell.

It does smell a bit when you go in the room, but nothing close to what you must be imagining :) I've been breeding them for 2 years, so I had chances to adjust and find good tricks to cut down the smell.

Giving them dry food instead of fresh veggies is THE most important way to cut down the smell because it's not really the crix that cause the smell it's what you have in their enclosures.

Here are two last pics... they are new racks for cornsnakes (babies to adult)

And the 2nd pic is what I call the "hope rack" :) I built it to keep any keepers we would have :)

It's got 90 tubs.. But it won't be used to it's full capacity this year as our boa and python breeding attemps didn't work. Let's hope we'll do better next year n that field.



I'm done with my pics now ;)
