    Default Hello All


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all , my name is Enrico I am getting back into geckos and have been a reptile hobbyist for nearly 30 years, I was a member of the old IGS and at that time ( early 90's ) I had a fairly diverse reptile collection . I had lots of then uncommon geckos and other fun animals. Due to some health issues I essentially left the hobby . I kept a leopard Gecko Named Herculese and a CarpetDiamondX that was a gift from a friend but all other animals were rehomed at that time.

    About 6 years ago I decided to get back into the Hobby and began raising and Ultimately breeding retics, I realized I had really been missing the geckos though and last summer acquired some hatchling cresties that a friend was having a hard time getting going. This year I have babies hatching and have been blessed with some eggs that I believe will ultimately hatch from my U. Henkeli pair.

    I am looking very forward to continuing to learn about all these wonderful animals and re establishing contact with some good friends from the past, and meeting new ones along the way.
    Currently I have the following animals
    I have 17 cresties of various ages. ( 8 of which we hatched this year)
    1.1 U. Henkeli
    0.0.1 P. Standingi
    0.1 E . Macularius ( Not herculese )
    and as of 10:35 AM today o.o.2 Teratoscincus Keyserlingi

    I am planning on P. Rangei, U. Fimbriatus, Strophurus, and a few other projects in the near future as well as a few more Keyserlingi. I also would love to find C. Angulifer Angulifer again someday as they were a favorite of mine for sure

    Thank you all for this great place to hang out and continue learning.
    Thank you to Nathan for the awesome Keysers
    6.7.8 ( and counting) R.Ciliatus
    0.1.1 E. Macularius
    1.1 U.Henkeli
    1.1 U. Fimbriatus
    1.1 U.Giganteus
    0.0.1 P. Standingi
    1.1.2 T.Keyserlingi
    1.1 T. Scincus
    1.1 T. Roborowskii
    1.1 R. Auriculatus
    Hoping for P.Rangei soon , very soon

    Welcome back to the hobby Enrico!
    I too had a small stint where I was reptile-less but have come back with even more passion.
    Hope to see you more on here as well as some photos. I love the unique species. I would love to get a few more myself. Hahahah!

    It's never too late to be back into the reptile world!!

    I find it so cool to keep many different types of geckos, in my country you ONLY find leopard geckos, cresteds and some phelsumas, and I am the ONLY person in my whole country that keeps fat tails, and that's it. I would LOVE to see Uroplatus here, I have only seen them on reptile shows when I come to the States once a year, I hope some day I can have one of those!! I am really into Uroplatus, Goniurisaurus, Naultinus and Nephrurus!!!

    I hope you enjoy the forum and feel comfortable to share some of your experience!
    Saskia!

    7.9.0 Eublepharis macularius - Leopard Geckos
