    Default New Gecko Owner

    Hi all! Thought I'd better introduce myself, Iíve been lurking and posting a little here and there for a while. I have pictures of my animals but Iíll add them later when I am home from work.

    So around a year ago I got a carolina corn snake from a pet store, I have always adored snakes and I was finally old enough and in a stable enough condition money-wise to take the plunge. He was my first reptile and I absolutely adore him, heís such a friendly little guy and so active <3 Unfortunately, heís what I like to call Ďnomadicí at the moment (he escaped shortly after I introduced him to his bioactive enclosureÖ Iím actively trying to catch him at the moment) but his name is Romeo and I love him.

    Recently I rescued 3 giant pacific geckos, they were from an organisation that would have had to euthanise them if they didnít find homes, I did a LOT of research beforehand, but thereís very little information on them as most sites talk about marginata care but not vorax, so I have had to work out a few things myself. Iíve never owned geckos before, but they are amazing little creatures and I love them all so much. Itís been a real learning curve and I donít think you ever stop learning new things in this hobby! The two female adults are approx. 4/5 years old and their names are Mohanna and Bambi. Mohanna is chill and Bambi is freaking psycho and nothing like her namesake! Then I have a baby whom belongs to one of them (Iím not sure who) called Jiyah.

    The newest arrival is Lucio, who is also the baby of one of the adults, but again, not sure who. He was Ďfoundí recently in the seemingly empty enclosure he was being kept in.
    None are handle-able as yet, but I am working on them. They are all a lot calmer and less flighty than they were when I first got them.

    Anyway, sorry about the huge post, I could talk about them all dayÖ Just wanted to say hi, and I look forward to seeing and learning about all your geckos!

    You've got quite the crew there!

    I can't tell what genus all 4 are from your photos. How about sharing that?

    Hehe thanks!

    I was told they were Gehyra Vorax, but I'm aware of the current geyhra vorax/marginata debate, so who knows?
