    Lightbulb UIC - Uroplatus Information Center


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello Everyone!

    As James has mentioned in his "Uroplatus Resource" thread, we have a site that we hope will become the central hub for Uroplatus information.

    Uroplatus Information Center

    It is, as I'm sure it will always be, a work in progress, so please feel free to make suggestions on how we can improve the site.

    Now, the point of the site is to consolidate Uroplatus information into one centralized location, so if anyone is interested in submitting material, whether it be care sheets, images, articles regarding husbandry and breeding etc, it would be extremely helpful. Of course, we will give credit to all authors and contributors. We're not here to call this our own, rather, simply to make the information easily available to all who seek it.

    We're also looking for a few dedicated and experienced keepers who are interested in assisting us with other aspects of the site moving forward. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any further details.


    Thank you!

    Luis

    I would suggest that first and foremost you put up a quick homepage on that URL (even if it's just a picture or two with contact information and a basic sort of "mission statement" for the site). And get yourself an easy to remember free email address from yahoo or gmail, etc. Something along the lines of uroplatusinfo@yahoo.com for example. The easier it is for people to find you and send you info, the more likely it is to happen.

    We'll be posting a list of some of the topics an items we'll be asking for some help with. I've also asked the mods to Sticky this thread on the forum.

    Thanks again!

    I think in addition to caresheets I think if a studbook could be incorporated into the website it would be extremely beneficial to these geckos long term survival in captivity. Something that makes it easy for everyone who is breeding these guys to register animals. There used to be one for Cat Geckos...however that seems to have faded away. However I think if it coulkd be done properly, it would set the bar for not only other gecko species, but for the reptile industry as a whole.

    Also maybe have it so there could be an online breeder notebook log, where one could just type an observation from that day or somesort of update. Over time you would have a informative/historical journal.

    If you check on the Uroplatus Resource Thread, I think it was RiversideReptiles who mentioned how extremely difficult it would be to maintain this, and that the Cat Gecko one was a perfect example. It would need to be updated so many times, and every new owner would have to do it to continue, and they may not be interested.

    So have it a requirement to be listed as a breeder on that site to register their animals in the notebook/studbook. I imagine it wouldn't be that hard as long as you have a core group that is interested in keeping at least their animals recorded.

    What is the cat gecko database? I can't find anything on it but it's constantly mentioned here.

    As this seems to be a very popular idea, I have made this thread a Sticky so it doesn't get lost and we can keep everything related in this thread.


    I have a lot of ideas as this is something I have been considering myself for a long time. There will undoubtedly be problems and hurdles, but it is worth at least trying. The more people that get involved, the greater the chance of success.
    I will be willing to contribute in any way I can, just let me know what I can do.

    GEKKONIDAE UK IS ON AN INDEFINITE BREAK FROM HERPETOCULTURE.
    WEBSITE STILL ACTIVE FOR INFORMATION.
