BG-Gecko = Brenda & Guus. We live in the Netherlands and started keeping and breeding geckos in 2006.
The first geckos we bought were leopard geckos, we fell in love immediately and within months our collection quickly expanded. We added Rhacodactylus, Nephrurus, Underwoodisaurus, Gekko, Diplodactylus, Uroplatus and many more to our collection.
By now, we have kept and bred several hundreds of geckos and have found great new homes for our geckos all over the world. When it comes to breeding we mainly focus on geckos of the former Rhacodactylus genus (now Correlophus, Mniarogekko and Rhacodactylus).
We have a special room (the biggest one in the house) dedicated to our geckos. This makes it easier to keep them under optimum circumstances regarding humidity and room temperature. In the winter we can heat the room whenever necessary thanks to the seperate thermostat in the gecko room and in the summer we can cool the room with airconditioning when temps are over 30 degrees celcius. Our geckos are misted with RO-water (reverse osmosis) and are fed Repashy's MRP, Pangea's complete diet, fresh pureed fruits and insects dusted with the necessary vitamins and minerals.
All of our hatchlings are kept in seperate faunariums from the day they hatch. This way we make sure they won't accidentally nip each other when hunting for insects. It is also much easier to monitor their health this way.
After a baby hatches and has shed it is placed in a faunarium lined with paper towels, a PVC pipe and a plastic plant (all of this is for easy cleaning). When it is several months old it will be moved to a bigger "more natural" faunarium.
