Bearded Dragons (Pogona vitticeps) are one of the most personable reptiles on the market today. They are great pets for the first time reptile owners and the most experienced. Many people describe Bearded Dragons as the puppies of the reptile world. They require very little maintenance and are very hardy. We are currently working with Red Bearded Dragons, Citrus Bearded Dragons, Red Hypomelanistic Bearded Dragons, Hypotranslucents, Leucistic Translucents, Silkback Hypotranslucents, Smoothie Hypotranslucents, Leatherback Hypotranslucents, Smoothie Hypotranslucents, Hypos, and Translucents. We hope that we can help you with all your Bearded Dragon needs. If we don't have it, we would be happy to help you find the one you want.
The Crested Gecko ( Rhacodactylus ciliatus ) very quickly became one of the most popular choices among reptile keepers. A fairly recent rediscovery in 1994, it made a great addition to the reptile trade. Cresties have a great variety of colors and pattern morphs. We are currently working with, or towards, varying shades of brown, tan, red, orange, yellow, gray, black, cream, Flame, Harlequin, Dalmatian, Tiger, Blondes, Pinstripe and REVERSE Pinstripe. Their low cost and very little maintenance has made this amazing herp a distinguished favorite as a pet.
All of our Crested Geckos (Rhacodactylus ciliatus ), New Caledonian Giant Geckos (Rhacodactylus leachianus, Leachie ) are eating Repashy Superfoods Crested Gecko MRP (diet) Meal Replacement Powder (MRP) for all Fruit-Eating Geckos, such as Rhacodactylus. This is also a great supplement for other species such as Anoles, Skinks, Chameleons, and Iguanids. No further supplementation is required for Fruit-Eating Geckos when feeding MRP; however, if you choose to feed alternately with insects, we recommend gutloading with Repashy’s SuperLoad and dusting with Repashy’s Calcium Plus every time insects are used.
We started this part of our life in 2005, when one of our sons asked for a snake. At that time, we were living in an apartment, and I hadn't had a snake since I was a kid, so I suggested we try a lizard and go from there. So, we got a Crested Gecko. Then our oldest son and daughter wanted one, too. I just had to get in on this, so I went and got a Bearded Dragon, and few weeks later, two more. Mom was really liking them, the kids loved them, and let's just say, we just wanted more and more. I went to a reptile show with a friend and came back with a Crested Gecko. It calmed down the craving for more -- well, for a few months. Then I took my two oldest boys to the NARBC reptile show, 6 hours away in Chicago. We came back with our first high-end Bearded Dragon. Then we started getting more Bearded Dragons and Crested Geckos shipped to us. We have had a lot of fun doing this. Really, the only reason we got into it was to do things together. We really love it! We keep learning as much as we can, and we try to teach as many people as we can about reptiles. We have made a true family business. The children help a lot with the feeding and cleaning, and they have to, of course, hold every last baby!! Our 8 year old loves to tear up greens and hand feed them.
In 2009 , I was able to meet the band Hairball. http://www.hairballonline.com/ I worked with Rockstar Bob, as his reptile handler and teaching the band more about how to care for, travel with, and properly transport the snakes. Hell, I think the snakes get better care than the band at times. During their shows, I was on-hand at all times. I talked to fans -- they always want to talk about the snakes. I tell them the truth about the snakes and not what TV would just like you to know. From this, people who never liked snakes are in love with them, and a few people have approached me at later shows to tell me that they have gotten a reptile. This has really been a great way for me to get info out to people who would have never cared before. As for Hairball, this band is on fire! If you ever find out that they will be playing near you, YOU NEED TO GO!! I have since worked with a band called JunkFM a few times. http://www.junkfm.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/junkfm
