The eggs are starting to show changes in size and shape. Notice eggs #11, #12, and #13 have become more elongated.

Could one of these be the first to crack? Watch and see!

Crested Gecko Diet- The Easy Form!

As I have had a great response this last year to our new store design ( ), several hobbyists have asked for an easier Crested Gecko Diet checkout process.

Please check out Created Gecko Food- Easy Form. While there is a ton of information on this ONE page- video on how to mix the diet, the difference between MRP and CGD, etc. I am hoping this has made it A LOT easier to order your food.

Try it out and let me know if you have any suggestions.

Goosebumps normal?

This is the "non reptile person" wanting to know if it is normal to get goosebumps when feeding fast moving animals?

Still collecting eggs from the Leopards

Today I fed all the adult leopards and collected 3 batches of eggs. They are starting to slow down in laying. Not to worry we have 5 incubators full of eggs waiting to hatch. My question is where are they all going to go?

Put A Hold On Mold....

Leopard gecko hatches in our facility

It is very interesting to me to see all the different color patterns of the leopards as they hatch. I am surprised to see that 2 eggs that were laid and collected at the same time can be so different sometimes. The babies are growing at a fast rate and now some of them are getting to a size that I consider a challenge for me the "Non-Reptile Person" to work with. How can such a small animal intimidate me so?

Most popular egg is #...

We have 86 entries at this time. You have 6 more days to enter! Deadline for entries is June 23rd at Midnight - Central Time

Get your guess in and you may win a $100 gift certificate to the online "Supreme Gecko Store" or our table "Supreme Gecko" at a Reptile show we vend at.

Contest- When Will You Crack! Win $100 gift certificate

leopard gecko eggs
Supreme Gecko announces an event to test your skills at picking the leopard gecko egg that will hatch first! All you need to do is pick the egg # you feel will be the 'Golden' egg to hatch first and you can win a $100 gift certificate to be used at any reptile show we vend or on the Supreme Gecko on-line Store.

All you need to do is provide a comment below or Email us with the following information:

Email address
Egg #
AM or noon or PM

See rules below.


14 eggs from 7 different females will be used in the contest. They were all laid and collected within a 24 hour period (on June 2nd).
Incubation- Hovabator set at 82 degrees. (note- at this temperature, eggs hatch in about 8 weeks). Pictures will be taken at least once a day and possibly more frequently after the first few weeks.

Guess the egg that will hatch out first. Your guess should include your Name, your Email address, Egg #, Date, AM/noon/PM (we will be checking eggs in the morning, at noon, and in the evening as expected hatch dates near).

How To Guess
Submit your guesses in any number of ways- through Facebook, the Supreme Gecko Store, the blog, or even from posts on the forums.
One guess per person will be accepted between 6/9/2009 and midnight 6/23/2009.

The winner will be the person that guesses the egg number that hatches FIRST!
If there are multiple guesses with the correct egg number, then hatch date, then hatch time (AM/noon/PM) will be used to determine the winner.
In the event of a tie, a new group of eggs that are close to hatching (either the remaining eggs in the initial 14 or a new group that is close to hatching) will be provided. The tied entries will make a new selection within 24 hours. The selections will be posted and the contest will resume with only the tied contestants. Again, the winner will be the one with the egg number that hatches first, then correct date, then time (AM/noon/PM).

Supreme Gecko will donate a $100 gift certificate that may be used on our on-line store or at any reptile show we vend at (valid until August 1, 2010).

In normal hatching situations, some eggs may not hatch. This may be due to any number of factors. We will leave the eggs in the incubator as long as they appear not to impact the hatching of another egg. If an egg is pulled before the first hatch, unfortunately these guesses still count and a new guess will not be allowed.

Email addresses may be used in future correspondence.
This contest is meant to be used for educational and entertainment purposes as the prize offered is not of cash value.
Only one entry per person, please. If we find that multiple entries are submitted for one person, their entries will be removed.

Family members are not eligible to participate in this contest.

Wally finds a hatch first !

The one day I get to sleep in and Wally cheats and goes down to check the incubators! Of course, I knew that Torch would be hatching today - but he found the hatch first. He really doesn't get the chance to find the hatches so I guess one day a week is ok.

Updated Owner's Pet Gallery

A new OWNER'S PET GALLERY has just been added to the Supreme Gecko Store page. I've been working on this a bit the last couple days and it is what I was hoping for- A place for customers of Supreme Gecko to show off their geckos. I still have a couple to add but thought I would put this out there for now.
So- if you have pet photos and are a customer of SG, please send them in so you can show off your geckos!
Here is the new link- Owners Pet Gallery

How Many?????

I, "the non-reptile person" looks forward to collecting the eggs. In order to keep the animal away from my hand when collecting I feed and water at the same time. Tonight, I was surprised to find 1, 3, no 9 more sets of eggs!! Can't wait to see them hatch.

Waiting to check for hatches is hard!

Eggs are a hatching! It is SO hard not the look in the incubators constantly throughout the day. Our rule is once in the morning and once at night in order not to open the incubators too many times to avoid disturbing the temperature of the incubators. The one good thing is that there is a little window on the top and I can see in to see if there are babies. Today when I was checking for hatches, my son came in and was excited to see 3 no 4 hatches today! He was also very surprised to see all the eggs in the incubators and wonders where I will be putting all the babies when they hatch?

Meet, Greet, and Pet Get Together in SE Wisc. May 29,2009

What a great time! We met at Rob and Beth Hall's around 10:30 or so. Rob offered a brief opening discussion (focusing on asking everyone to keep reading and staying in touch with the latest activities in our hobby). Rob is ALWAYS educating. He then took folks down to his reptile area in groups (I cheated and went down multiple times to take some photos).
What a display!!! The animals were all extremely healthy, alert, awake, and ready to be pet! His tegus are unreal! So calm and gentle. Rob brought out his albino and het for albino and provided some education for the groups. Neat animals. There was so much to check out in his facility that I feel even with my multiple trips down, I missed a bunch of stuff :) Rob has designed, developed and built most of his enclosures. They are all perfect for the animals. Did I mention the alligators! WoW! We make the trip up to the living room and found more setups- bearded dragon, G. vorex, and other animals welcomed us there. Rob provided a couple of tricks from the vorex.
When all groups completed the tour, we were back up, grabbed some wonderful food (thank you again Rob and Beth for the great lunch!) and outside to talk reptiles. After some give away prizes and more reptile talking we decided to wrap it up before it got dark on us.
I hope everyone enjoyed the time with other gecko keepers, learned something new, and just enjoyed themselves- like I certainly did.
I will be putting together other MGP (Meet, Greet, and Pet) get togethers this summer and fall so stay tuned.

Please enjoy the photos (yes I was at the event even though I am not in any of the photos). Since there were so many pictures, I threw together a page...
