My leopard geckos, in general, are pretty low maintenance pets - especially compared to my high energy dogs!  That doesn't mean, though, that I don't get a lot of enjoyment out of keeping them.  One of my favorite things about keeping reptiles is that I really enjoy setting up their tanks.   ...continue reading "Aurora’s New Tank Setup"


Happy 2016!  I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start.  The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year.  The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch.  We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"


yyWell, belated Hatch Day, but only by a day.  Yesterday, September 20th, our beautiful leopard gecko Aurora turned 8 years old!

Aurora is our second oldest pet, right after Barnaby who will turn 10 years old in November.  But Aurora is no old lady!  Estimates of how long leopard geckos live vary greatly.  Some people say the average is only between 6 and 10 years, but other sources say, if well cared for, between 10 and 20 years is a good estimate.  Quite a range right?  The oldest leopard gecko on record, at least that I know of, passed away at the ripe old age of 32! ...continue reading "Happy 8th Hatch Day, Aurora!"



I'm currently sitting at my computer with two sleeping dogs at my feet.  My bedroom floor is covered in tiny pieces of cardboard because Fen got into the recycling (again) and I didn't take it from him, figuring that ripping up cardboard was far from the worst thing he could be doing.  I'm waiting for our September Pet Treater box to get here, but because I doubt I'll have the motivation to take/edit pictures and write the review today, I'm posting a pack update instead. ...continue reading "September 2016 Paw Pack Update"

pppp25 years ago yesterday (June 14th) I was overjoyed to have been able to watch my Leopard gecko, Miyuki, hatch from her egg.  My other female gecko, Aurora, is Miyuki's mother.  Aurora laid Miyuki's egg on April 24th, 2011, and after incubating for 52 days Miyuki blessed us all with her presence.  Miyuki's egg wasn't the only one Aurora laid, but it was the only one that ever hatched. ...continue reading "Happy 5th Birthday To Miyuki"
