Gecko Feet Don’t Stick Around

This allows for weak forces between molecules, called van der Waals forces and frictional adhesion, to become strong enough to support a lizard’s weight. The tokay gecko has some 6.5 million setae, which together generate enough force “to hold up two skinny guys or one fat guy,” Gamble says. “If all the setae had full contact with the substrate, [with that amount of adhesion] you could have a Spider-Man suit.” Reconstructing feet Engineers who want to emulate the lizard’s feats will have to construct precisely designed mechanical feet. “People making gecko adhesive have just been concerned with stickiness, like flypaper,” Gamble explains. “But as soon as you want to make something move in the real world, you must know how to make it stick and unstick on different inclines and different materials and at different speeds.” Since hundreds of gecko species have adhesive toepads, it could be tough choosing one to use as a model. “If you don’t know how they’re related, you may do a lot of unnecessary work looking at every species,” Gamble continues. “But if you know how they’re grouped evolutionarily, you can compare representative species from each of the 11 groups that evolved toepads independently. Then you can figure out what characteristics lineages with toepads have in common.” The crested, or eyelash, gecko (Rhacodactylus ciliatus) is native to New Caledonia.

Day Gecko Care – Terrarium Set Up and the Best Supplies

Hello, Frank Indiviglio here.  Gaily clad in brilliant, neon-hued colors, Day Geckos (Phelsuma spp.) are among the most desirable of all lizard pets, so here is a short article about Day Gecko care.  Many are hardy, long-lived, and relatively simple to breed…but only if they are housed in a properly-designed habitat.  Active and alert, these cautious animals fare poorly in bare enclosures, but are ideally suited for life in naturalistic, planted terrariums.  The security provided by dense plantings and well-placed branches will put Day Geckos at ease and allow you to view a wide range of fascinating behaviors.

Setting up the Terrarium

Day Geckos are highly arboreal and must have climbing opportunities.  “High-style” aquariums make fine homes.  A pair or trio of Spotted, Yellow-Throated or other small species can be kept in a 15-20 gallon aquarium.  A 30-55 gallon tank will accommodate the same number of Standing’s, Madagascar or Giant Day Geckos.  Always opt for the largest terrarium possible.

Day Geckos need spacious enclosures that mimic their natural habitat.  Live plants such as Pothos and Philodendron will provide visual barriers between tank-mates and a sense of security.  Rolled cork bark and hollow bamboo sections make ideal hideaways and perching sites, and should be arranged both horizontally and vertically.

Be sure to establish plenty of basking sites near heat and UVB bulbs, as dominant individuals may exclude others from these important areas.

The terrarium’s screen lid must be tightly secured with clamps.

Substrate

A mix of potting soil, cypress mulch and sphagnum moss is ideal.

Light

Day Geckos will not thrive without a source of UVB light (but some notable exceptions are known; please see article below).  Natural sunlight is best, but be aware that glass and plastic filter out UVB rays, and that fatal overheating can occur very quickly.

Your geckos should be able to bask within 6-12 inches of a high-output UVB florescent bulb; the Zoo Med 10.0  Bulb, which I have used at the Bronx and Staten Island Zoos, has been shown to out-perform other florescent models.  Mercury vapor and halogen bulbs broadcast UVB over greater distances, and emit beneficial UVA radiation as well.  Be sure to provide shaded areas.

A daytime period of 12-14 hours should be established.

Heat

Ambient temperatures of 82-88 F, with a basking spot of 90-95 F, will suit most (please post below for information on individual species).

Incandescent spotlights may be used by day; ceramic heaters or red/black reptile “night bulbs” are useful after dark.

Provide your pets with the largest home possible, so that a thermal gradient (areas of different temperatures) can be established.  Thermal gradients, critical to good health, allow reptiles to regulate their body temperature by moving between hot and cooler areas.  In small or poorly ventilated enclosures, the entire area soon takes on the basking site temperature.

Humidity

Most Day Geckos are rainforest dwellers and do best in humid surroundings.  Their terrarium should be misted at least twice daily. If your home is especially dry, consider using a small reptile fogger to raise the humidity levels in the terrarium (please see photo).t243860

Companions

Males will fight savagely and cannot be housed together. Females are territorial, and must be watched carefully. Pairs, trios (1 male, 2 females) and youngsters may co-exist in large enclosures, but be sure to check dominant individuals do not prevent others from feeding and basking.

Please check out my posts on Twitter and Facebook.  Each day, I highlight breaking research, conservation news and interesting stories concerning just about every type of animal imaginable.  I look forward to hearing about your interests and experiences as well, and will use them in articles when possible.

Gecko Overview

Leopard Gecko Care – The Ideal Gecko Terrarium – a Zookeeper’s Thoughts

Hello, Frank Indiviglio here.  Leopard Geckos (Eublepharis macularius) possess distinct personalities, accept handling, are easy to breed, do not require UVB radiation and are content with modestly-sized terrariums – surely as close to a “perfect reptile pet” as one can imagine.  However, while some have reached ages of 20+ years, Leopard Geckos will not thrive if their specific needs are not met.  Drawing from my work with this and related species at the Bronx and Staten Island Zoos, today I’ll describe the type of captive habitat these fascinating lizards require, and some useful products that will help you excel in Leopard Gecko care.  I’m also hoping to publish a revised edition of a book I’ve written on Leopard Geckos…I’ll try to include any interesting observations you might post below.

Natural History

Understanding an animal’s natural history is a critical first step in successful captive care and breeding.

The Leopard Gecko is found in southeastern Afghanistan, western India, Pakistan, Iraq, and Iran, where it frequents desert fringes and arid grasslands. Its habitat is characterized by sand, gravel, rocks, tough grasses and low shrubs (please see photo).  In the course of the year, temperatures may range from 41-104 F. Please see the article linked below for further information on Leopard Geckos in the wild.

Setting up the Terrarium

Leopard Geckos will do fine in simple homes, but naturalistic terrariums landscaped with rocks, driftwood and live plants make for stunning displays.  Aloes, Ox Tongue, Snake Plants and other arid-adapted species, all readily available, may be used to decorate Leopard Gecko terrariums.

 Leopard Geckos are not overly-active (by lizard standards) but should be given as much room as possible.  A single adult will get by in a 10-15 gallon aquarium, but a 20 gallon (long style) is preferable.  A 30-55 gallon terrarium will accommodate a pair or trio.

Leopard Geckos are ground-dwelling, but will utilize rocks and stout driftwood.  Rocks and other heavy objects should always be placed on the terrarium’s floor, not on the substrate, so that lizards cannot tunnel below and be crushed.

Several hide boxes or caves should be provided, preferably on both the cooler and warmer sides of the terrarium.  Please see “Humidity” and “Temperature” below for further information. 

As air flow is important for animals that are native to arid habitats, your terrarium should be equipped with a screen top.

Substrate

Sand has long been used as a substrate for adult geckos in zoos and private collections, and I’ve not had any problems with it in either setting.  However, impactions due to swallowed sand are sometimes reported, and most pet keepers prefer to err on the side of caution.  Large gravel and stones, of a size that cannot be swallowed, are a good alternative.  You can mix in some dry grass to simulate a semi-desert environment.  If you do choose to add sand, it is best to provide food in large bowls, or in a separate enclosure, so that ingestion is limited.

Hatchlings are clumsy hunters, and tend to swallow sand.  Newspapers, paper towels or washable cage liners should be used until their skills improve.  Adults may also be kept in this manner if you prefer.

Light

Nocturnal lizards such as Leopard Geckos absorb Vitamin D3 from their diet, and do not need a UVB light source.

Heat

The ambient air temperature should range from 78-88 F.  A ceramic heater or red/black reptile “night bulb” (these will also enable you to observe your gecko after dark) can be used to maintain these temperatures at night.  A below-tank heat mat or bulb should be positioned so that one corner of the tank is warmer (to 88 F) that the rest.

Large enclosures are necessary if a thermal gradient (areas of different temperatures) is to be established.  Thermal gradients, critical to good health, allow lizards to regulate their body temperature by moving from hot to cooler areas.

Humidity

Low humidity and a dry substrate should be maintained.  However, shedding problems will be likely if a cave stocked with moist sphagnum moss is not provided.  A dry hiding spot should also be available.

Companions

Leopard Geckos are solitary and best housed alone.  Females and youngsters may co-exist, but dominant individuals may prevent others from feeding.  Males will fight viciously and cannot be kept together.  Pairs may get along in a large terrarium, but close monitoring is the rule.

Feeding

Too many pet Leopard Geckos are fed diets comprised solely of crickets and mealworms, and as a result rarely live as long as they otherwise might.  The overuse of pink mice is another common mistake.  Please see this article  for information on providing a proper diet, and be sure to post any questions below.

Anne Hathaway Lizard Film Under ‘godzilla’ Attack In New Lawsuit (exclusive) – Yahoo News

“Toho is informed and believes, and based thereon alleges, that Defendants have knowingly used the Godzilla Character to attract interest and attention in their Colossal project so that it would stand out in a crowded field of competitors on the film sales circuit,” states the complaint. The plaintiffis suing for copyright and trademark infringements, trademark dilution, Lanham Act violations, unfair competition and unjust enrichment. It wants Voltage enjoined from producing Colossal plus unspecified damages. The complaint was filed by Greenberg Glusker’s Aaron Moss and Chuck Shephard, Toho’s longtime litigators. “We’ve represented Toho for a long time, and this is about as brazen an act of infringement as we’ve encountered. It’s hard to believe that an established Hollywood production company would conduct business this way,” Shephard tells The Hollywood Reporter.

“This is psychological warfare that we hope will make the enemy afraid, but it’s also a way for us to send our message to say that we’re the good side.” That assertion is contested by Syria’s opposition, which accuses Hezbollah of facilitating Damascus’s attempts to put down an uprising that began with peaceful protests and spiralled into a war after a regime crackdown.
