I've been slacking on the updates, but it has been quite busy around here.

The shop has been a hit! Definitely not complaining there. Smaug might be, he gets to be the photo model every time i come up with a new idea. Such is the life of dragons.

Smaug, Onyxia, Lilly, Petrie, and I attended the first annual High Desert Pirate Fair a few weeks ago to kick off the renfaire season. Best first-year faire I have been to.


Took in a few new scaley babies.

We picked Gecky up at the reptile show in Pomona in early January. He was just over a month old. He is a gargoyle gecko.  We got him from GuyCo Geckos. I emailed them after the show requesting his hatch date and other information.  They responded very quickly and were well organized. Gecky is a healthy,  happy little gecko. :)  The name was supposed to be a place-holder till we figured out if he was a boy or a girl, but it just stuck. Now it's his name for good.

We found Mr. Tickles at the local pet store. He is a red bi-color crested gecko. When we got him, he was a little under 3 months old. We got him in early February. He was my Valentine's Day present. My youngest stepson named him, because it tickles when he walks on his skin.

Andi was a Craigslist find. Her eyes sold me. The guy we bought her from was trying to downsize his collection,  because he didn't have time for them. Andi is an emerine x halloween-mask leopard gecko. We picked her up in early February too, about a week after Mr. Tickles. We named her Andromeda because her eyes reminded me of little galaxies.

Cassie came from the same guy who we got Andi from. He contacted me this past Saturday because he remembered me saying that I run a small reptile rescue. She had stopped eating, and she was losing weight. He asked me to take her in as a rescue,  and make sure she got the care she needs. After some argument, she ate tonight. She is a bell albino leopard gecko. We called her Cassiopeia because it just seemed to fit.


Successfully got Petrie switched over to frozen/thawed food. I am thrilled for that. No expensive vet bills due to rat bites for him.

Now, if only Lilly would switch...
