Hainan Island Cave Gecko

Goniurosaurus Hainanensis
One of our all time favourite reptiles to keep. Unique and interesting lizards. Great for beginner to intermediate hobbyists. This nocturnal forest dwelling lizard will thrive in a humid room temperature enclosure. They are insectivores and require calcium and vitamin dusting, however no heat or UVB light is needed. NOTE: UVB is always beneficial even for nocturnal species, but Goniurosaurus is regularly kept and bred successfully without the use of UVB.

Porcellio Hoffmannsegii Isopods

Porcellio Hoffmannsegii
Adults reach 1.5 inches. Keep enclosure dry with a one lightly misted corner. Feed heat treated rotting hardwood and leaf litter. Supplement with fresh veggies, fish flakes, brewer's yeast. Reproduces in the spring.

Barbados Brown Velvet Worm

Epiperipatus Barbadensis
This is the first species of velvet worm to make its way into the pet trade in Canada. We have a well established breeding group which has produced many juveniles. Currently not available, however this listing will remain up so that anybody interested can be added to a wait list. We anticipate having them available again for summer 2020.

Crested Gecko

Correlophus Ciliatus
The essential beginner reptile. A staple in the hobby due to their personality and ease of care. Keep them at room temperature with a thorough daily spray down. No UVB light or additional heat is required. These lizards eat a highly specific fruit-based diet which is readily available pre fabricated online and at pet stores. Give them height and lots of live plants. NOTE: Some UVB light is always beneficial, even for nocturnal species. However, crested geckos have been well documented to thrive and breed without it.
