THE URBAN GECKO

our facility

When we first equipped our facility, our over-riding thought was, and continues to be, “nothing’s too good.” And from the equipment and supplies we choose, to our daily practices, we’ve been tireless in our efforts to provide the most pristine surroundings for our animals. We’ve taken pains to acquire reptiles of superior genetics and not unlike cherished pets, we truly believe that they deserve the best!

To that end, cleanliness, nutrition and perfect conditions are the order of the day at The Urban Reptile. So you can be completely assured that since its hatch, your premium reptile has enjoyed a healthy stress-free existence.

Our facility is approximately 8000 square feet and houses our entire reptile collection and rodent breeding operation. Please take a moment to have a virtual browse through our facility.

Adult Gecko Racks

Here is a typical adult gecko. All of our adults are housed using this arrangement. Each unit is heated from the back and controlled by a digital thermostat. This setup ensures a perfect heat gradient, which is essential to the wellbeing of our geckos.

Adult Leopard Gecko/African Fat-Tailed Gecko Enclosure

The interior of a typical Leopard Gecko or African Fat-Tailed Gecko adult unit. Since we’re a little fanatical about cleanliness, we choose to use a paper substrate. This allows for efficient and easy cleaning. Each unit is equipped with a dish for fresh water and one for calcium. Also included is a shoebox, which acts as a nesting area. We designate only one gecko per unit and our animals thrive within this peaceful environment.

Baby Gecko Room

Terrestrial gecko offspring such as Leopard Geckos and African Fat-Tailed Geckos are raised within our hatchling rack systems. Like the adult racks, they are heated at the back and controlled by a digital thermostat. Our babies flourish within these units.

Leopard Gecko/African Fat-Tailed Gecko Hatchling Enclosure

This is a peak inside a typical Leopard Gecko or African Fat-Tailed Gecko baby enclosure. The hatchling starts the first 10 days on moist paper towel then once they’ve shed we switch them onto paper. We provide a hide shelter a dish for fresh water and a calcium dish so the baby is able to supplement themselves.

Cleaning Stations

Here at The Urban Reptile we are fanatical about cleanliness so since our building has two levels it was necessary to have two cleaning stations. James is seen working at the lower station while Kurt is manning the upper one.

Adult Crested Gecko Room

We use screened enclosures for all of our adult Crested Geckos. They allow for great ventilation and easy access for maintenance and feeding.

Adult Crested Gecko Enclosure

Our set-ups are simple and very functional. This way we are able to keep every enclosure virtually spotless. This guarantees a healthy environment that they can thrive in.

Baby Crested Gecko Enclosure

All of our baby crested geckos are housed within a community environment in these large tubs. The tubs are all screen on top, which allows for terrific airflow.

Baby Crested Gecko Set-Up

Here’s a peak inside a baby crested gecko set-up. Each tub is furnished with a paper towel substrate, artificial foliage and plastic egg crate. This minimalistic type set-up enables us to keep each enclosure perfectly clean. Our babies flourish in these set-ups.

Incubation Room

Here is our incubation room.This is one of the most exciting areas of our facility and during hatching season this area is buzzing with activity.

The Lounge

Here’s where we hold our meetings, break bread and share some laughs.

Our Kitchen

With having to care for so many animals here at The Urban Reptile we don’t often get a chance to go out for lunch so it’s handy having a kitchen.

The Office

This is where we run the business aspect of our company answering emails, phone calls, processing orders and arranging shipments.

The Job Is Never Done

It seems we are always cleaning so as to maintain a pristine facility. This disciplined cleaning practice is mandatory here at The Urban Reptile.
