NEVER have we been gifted something so personal that reflects this hobby we love so much! Shared this painting with our family and they were very impressed and as speechless as we are. Hopefully in daytime lighting we will get a better photo of our painting hung in the daylight. We were shaking taking it out of the package, this is pure magic and we feel so blessed! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

Kaitlin, WE LOVE YOU!!!
During the week of NARBC Tinley (March 2014) we were enjoying one of the best reptile show’s Chicago has to offer.
It was non-stop meet & greet with so many wonderful faces we have the pleasure of meeting & knowing in person.
There were so many emotional gifts given to us at the show, to start it off sharing them with you all, our good friend Kaitlin Marks-Dubbs had Richie & I ecstatic and speechless over all the time she took out of her way to think about us, creating this BEAUTIFUL MASTERPIECE! The details she captured and vibrant colors all just POP in this priceless piece. It’s these random acts of kindness that really prove how incredibly rewarding this hobby is. Feeling so guilty to accept this, Kaitlin, we truly LOVE IT & so does RIDDICK as you can see! Lol (Once we organize our gecko room we have to post a room photo of our walls that will be soon covered in gecko art :P)
Best wishes to you & your husband on your move back, and until the next show, I promise to hug you even tighter! xoxo
For all of you who haven’t checked out Kaitlin’s EXTRAORDINARY collection over at RhacEmUp you MUST & LIKE HER PAGE FOR BEAUTIFUL UPDATES! She has exceptional taste and we love how planned out every one of her new additions are. We hope to one day add to your beautiful collection of geckos, hopefully Riddick can gift you a baby smothered in white, & you can make us a beautiful extreme red! ;)
WE LOVE YOU KAITLIN!!!

Justine, you got SKILLS!
This custom created wood-burn of THE MAN himself, Apollo,
was gifted to us from our TALENTED friend, Justine!
Her work really speaks for itself and as soon as we looked at the gaze in Apollo's eyes she captured, it really hit us hard.
I think everyone who is a pet owner, knows how personal and import their role becomes in the family.
Justine does commissioned work, and if you haven't already you MUST see her pieces of art!
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH JUSTINE!
This piece of art will forever be cherished by us & our families.
WE LOVE YOU JUSTINE!

You already know how important you are to us. Your talents sky rocket past this universe.
We remember when you sent this to us on our Facebook page on Richie's birthday his smile was so freekin' cheesy, it was ridiculous! lol
We dedicated an ENTIRE section to you if you haven't seen it already (or if you are reading this.)
Thank you for everything you continue to do for us & most importantly the friendship you have unconditionally given both Richie & I.
WE LOVE YOU BOBBY!

Teresa & Ryan, you both have always inspired us since day one. To be our first friends we ever created in the hobby really takes the cherry on top and we are happy to have found you both and consider you two like our family. :)
MORE EXCITING NEW NARBC Tinley additions, as we welcome a very special baby that is bringing us so much JOY!
We introduce baby, Algae Pea! (Name inspired from Teresa hahaha! FREEKIN" LOVE IT Teresa )
Gifted to us this 2014 October NARBC Tinley from our AMAZING FRIENDS, Teresa & Ryan, over at LGP Gecko!!!!
(If you haven't met the dynamic duo you MUST go check out LGP Gecko's BEAUTIFUL collection!
Every time we hold and spend time with Algae Pea, this little cutie brings back priceless memories of our first time vending with Teresa & Ryan during the chaotic NARBC Tinley show. <3
Algae Pea is very dear to our hearts as the father is Apollo (formally known as our Olive!) paired with their beautiful DD!
Algae Pea fires up so beautifully with a funky dorsal pattern we find ourselves fixated on
Such a personal gift to have in our collection and we can't thank Teresa and Ryan enough!
Be sure for plenty of updates as this gem transforms!
Thank you Teresa & Ryan!!! WE LOVE YOU BOTH MORE THEN YOU REALIZE!!!

Krystal & Kyle have truly inspired us, not only with their phenomenal array of reptiles but by their sincere motives for generosity from the bottom of their hearts. Their teamwork is beyond inspiring, & we thank them for setting the bar for being so approachable, helpful, & knowledgeable breeders. This past weekend during NARBC Tinley, they gave us the total case of the butterflies! Surprising us by welcoming our Atlas in their home & also falling in love with our Riddick. So blown away by their sincere compliments & to share our excitement for our 2014 breeding pairs, this trade happened out of pure happiness!
We introduce Amistad! Spanish for “friendship.” You both have truly touched our lives with enthusiasm & friendship.
This girl shines! Finally got her to fire up so beautifully & really show that beautiful crisp white coloring on her dorsal/pinning creating such bold contrast! Her side pattern goes straight up like walls, always in awe when we hold her.
& Most importantly, we can't wait to give back with a future RIDDICK BABY!!!
Out of Gekkonidazed Geckos gorgeous

WE LOVE & ADMIRE YOU BOTH!!!

LOVE THIS BABY!!!
We have been super excited to introduce a very special new face to our collection!
Modest Mouse was a complete surprise gifted from our good friends Margaret & Ryan over at the Harlequin Hoard this past NARBC Tinley (March 2014).
Words cannot describe how touched we are to have our first baby (of the many more to come) from The Harlequin Hoard’s beautiful collection.
Modest Mouse is offspring from the beautiful Scarlet & Yendieth
Happy to get the chance to watch our Modest Mouse grow & blossom.
