About Us

Welcome to Geckopedia, where you can read up-to-date articles about pet gecko care, including what to feed your gecko and how to help your pet gecko live a long, happy life!

Hi – I’m Erika, the lead gecko enthusiast here at Geckopedia! My interest in geckos began as a child, and experience has grown as I’ve cared for geckos as pets for many years. I now have five homeschooled children who adore geckos, and you will see them (the geckos and the children!) on my blog from time to time.

I am an educator – I graduated with advanced degrees from  UC-Berkeley, the University of Southern California (USC), and Indiana University-Bloomington, where I studied Biology and Animal Science in addition to my other coursework.

I use my thirty years expertise in gecko husbandry to help others learn about the keeping and care of geckos. I am an advocate for all subjects gecko related! If you have any questions, please email me at: thegeckopedia@gmail.com

Thanks for reading!
