Listen, Chahouas, you are not who we told you you were

This morning an article published yesterday by the scientific-journal Zootaxa was brought to my attention.  The journal itself deals with the taxonomical classification of animals, something that interests me as a connection between the world of biology and my professional position as an archivist.  Taxonomy is essentially the way we identify what things are through names we give them and classifications.  In the library and archives world this helps organize information to make it easier for people to access.  In biology taxonomy tells us that this animal

Paletonner

This gecko loved to grow.  Very exploritory and curious, particularly about the Leachies.  Not a good idea for a little gecko...

Berliner

Berliner hatched out a day after Blintz to be the second hatchling from Gecko Condo!  This gecko is too new to get a good sense of its personality and other characteristics yet.

Rip Van Winkle

Rip Van Winkle surprised everyone by hatching out after 304 days in the egg.  This little gecko was the first hatchling for Belite and from her first clutch. Likes roaches even more than the average gecko.  Rip Van Winkle's silhouette is one of the images used in the stencils to mark and decorate the bee hives.

Plum

Plum was the last gecko to hatch out for 2011.  Plum is fairly skittish so far, but we are still getting to know this little gecko!

Conan

I acquired Conan because his parents showed good examples of dark and red coloration which is just what I wanted to pair with Zenobia.  2012 is the first season I have been able to pair Conan and Zenobia despite having both of them since 2009.  He has been a loner most of the time I have had him, and seems to be a more quiet, introverted gecko.  Certainly not as boisterous as Green Man, but he does love a good roach and to come to a position where he can watch what you are doing while you are in the same room he is in.

Zenobia

Zenobia is the clutchmate of Ahnuld, both of whom were my first Chahoua.  They were hatched on Halloween of 2008 and providing great fun ever sense.  Zenobia has brillent reds that come through when fired up that tone down to pink and white during the day.  She is shy, but not skiddish.
