Rescue Me ID: 15-04-28-00685Crested Gecko Pax (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    Pax is a handsome and gentle Crested Gecko (Rhacodactylus ciliatus) looking for a loving guardian. Little Pax is easily handled and incredibly fun to watch. Crested Geckos are considered to be starter pets for those interested in reptiles. But, as with any new pet, there is a lot to learn about their care. I have never rescued a Crested Gecko before so I've been doing a bit of reading so that I set up his habitat properly and fed him appropriately. Let me share a little of the information I've gathered, and I look forward to hearing more from reptile enthusiasts. They need the proper temperature and humidity in their aquarium. ... (Read More)So, in his 20 gallon aquarium, I installed a thermometer to measure the temperature, and a hygrometer to measure the humidity. Crested Geckos are nocturnal omnivores who feed on insects and fruit in the evening. Their little feet feel like little rubber suction cups and they can easily climb the side of a glass aquarium, although they love to hop from limp to limb of the plastic plants I've set up. They can eat either Crested Gecko powdered food which you regenerate with water into a slurry, or live insects like crickets along with fruit baby foods. One of the weirdly cool things they do since they don't have eyelids is licking their eyes with their tongue. They are fascinating to watch. Pax has what is sometimes referred to as a frog butt. He apparently lost his tail, a defense mechanism, and they do not grow back in Crested Geckos. But, he gets around just fine. To meet and possibly adopt Pax, please contact Sheri at or 773-777-2891. His adoption fee of $35 benefits rescued pets. His 20 gallon aquarium with mesh top, thermometer and hygrometer, cork hideaways, plants, food, vitamins and dishes, and everything else you will need to care for this little fellow is available for $100.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-25-00116Red Ear Slider

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    My daughter has long size left home taking most of her worldly possessions...except for her turtle. Acquired during a Spring Break trip to Panama Beach about 10 years ago Mr. T has been residing in my home office ever since. Hopeful that someday the rightful owner would reclaim possession of Mr. T and take him off my hands that does not look likely in the foreseeable future. Given my current situation I do not have room for a turtle so he has to go. Thank you

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.

lnteresting Reptiles & More Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The word Reptile comes from the Latin Repere, which means to creep. In the Florida Everglades, there are over 20,000 non-native reptiles such as Burmese Pythons due to people releasing reptile pets into the wild. The breeding or keeping of reptiles is called Herpetoculture. The largest Burmese Python in captivity weighs over 400 pounds and is about 27 feet long.
