Book review - The Leopard Gecko Advisor:

"I just finished reading your book "The Leopard Gecko Advisor". I have to say I was a bit hesitant to purchase it because I've read pretty much all the books written on leos and had considered the latest book to be the last one I would need to ever read. Boy was I surprised by this one! I never would have imagined being able to learn so much more on a subject I thought was previously covered extensively. It was also written in a way a laymen can understand without a lot of unnecessary or hard to decipher information. This will be THE book I will recommend for all my leo customers and really feel it should make my part on educating them much easier." - Tad Fitzgerald/Captive Bred Excellence

"I can't say enough good things about Designer Geckos!  Ray and Carol were SO helpful with getting us started on our gecko journey, patiently guiding us and answering our many questions. His professional and caring approach is incredible!! It's evident he knows a lot about and loves the geckos in his care. This was evident in the extra careful way our geckos were shipped and in the incredibly beautiful and healthy animals we received! Their bodies full and robust, their temperaments very sweet and their colors knock your socks off!! I would recommend them over and over again."  Lisa - NY

Here's an example of one of our new Zorro Mandarin Designer geckos we are producing.  They have beautiful orange and lavender coloration with great markings! We will have a very limited number of these available this year, but will produce many for the market in 2014...



Mandarin, our star Tangerine boy basking in the sunshine.  Watch for Mandarin Tangerines and Designers this season.....


Introducing....Mars.  This spectacular White and Yellow male may be one of the best geckos in the world today.  We have some amazing new projects we are working on with him so watch for some stunning new geckos later this year from this gorgeous boy.  Check out the red paradox spot on his side...let's develop that into a red gecko! 

What Designer Geckos is all about:

Designer Geckos is not your usual source for leopard geckos. Our business model is to provide a very unique niche in the leopard gecko pet field. We have both our online store, as well as an actual storefront location, the first and only one of its kind in the world!  Our goal is to provide reasonably-priced, top notch, beautiful geckos, and also to provide cutting-edge gecko education to our customers so they, and the geckos, have a wonderful and positive life experience. These geckos will all be premium geckos, with outstanding genetic bloodlines, extreme coloration and patterns, A-1 health, great conformation, and excellent temperament. These show-quality geckos are stunning in every sense of the word. Not only are they all choice animals, but, unlike large breeders who produce large numbers of geckos and may not have the time to spend with individual animals, we do provide direct human contact and socialization daily with each gecko. We feel it is important for some gecko enthusiasts to obtain not only spectacular geckos, but to receive them already socialized with humans and ready to easily be tamed when you receive and acclimate them.

Designer Geckos is owned by Ray and Carol Roehner.  Ray has a science degree, is a certified laboratory animal technologist, and has been raising reptiles and other animals since he was five.  Carol has extensive experience and training in sales, marketing, and customer service.  Their goals are to offer among the very best designer leopard geckos on the market, and also to provide solid customer support to ensure that your experience with Designer Geckos is a positive, professional, and enjoyable one.  

Our philosophy:

If you are new to the leopard gecko hobby, please be sure you are well-versed in the basics and principles of the proper care of leopard geckos, and have a fully functioning setup and temperature-regulated terrarium ready to receive these fine animals before buying one. We can provide you with all the information you will need to provide excellent care for your geckos. The humane and proper care of these geckos is of very high importance to us, and this philosophy will benefit you greatly so you can have an outstanding, healthy pet and addition to your family, or to have as an addition to your own breeding program, establishing our animals as breeders with outstanding temperament, color, size, and health aspects. 

The sources for our carefully selected animals:

In addition to our own breeding stock program, we choose the very best leopard geckos from various outstanding breeders who adhere to the same high standards of Designer Geckos. We choose only their very best animals to go into our breeding program. Once we obtain their geckos for our program, we continue to raise them to full maturity and adult coloration, ensure that they have outstanding health through our affiliated licensed reptile veterinarians, feed them high quality foods, and carefully socialize them so they get the kind of human contact and handling that will be of enormous benefit to you since many personality traits can be passed on to the geckos' offspring.  We have a parasite-free colony to ensure our geckos have an outstanding health profile, and our geckos are all 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

We'd like to thank the following for their outstanding contributions and kind assistance in our gecko project: Ron Tremper, Garrick DeMeyer, and Steve Sykes, as well as all the other fine gecko folks who make this wonderful hobby such a pleasure to be involved in. A special thanks to Brittney Gougeon for developing our website.  Thanks also to Ottmar Liebert for our site's music, and Ed Unitsky for the beautiful logo artwork.

Here is a great female produced from our Venus and Mandarin.  She'll produce amazing babies for us next year!

Featured Geckos


Zorro Bandits:  So what is all this Zorro buzz about?  The Z that stands for Zorro is one of the most exciting topics in the shop these days!  This wonderful male Jungle Bandit is producing some of the most amazing Bandit leopard geckos in the world today.  Be on the lookout for his baby Banditos as their wanted posters get put up on our site's available page. 

Snow Diablo Blanco Update:  Check out our collection page for more info on this extremely exciting development on this incredible white pairing that will produce the most striking, pure white geckos in the world. 


Ronnie is our top of the line male in our Sunglow grouping.  This outstanding, massive, Sunglow Super Giant with solid neon yellow coloration and great carrot tail will produce bright yellow Super Giant babies with the same intelligence and friendly personality Ronnie is known for.  He is perhaps the #1 ranked Super Giant Sunglow in the world today.  

Venus, our prize Torrid Tangerine Enigma is ablaze with unbelievable color. Her amazing red and yellow blends, brilliant dorsal stripe, and classic enigma tail, as well as outstanding conformation, make her one of our most highly regarded geckos.

Angel is an amazingly-colored Super Hypo Tangerine Blood Hypo cross female.  Her unbelievably bright orange carrot tail is one of the brightest carrot tails we have ever seen.  Her beautiful body color will continue to brighten and deepen as she matures.  Angel's perfect head and conformation combined with her superb color make her one of the most stunning tangs produced.  Her tangerine offspring will be incredible to say the least!

Sunrise, shown here bathed in sunlight, is a truly stunning male Sunglow. With massive conformation (the legs of a linebacker), vibrant neon yellow color, and a great disposition, Sunny is always a crowd favorite.  People are consistently amazed when they see this gorgeous boy in person.  Our goal in our Sunglow breeding effort is to produce 5 star neon yellow animals, and Sunny is a key player in that goal.  Sunny's favorite pastime is sitting on the couch and watching hockey games!
