Aliza rediscovered her childhood love of reptiles 20 years ago and since then has kept and bred a variety of gecko species including leopard geckos, crested geckos, garogoyle geckos and Southwest Banded geckos (coleonyx). Matching her love of these engaging creatures is her desire to share her knowledge and ensure that keeping reptiles is accessible and productive for everyone.
She shares her home with her husband, cats fish, 39 geckos and 1 bearded dragon.
Aliza has kept geckos, primarily leopard geckos since 2003. She was a gecko breeder for 13 years (2005-2017) and editor and frequent contributor to Gecko Time.
