Enjoy my website!

Here you get an insight into my creative work, my discoveries, the love of nature and facts worth knowing. Of course, my dear animals are also in the spotlight and I give you more insights into my life. The pictures and videos are rarely new. However, I have almost always revised them and let my current mood flow into them as well as into the words. Since February 2019 I have already published 776 posts with a total of 1,184 pictures and videos. If you like what you see here, I would be happy if you follow me on Instagram. You're guaranteed not to miss any of my posts there and you'll get to see even more.

I am a German artist and micro influencer from Oberursel in Germany. My work focuses on the concept of biocultural diversity and the consequent interaction between art and science.

What is biocultural diversity?

Learn about the importance of biocultural diversity: why it matters, how it affects our environment, its influence on our well-being, successful conservation projects and how we can promote it.

Leopardgeckos - Eublepharis macularius

My leopard geckos (Eublepharis macularius)
Arsinoë, Loki and Bruce.

Leopard geckos are most active at twilight and night. You can also see them sunbathing during the day.

The terrarium has a size of 120*60*60 cm. In the front right you can see the entrance to a wet box. Inside is moist coconut soil. The geckos like to go there to prepare for their moult or to lay their eggs.

The data marked with ⌀ is the arithmetic mean of the highest and lowest temperature in the terrarium. The values are based on the historical average temperatures in Hyderabad, Pakistan. Although temperature peaks do occur in nature, they often lead to suffering and death in the natural life of wild animals. In the wild, the cold-blooded animals find numerous hiding places with the right conditions. These include, for example, abandoned rodent burrows or cavities between and under stones. As soil dwellers, they are exposed to the natural cooling capacity of the soil (evaporative cooling) and in winter the heat capacity of the soil comes into play. In a terrarium you try to reproduce the natural habitat of the inhabitants as well as possible and you have to take this into account.

Animals are fascinating, many can be kept as pets. Each animal has its own requirements. Beyond the species-typical requirements, each individual has its own characteristics that need to be recognized and taken into account. This applies to dogs as well as to horses, scorpions and geckos and all other animals.

You have to have enough time and interest for that. Some animals like to interact with humans, others are just there to watch. Because I show my animals here, this can of course create an incentive to get such animals as well. However, the fact that almost all of my animals have been adopted by me proves that such purchases are often made imprudently. I'll still share my joy in animals with you, but I'm concerned that this will give off harmful impulses.

Please do not only inform yourself, but also consider whether you can and want to be there for the animals in the long term (lifelong). And please also make provisions for what happens to the animals if something happens to you (accident, illness, death).
