Jonathan Boone, global wildlife photographer and researcher, has studied the captive husbandry and propagation of geckos since 1979. His work began at the young age of 14, when he purchased his first geckos from a local pet store and attended monthly herpetological meetings at the Tulsa Zoo. His first geckos included leopard geckos and day geckos of the genus Phelsuma.

Since then, Jon's collection has expanded to include some of the rarest and most obscure geckos in the world. He has travelled globally, with field research emphasis in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and northern and southern Africa. In addition to his extensive field research, Jon has published numerous articles in popular herpetological journals. He has also assisted other authors by sharing findings as well as photographs from his husbandry experience and field research.

Exploring new possibilities, Jon has pioneered several practices in gecko husbandry, including innovative cage design, nutrition and mimicking seasonal rhythms. To educate and inspire others with interest in reptiles, Jon has spoken at as well as coordinated herpetological conferences. Jon has been the first to successfully breed over 200 species of gecko, and has collectively bred close to 500 gecko species. Among his other major advances was his discovery that Colopus kochii eggs can take almost 2 years to hatch.

In his efforts to further scientific research, Jon has provided nearly two thousand specimen samples to scientists, taxonomists and systematicists around the world. These specimen samples have been used to create documentation on new species, to update documentation on existing species, and to provide new localities and distinguishing characteristics between gecko species. (Taken from www.jonboone.com)
