Colorado couple grabs the market on geckos

If all they make you think of is car insurance, then you don’t know geckos.

So let Ray and Carol Rehner educate you. The couple recently opened their new all-things-gecko store, Designer Geckos, in Hygiene.

“The gecko business is really big around the world,” Ray Rehner said. “The U.S. is just kind of catching up.”

While the lizards are found in some pet stores, the Rehners are building a business around the scaly little creatures.

“It’s the only (store of its kind) in the United States, for sure, and possibly in the world,” said Ray Rehner, who said he has been an animal lover since he was a boy.

The Rehners, who have lived in Hygiene for 12 years, got their first leopard gecko early in 2009.
