About Nadja Vancauwenbergh
My Reptile Interests
After keeping fish for about 13 years, and having water salamanders, I received a tortoise which is now about 22 years old and about 2 kg. I still have one salamander, Twister. He is approximately 18 years old or so. In October, 2010 I bought my first crested gecko that I named Raj, which is the Russian word for 'paradise'. Soon it became clear that it wouldn't take long for me to have more cresties and in January, 2011 I secretly bought my second one, Shay. I've always wanted a bearded dragon, but my parents didn't like that idea. Thanks to the cresteds, I could convince them to buy a dragon too. So on the 20th March, 2011 I finally had my dragon Diego. What a lovely birthday that was 4 days later :) Meanwhile, the crested gecko-mania took over and I just hàd to buy this black/cream pinner that I named Noxy, which means 'goddess of the night'. Pretty suiting for a dark gecko. My expectation or wish for the future is to have some more cresteds as I am a beginner Belgian breeder. A red couple would be nice and a creamsicle is also on the wishlist. Who knows what lovely little cresties I'll find, right ;)
Other Interests
Next to keeping reptiles, I like to go out in evenings, have a drink with friends, talk and laugh. I like to go to theme parks, but It has been a while now. Also, I'm online on the computer often. The usual stuff... Checking Facebook, working on my website, chat... Another thing I sometimes do, is drawing. I went to a drawing 'school' for 3 years when I was +-8 to 11 years old. It wasn't really a school, more like a hobby thing. It never let me go and I still like to draw. Mostly animals because I simply love animals, haha. You can see my crested gecko drawing here: And a frog:
In high school, we were forced to take music courses where we had to learn to play the flute. How bad that was, haha. Good thing it only lasted for 2 years. I always liked piano and guitar, but to play it myself? Not the piano anyway. I tried to play the guitar, but nothing really useful came out. I can play the Russian hymne on it, but string per string, lol, so I stopped. It was more like a wannabe hobby, not an actual course I took or anything. I like music of Tegan & Sara, Pink, 3 doors down, rise against, avril lavigne, Tatu, Cascada, Dixie Chicks, Dragonforce, Flight of the Conchords, Mika, Rebecca Lavelle, The Weepies, Red Hot Chili Peppers and musch more of course. Some names that I don't know by heart etc... Also a lot of Russian music and other languages. I really like languages, that's why I study Applied Languages. Singing is one of my favourite things actually, but I wish I had a singing voice. Now I have to wait till I'm alone in the house. Good thing walls can't hear anything, hehe.
Anna Faris, Johnny Depp, Ashton Kutcher, Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Regina Hall, Renee Zellweger, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Leslie Mann, Brendan Fraser, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Leslie Nielsen and so on... Some Belgian ones: Natalie Meskens, Jan Decleir, Veerle Baetens, Michael Pas, Ben segers, Jan Van Looveren, Hilde De Baerdemaeker, Werner De Smedt and so on...
I study Applied Linguistics (translator/interpretor) Dutch - English - Russian.
Anything else?
My website in English: I also have an English Facebook page: Currently I have 4 crested geckos, 2 females and 2 males. Breeding will start from 2013. Feel free to like my page, thanks!
