Um one thing I don't understand I always heard that leos could be handled but not extensively.

What are you talking about? Leos are easily handled. I routinely have mine out for at least an hour every day and shes fine with it. She actually falls asleep in my hand!

Well, technically you're not supposed to handle reptiles at all because they are wild no matter what, but leopards are by far the most handleable gecko species if not lizard species to handle.

Herpgeek
07-04-2010, 06:04 PM
...aren't some captive bred bearded dragons I've heard are a must be handled so they can get used to their owner they're technically not all wild since they captive bred true they descend from the wild but that's the same with guinea pigs,hamsters, rabbits, gerbils, and birds

Well, Herpgeek, you'll soon learn that sometimes(not always) the care sheet is wrong. I didn't handle my almost year old leo until a few weeks ago, and her limbs were really thin, and they're noticeably stronger now, only a WEEK!

my geckos cant get enough of it all they seem to want to do is come out of the tank at night which is strange as the temp is fine they love being handled i guess i got lucky cos i hear lots of people complaining about there shy leos. im a bit worried though cos they are so keen on coming out to play i dont see them eat alot although you can set your watch by em pooin each evening so they must be eating ,anyway hi everyone first time on this seems like a worthwhile site take care wes

Geckos are a fine addiction, glad to hear you enjoy the gecko as much as your child does.

Its truly a different world of pet owners here, tons of information and experience to draw on from around the world.

Your life span is also incorrect. They can live upwards of 25 years. There's currently a female named Dink who is 25. Youtube search her. I have a 12 year old female myself who's alive and kicking.

one of mine will do the same. I've had my boy since he was hatched and I started handling him right away. As an adult he's happy to come out anytime. My girl is a little different. I rescued her as an adult and she was never handled until I brought her home. she has made great strides in the last year but she comes out on her terms! Once she's out she's fine with it but it's not for long, she's just a homebody. They are great pets and not just for beginners either.

exactly like mine. my male has been with me as a hatchling and love me. my female rescued as an adult from neglectful owner. comes out on her own terms and doesnt like too much handling.

I've read one of the most basic and yet straight to the point, care sheets on leopard geckos. I'm just as confident as before about attaining a gecko, and enduring into what I've read will be a journey of many years with this amazing species.

do you wanna buy my gecko?
it's about 200grams now
just name your price

if you want to sell your gecko, probably best to put in an add on this site. and as far as your gecko being 200 grams, the world record named godzilla is only 176 grams. Tremper Giant Leopard Geckos For Sale - Big, Beautiful Leopard Geckos! (http://www.geckosetc.com/available_trempergiant.html)
you might want to properly weigh him.

I have two females almost 2 years old now. One of them seems depressed. she has a bloated belly a bit. and a thinner tail. she wont eat and kinda just sleeps all the time. She used to be really keen and active. Im not sure whats wrong. she is in a 20 gallon 2x1x1 tank with her sister. the space is great. she has a moist hide box and three hides in there. repti carpet cleaned once a week. she will and was only eating dusted waxworms. is this the problem? there is no way she is impacted there is nothing in there to impact her.??????!!!!!!

I am concerned because she is not eating and she was completely white this morning when I got up and turned on her light. When I got back from taking my kids to school, about 2 hours later she was back to her normal color. I was wondering if I should leave her light off until she starts the true shedding or just keep her on her routine. She is not eating at all and has not for eaten for going on 2 days. Just not interested. She lives in a 10 gallon tank and is about 8 inches long with a sand terrain. She has two huts and uses a heat pad on one side and a light during the day. My question is should I leave the light off until she completes shedding and should I feed her any crickets during this time? I put one in the tank today and she ignored it, so after a few minutes I took it out. I was scared it would start to eat her. Since I have had her she has been very active at night and still is, but the eating and color of the skin has me concerned. Any advice?

I think I have a Murphy's Patternless 4 month old Gecko. he's yellow with a kind of greenish tint. and his tail is a creamy color. No spots or anything. My question is, Will he gain any kind of pattern as he gets older?

I just adopted a special needs female who is one year old. She is missing the humerus in her right arm, and it is shorter than the others and has three toes. She is a sweet girl who doesn't let her disability limit her. She even climbs up into her hammock. She does have a "calcium boob" under this arm. How long should I leave the calcium out of her enclosure? She REALLY loves her calcium! She licks it up like a cat licks up milk from a saucer.

Carl, my other little guy, is now 34 grams and has both eyes wide open. I would like to see him eat more, but at least he eats 3 crix and 3 waxies every day.

For the life of me, I wish I could figure out how to post a new message on this site!

I love my two leopard geckos soo much but i cant say they feel the same about me. I had to separate them because the larger one would not let the smaller one eat ( it gained 4 grams in 5 days after spearation) i have not been able for anyone to sex them yet but i am pretty sure they are opposite sex. My qeustions are 1.why do they hate me and 2. Should i let them be not separated and finally what can i do for them to like me more

Hey Everyone!

It is great to find a site where everyone shares a common interest LEOS! I have just gotten into collecting and presently have eight (8) Leos.

2 Enigma Albino Banded Snows (?) named Nelly & Chloe - live in a 20 gallon long / not good eaters.
2 Juvenile "High Yellows" (?) - live in a 10 gallon / coming along well. More yellow seen after each shed.
1 Striped Banana Snow/Blizzard (?) - "Short Tail" lives in a 10 gallon with her room mate a Yellow Raptor Hex named "Miss Piggy" (a very good eater).
2 Spotted Snow Leopards - AYLA & JONDOLAR who reside in a 55 gallon Hex. I am told this is a "mated pair".

Right now I just want to make sure they are all settled in and gaining weight. One of my worries now is "Short Tail", as the person I bought the others from insisted I take her as well. So I am nursing her back to health. She sleep a lot but has good body weight. Her tail is s-l-o-w-l-y regenerating. My biggest worry is the Nelly & Chloe who just don't seem to want to eat and are maintaining but not getting fat and sassy. Body and tail weights are low. Tried crickets, wax worms, meal worms, fruit paste etc. but I never see them eating anything. They have ALL the basic stuff UTH, substrate, water, food, hides, room, quiet. Not sure what else to do to get them interested in food? Any suggestions? Thanks........Kimo

Hi,
I'm new to the site. Have had "Lucas" (Leopard) since Aug 2011 & he had 2 homes before that. I'm trying to do everything right. I got him a 20 gal tank, the rock house, the lights (day/night) etc. The 1st several months he ate so well, meal worms, and now the last 2 mos. he doesn't eat. Took him to the Vet a month ago-said he was dehydrated-so have been soaking him in warm water at night. He still isn't eating & I'm so worried. I read the Care Guide, also have a book from Petsmart & Google all the info I can find. Yet, I see contradictions in care. Vet says he must have a UVB light / book says not necessary. Do they need a day lamp with UV or not? I'm scared & confused. Lucas is SO cool & I love him. I want him to be OK.
