    Smile Hiya Folks


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everyone,

    I stumbled across this forum by accident so I thought why not register and join the community.

    I am at the research stage before getting my very first Leopard Gecko so this forum will be so helpful and while I am new to lizards I'm not new to reptiles, I also keep snakes, tarantulas and I have a little moggie cat.

    Anyway, without boring everyone with details about me let me just say a big hello and if any of you have any useful hints/tips/advice to share with a newbie, then it will be very warmly accepted.

    Thanks and hello again

    Thanks for the warm welcome and yes I always do thorough researching before I get any new pet, before I got my snakes and spiders I did weeks and weeks of reading.

    Thanks again.

    Yay! I love when people do research first. So smart! Kudos to you!

    The only advice I have for you other than what has already been shared is to buy from a breeder or adopt... avoid the pet stores.

    Thank you, I always do proper research first before commiting to any animals.

    I know, I would never buy animals from pet stores as I prefer to know exactly where my animals have come from and who bred them, am speaking to breeders and I also have a very good reptile shop close by, 2 of my snakes came from there and they are a very good place for reptiles.

    I love all reptiles. I spent a while on a snake forum, and that kind of spurred my love for snakes in particular even more, but I always have. What kind of corn? And I'm so jealous of the MBK! They're absolutely stunning snakes! I have an albino striped Cali king that I just got a few weeks ago. I probably won't go too much into snakes though, since geckos are really 'my thing.'
