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

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.My Mini Zoo
