    Default Hello from Western WA

    hi all,
    Just wanted to drop in, say hey. I'm here to gather info as I have the information on how to best keep a leo is very contradicting.

    I've learned a lot from the hours of reading that I have done here. I choose to go with a tub rather than tank for now. She/he seems to like it and I'm able to keep the temp's right where they should be, which was a worry because I live in a RV. She/he is eating, pooping, hiding and exploring as would be appropriate for a baby who's only been home for three days.

    Welcome aboard to you and your leo! When your leo is about 6 mo you'll be able to sex him.

    I truly hope that Geckos Unlimited meets your leo's needs. You're definitely correct, there's oodles of conflicting husbandry info on the internet.

    I spent 58 years on Capitol Hill in Seattle prior to moving to the NW Oregon Coast. I'm loving it here.

    Meant to add: !

    Not every leo settles in as quickly as yours seems to have!

    I’ve been strictly hands off, only in the tub to add food. I read a lot of threads about new babies and the most common advice was to keep your hands to yourself and limit hands in cage. She/he became much more adventurous after I added more fake plants which I think gave her|him a better sense of security which made exploring easier and to her/him safer.

    I found a couple feeder escapes so not eating as I thought but not worried about it, yet.

    Keeping my hands to myself is difficult though

    Did you see this link?

    BTW, do you keep the tub covered? Leos can climb!
