    So im sure some of you saw I just recently purchased a baby/juvenile blizzard, its day 3 now and he is slowly just starting to become use to his enclosure. Every once in awhile Ill peak in from the top to see if he is out in about and he is ! but for some reason he hasnt felt that comfortable to eat like crazy, yet I did see him look at a mealworm in its dish, ate it, then went under its rock to hide. my question is, how long does it take for it to fully acclimate and start eating fully? I have a tremper albino that ate the very first day I got him when he was a baby and hasnt stopped lol I guess every gecko is different like us.

    Yup I honestly put 2 in the tank and he didnt even seem to know what they were haha, I'm sure its no big deal because I've had a gecko like this before and he started eating like crazy before after like 5 days, but this one seems to be what you would call " a special child of the family" lolol

    Actually I just tried giving it the remaining meal worms in its dish and it seemed to enjoy them because it ate them! I guess its fine, I dont know why I keep informing you guys on things I already know, If I actually do have a concern ill be sure to keep you guys posted other than that thank you all for the help ill try to stay off GU for a bit so you guys can actually help people with more serious problems regarding their geckos ! good luck everyone!
