    Actually some leos do climb very well. When my gecko was a baby, I made her 3 stories of paper towel rolls. She could have fallen off, but she didn't. Many people use many levels without problems. Some leopards don't use them and some do. It is basically just what their personality is like.

    Sure. But if leos fall, they aren't equipped with the ability to absorb the impact as well as an aboreal could.

    Hey Matt,

    I am well aware off their solitary habits in nature, but I believe a partner off the opposite sex (that's what I actually ment with 'a buddy') does indeed stimulate more natural behaviour, such as courtship, breeding, etc. A lonely male will not perform any activities related to breeding, if it's alone. The same goes for females. I believe you miss a beautifull part off their natural behaviour if you only house a single male or a female. But that's just my opinion...

    one of my geckos is almost always in a certain hide and the other tends to be out more, he likes stretching out like a cat under the lamp and he'll nap like that forever or he''ll sit in his water dish, he's more active while the other isn't so much, to feed him i have to take him out of his hide otherwise he just sits there, he's pretty shy. leos tolerate handling well, but you have to get them used to interaction with you. a woman gave them to me i guess her husband lost interest and they were super skiddish and squirmed and made odd noises at me any time i touched them, now they are well behaved boys that love to come out for visits. i'd give him a few weeks, at least he's eating thats always a good sign, some just tend to be more inactive and hide more while others not so much. depends on your gecko

    I have found that every single leo I have has a different need/desire/behavior. I am not a breeder, I would say I am a collector *LOL* and I have only been doing this about 6 months so let me start this by stating I am no where near the professional on geckos and their life... I can ONLY tell you what I have observed with MY OWN geckos...and seriously that's all anyone can do...but the difference in my statement and some others statements is that I dont claim it to be the gospal... its only the gospal according to ME!

    I have 16 geckos.. 6 tanks... I have 3 females and 1 male in one 75 gallon tank... they have organic dirt, clay, sand, tile flooring I have a hot and cool side keep a room ambient temp at 85 degrees. The room is about 60 percent humid, but the tanks are usually about 40% humid they have moist hides and they have several little dry hides to choose from... almost ALWAYS I find a different one in a different spot every day... MY GECKOS seem to like a choice....just like humans.. sometimes we want a comfy sofa, others a soft mushy bed, sometimes a hammack outside, sometimes we want the AC on sometimes we want the heat on...some people are comfy in a suit and tie going to work, some people prefer shorts and flip flops....I have found that just like humans, although they prefer warm over cold about 99% of my lil guys like something different every day!

    So as for the "tank mate" "buddy" or "companion" sometimes you'll find geckos that do better with tank mates, sometimes they do better alone.. You just have to do a trial and error with them all.. or, like I said, that's atleast what I have found with my wee ones!

    Good Luck, have fun!
