    Default Introducing...


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everybody, just wanted to add to my growing list of posts today by introducing our newest addition Arya. We adopted her about a month ago and she has already adapted to her new 20gL home like she was born there.
    She is about 5-6 months old at most, details from previous owner were a bit sketchy. Because of her age we are not 100% sure of her gender but she shows all indications of being female thus far.
    She has already passed her first exam with flying colors as well. She took a few days to get used to eating Dubias and Superworms instead of crickets but now she gobbles them up and even watches me get them ready for her. She definitely means business when it comes to food, she even mistook my finger for a worm once. So @amsdadtodd I have finally been bitten like you
    We have a pretty good idea that she is mostly a normal/wild type morph but she does have an interesting pattern to her along with some bright orange in her tail so who knows what genetic traits are inside my baby girl

    The first photo is when she first got here, poor girl was nearing her shed so her colors were very dull. The second is more recent and shows off her bright yellow. The quality is not great but taking photos through a glass tank never does turn out well for me.

    She looks wonderful Cory and yay for rescuing her! She looks like she could be hypo, not gonna swear to it. At least she is not camera shy like Apollo

    I saw, though I have not made my way to his thread yet. So much has happened here in my absence that it is tough catching up! Lol

    Welcome to your new little one. Very cute and looks like a hypo to me too (but don't quote me-I'm not great with leo morphs). Reminds me of one I rescued years ago.

    A little more info that I did not share earlier...
    Arya was named after Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, primarily because of her personality and her size. Small but very dominant and feisty. Even though she is all 3 of those, she really does seem to have a sweet and gentle side as well. When she is out she never seems to be jumpy or skittish, she actually prefers climbing on me over walking around on the bed or anywhere else. Like I said earlier, she did bite me and I figure she mistook my finger for a worm in her excitement to eat, wish Apollo still had that but that is another story for his thread. Funniest part about her biting me is that as with all my reptiles and even fish I have had, I always watch her eat because of things I was taught years ago. Feeding is the primary time to check basic health and temperament. Anyhow, her bite was very gentle, underwhelming really. Yet when she eats, the force she attacks with is astounding for one so small. I have to be careful where I put her dish or she moves it with each strike and it can bump the glass.

    Congratulation on your new baby, and on getting bitten finally! Like others above, I'm not a morph guru, but I do believe that lack of spotting on the back makes it a particular morph. Have you checked out Category:Morphs - Leopard Gecko Wiki ?

    Oh, and speaking of getting bit, Puff did finally draw blood today. Frankly, I knew it was only a matter of time, and I had expected it would be either him or his brother Poppy to do it.

    Glad to see you back posting!

    Todd

    Thanks for the link Todd, after looking at all the possibilities, Arya would appear to be a High Yellow, with a chance of Carrot Tail in there. Of course this is completely just speculation since her previous owner kept and knew so little info on her.
    Again, just like Apollo, her morph really means little to me though. Her personality is what made me want to bring her home, and what has made her become part of the family

    Also, hopefully the bite was still minor, even if blood was drawn Todd I give you credit on it happening as often as it does and you not pulling your hand back quickly. Arya was so gentle I didn't realize what had happened until after she let go lol
