    Default Hey everyone! New gecko owner here!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi everyone! I'm a new gecko owner, my son actually received her as a Christmas present and could care less (he's actually kinda freaked out by her). So I inherited her, which is ok by me cause I Love her! He named her Godzilla. I'm not sure how old she is but she's about 5 inches long. I'm actually not even sure if she's really a she! I've never owned any reptiles but have been doing lots and lots of research on how to keep my little Godzilla healthy and happy! I look forward to being able to pick your brains for advice

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I've already enjoyed the conversations we've had, and just reading other posts I'm learning so much! Before bringing Godzilla home I had no idea that leopard geckos have so much personality. It's been so much fun watching her, especially when she's hunting crickets! She does this adorable little tail shake before striking, cutest thing ever!
    I've only just began handling her, I wanted her comfortable in her new home first. We're making baby steps in our friendship. The other day I let her crawl up my arm, she ran behind my head then hissed at my hair, and that was enough interaction for one day! At least I assume it was a hiss, it sounded almost like a little sneeze, but I put her back in her tank after that, no need to stress her out.
    I plan on upgrading her tank soon, my sister bought a 10 gallon starter kit, and it just doesn't seem roomy enough for my liking. So I'm sure I'll have tons of housing questions soon

    Welcome! The people on here are extremely helpful. They helped me on the way to get my first reptile, Flynn. He's a leopard gecko. I hope you have a good stay here!

    Petco has a $1 per gallon sale until the 23rd, so a 20L for $20. It's a really great deal
