    Red face He Ate! Score!

    Long time lurker, and brand new gecko owner here

    I bought my first leopard gecko - and my first tarantula - this past Sunday (September 10th). The gecko is a male, ember juvenile from UrbanGecko in Ontario, Canada. I believe he's ~5 months old.. but I can't confirm as I forgot to ask. The ember (Murphy patternless x Raptor) gives him solid red eyes, and I can already notice his sensitivity to light. Poor guy had to deal with a very sunny car ride home.

    I purposely fasted him since Sunday as I was concerned he would be too stressed to eat. He has been exploring since last night, and was very calm today while I adjusted his enclosure a tad, so i said why not try to feed him. In went a cricket and a superworm dusted in calcium and left for 30 minutes.. and both were gone! If he stays calm like this, I may try to weigh him sometime next week.

    Just feelin' like a proud little n00b over here!

    (My T also ate for those who cared.. I mean, the cricket was gone after an hour so either it's hiding or the sling ate it)

    Good job! What an awesome feeling, I know!

    Often new reptiles take a lot longer than just a couple days to adjust.
