    Default Hello from Edinburgh


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello,

    New to the forum, and recently set up some Bioactive vivariums for my leopard gecko girls, and just wanted to share.

    This is Ember my tangerine:

    This is Pehu my sunglow:

    This is Zeba, my wildblood:

    This is Muna, my super hypo:

    This is Farah, my blazing blizzard:

    Still settling in, but one thing that took me by surprise was the full on burrows that they started constructing, really cool to see. They definitely enjoy climbing too, so the height provided is definitely working out.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hello and share some pics of my girls.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Welcome aboard, Chris! Thanks for sharing your leos and setting them all up bioactive!

    Watching your leos construct their own burrows must have been exciting! They're feelin' "at home" right from the geck-go.

    Just letting you know that only Muna's and Farah's images are showing up.

    Thanks Elizabeth,

    Hopefully I’ve sorted the images now, how strange!

    Yeah it’s been great to watch them, and they seem to be loving their surroundings.

    Pehu and Farrah are skinny and look younger than Zeba. They can become lunch. It’s best to house separately. They can end up injured fighting over food or accidentally. I’ve seen cases in which one gecko mistakenly bit another ones tail thinking it was an insect moving. It’s really not worth it. Here is a video of a fight over food. Could have ended up a lot worse.

    You're welcome.

    I can see the whole family now.

    Yeah those two are younger but are putting on weight fine so far. I had Pehu and Ember first and they are together in their own Vivarium and are best buds, always curling up together. When feeding Ember is always more confident and takes crickets out the tongs until full, then Pehu will come and feed. The other 3 are in a separate Vivarium, and I’m keeping a close eye. They have plenty of space, and feed separately but I was thinking I might move them to keep the 2 youngest together, but I am monitoring it closely for now.

    Cheers

    Chris
