    Red face Daughter brought over other leo, Crush!!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi all,
    Just thought I'd introduce "Crush". After the devastating loss of Squirt, she and her boyfriend were just gonna take her to what I consider to be a not very reputable place and just hand her over to them. They have been a fish store for years and great at that but only recently obtained a license for more exotics. So I told her she wasn't doing that, I would take her.
    We buried Squirt last night and we did so as a family (yes, we are wierd....we have funerals for our pets, we are pet geeks) so my daughter Crush over then. She weighs in at 71 grams!!! She's somewhere between a year and a quarter and a year and a half. All she has ever eaten is meal worms with zero supplements. I had to let Squirts crickets go, so I didn't have any to feed her last night. I did dust her worms with calcium plus D3. I'll be looking in to getting my own small colony of dubia roaches as I can't seem to find any anywhere around here. I'll be able to get some to some other Leo owners in the area that way too.
    Too much rambling again....sorry. Anyway, here's some pictures of my girl!!!00000IMG_00000_BURST20190715210144519_COVER.jpgIMG_20190715_204105.jpgIMG_20190715_204205.jpg00000IMG_00000_BURST20190715210144519_COVER.jpgIMG_20190715_204105.jpgIMG_20190715_204205.jpg

    One more thing, I'm thinking she might be a "Mack Snow Rainwater Albino", anyone have any idea how close I might be? Also, exactly how big do they have to be to be considered "Giant"?

    Welcome, Crush!

    Please share a video of Crush walking about. If Crush checks out OK, here's the schedule I recommend.

    Supplements stick better to crickets than to mealworms, so I suggest dusting when crickets are fed.

    Dubias need dusting as well as a nutritious dry diet 24/7. Would you like recommendations? If they aren't fed, their guts are empty.

    Weekly Schedule 126 for Leopard Geckos 18 months old +
    (without UVB)

    • Crickets or dubia >> Monday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Crickets or dubia >> Thursday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins without D3
    • Mealworms >> Saturday - no dusting

    Thank you so very very much. She didn't eat Monday night or last night. I'm sure it's just going to take a few days for her to acclamate to her new home and parents.
