    Click on the "Settings" link at the top of the page - should be at the top, right side, but might vary depending on how you access the forum.
    In the "Settings" section, left side "My Settings", click in "Edit Avatar", and follow the instructions.

    I have the same issue with Coleonyx, which are skittish, dainty little geclos. I don't like to handle them, so I simply use a container that they can't climb out of- such as a tall yogurt cup- lay it on it's side, and gently chase them in.

    My leopard gecko is roughly 7 ish months old, which means she is juvenile. I have a 10 gallon tank for her and plan to upgrade to 20 gallon once she reaches 10 months. In her tank she has a moist hide, water, heat mat, stuff to climb on, pretty much what a gecko needs. At night, she climbs around on everything, and I’m worried she might be trying to get out due to something she dosent like in her tank. I know they like to climb, but I’m still worried. Im wondering if her tank might be too small for her?

    I had a baby and that’s just what they do! Believe me I know! She prolly loves the tank and wants to explore!

    Default Question

    So Iíve had my leopard gecko for almost three months and she is a juvenile. After being around her a lot and observing her, I know that she isnít afraid of me anymore. Iíve sheís crawled on my hand before and I lifted it an inch or two off the ground of her tank and she didnít seem to mind. Do you think I would be able to scoop her up now without scaring her too much?

    When you lift up your leo, slowly place your hand underneath her body. Then lift her up. That's far less threatening than descending from above with your hand -- just like a bird of prey might do.
