    Default First time owner

    Hey everyone!
    Iím a first time owner and this is my baby Pablo! I got him (I say him, but I donít know the gender yet haha) from a pet store as it is difficult to find breeders here. Of course they called him a ďfancyĒ leopard gecko, but I know thereís no such thing haha
    Anyway! They said he is roughly 6 weeks. Does that seem accurate?
    He seems to be settling in well. Of course the first week or so he was very timid, hid a lot, and barely ate. But now he is starting to come around and let me feed him! Heís a picky little bugger though. Only eats mealworms 🤪. But thatís ok. Iíll continue to try and offer crickets.
    I do have a couple of quick questions though.
    1) does he look okay? Healthy? Heís been eating and drinking and going to the bathroom. But as far as size and weight. I know itís not the best picture, but heís still not 100% comfortable as heís only been here for 2 weeks.
    2) is it too early to tell what morph he is? Iím just curious!


    Thanks everyone!!

    The picture is dark, but he looks like Murphy's Patternless. The beige markings will fade and he will ultimately be yellow with a white tail. He looks well proportioned for his size and I have no idea how old he is.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Sewell90 & leo Pablo!

    When sharing pics, first click Insert Inline and then click Done.

    If you have a little time to spare, click the Table of Contents link in my signature for 165 links about all things "leo".

    Sexing Leopard Geckos -- A leopard gecko's gender can be confirmed when that leo is over 5 inches in total length. That may happen when the leo is near 6 months old. Males can be distinguished from females by a distinct /\-shaped row of pores above the vent and by two hemipenal bulges below the vent. To see their vents, potential male pores, and hemipenal bulges gently press their bodies up against the glass. They'll squirm if you try to turn them over.
