    Question Would appreciate some advice


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello,

    I have been doing a lot of research on Leopard geckos recently. I recieved a grant through Petco to have a class pet. I would love to buy from a breeder in order to know more background. However, my grant limits me to petco (I recieve 50% off and no taxes). This brings the cost down to almost nothing (15-20 range).
    With that being said, I have begun visiting my local pet store to view the little leopards. I fall I love every time.
    Recently i found these 2 and was wondering if anyone could tell me any information about them. Estimate on age? Morph? Adult size? 20190213_174113.jpg20190213_174951.jpg20190213_174005.jpgI also know that there is a giant morph. I would want to keep the size smaller if possible. Any info is appropriated.

    If all their body spots ultimately disappear they will be super hypos. If 10 or fewer body spots remain they will be hypos. If more than 10 body spots remain, you can call them high yellows. They look pretty good for Petco geckos. Don't choose a small skinny one because you feel sorry for it. Get the biggest, healthiest one you can find. Do research on what leopard geckos need as opposed to trusting Petco to tell you what they need.

    Hello Eliza,

    Thanks for your suggestions. I keep searching around. I am one who like different, when I came across this guy! I have been doing my research like you suggested and think I have a pretty good set-up. I wrote about it in the intro section. I felt pretty comfortable getting him from this Petco, considering they were able to tell me the age and provided me with accurate information that I have been finding on here and websites. I can't believe all the different morphs there are! I feel like I have stumbled onto what could become a dangerous hubbie! For now I will stick with just one.20190214_164807 (1).jpg

    I started with just one about 16 years ago. It is a dangerous hobby (possibly more dangerous than my hubby!) but it's been well worth it.
