    Default A whole new thought... Fleece


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Fleece for geckos... hmm. I have looked it up EVERYWHERE. Nothing. The only thing I could find online was for a balled python, I want one, but I have a leopard gecko.

    It is like reptile carpet, but softer and easier to clean. Let me give you a list of reasons why I use it.

    - Easy clean
    - VERY comfy (Norbert loves to snuggle up in his fleece hide and lie down on his fleece substrate)
    - Doesn't get dirty easily

    I don't about you, but I love to try out new and exciting things for my baby, and fleece is one of them. If you use it, tell me how it is!
    Thank you so much!!

    Could you post a picture and talk about where you get it. You don't find that it gets smelly if they poop on it?

    Yes, I will upload a picture as quickly as possible. My friend sewed 2 pieces of store bought fleece together to fit my leopard gecko, Norbert's, tank. You could most likely get it at any fabric or craft store. I throw it in the washer every few weeks, and I also potty trained Norbert so he goes in one place ( on a paper towel for easy clean up ).
    Thank you so much!!

    Actually Norbert probably potty trained himself since that's what leopard geckos naturally do. It even has a name: defecatorium!

    Really? I just kept moving the poop in one place till he started naturally going there. That is interesting! I'll have to look it up!
    Thank you so much!!

    Well, your gecko would go in one spot but by moving the poop you taught him the place you wanted to go. Although if left to his own devices he would likely choose his own spot. He sounds like a very sweet little gecko! Fleece is such a unique idea!

    Awww! I love the names! Good luck with Bongo! (How long have you had him/her?) I was just at the pet store today, and ALL the reptiles were babies! I had to say my favorites were the cresties. They were SO tiny!!!
    Thank you so much!!

    Thank you! I think Norbert is a cute name as well! I have had Bongo for around a month and a half, he is a small 6 grams compared to my 9 inch long, 75 gram female Leo Arcalis!
