    Default I've finally got one!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I've been keeping geckos for a while now and ever since I first saw Leachies, I knew I needed to get one. Well, my dream many years in the making has finally come true.
    This little Yate cross was hatched on 8-22-15 and is already a healthy 9 grams. A little flighty right out of the deli cup but I'll give him a week or two before I go start hand taming. My goal is to have a big lump of wrinkly scales that is relatively calm. I was told the parents are calm so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's a trait passed down.
    Still unsexed right now but I've named the little one Kraken so I can refer to it as "The Kraken".
    I'm smitten that's for sure!

    Very cute! I got a leachie about 3 years ago named Igor. Although Igor was easy to handle for quite some time, he did go through a period where he would snap at me if I got too close. This may happen even with a calm leachie and it's a kind of cage territoriality. If it does happen, they usually calm down after you get them out of the cage. This can be a challenge, but you can actually use a cardboard tube (like from a paper towel roll) to gently put over its head while you lift it gently out of the cage. Igor is now tolerating my hand in the cage with no problem.

    What a beautiful baby! Those eyes are gorgeous, too. And what a name! You'll have to yell "release the kraken!" before you get it out

    Thanks guys!!
    As soon as I saw that patterning I just about melted. I love high pattern and high contrast animals! Looks like this little one will have some decent pinks come in as it gets older too!
