    Look who I brought home!

    Picked this lovely lady up at the Orlando repticon today, I believe her to be 7 months old. It was quite hectic and I was hungry so I'm beating myself up for not asking many questions or at least getting a business card from the guy but I'll be seeing him again in february regardless so I might be able to ask some more questions then.

    Anyway she doesn't yet have a name, and if you're eyeballing her tank, yes I do plan on adding much more plants. You might recall me saying I hadn't anticipated her until February, but I had the opportunity to get quite pretty one today and couldn't turn her down (even tho waiting could've meant getting a cheaper gecko, she was $150). She fires up a beautiful red, I'll be sure to post more pics soon, once she's settled in. I'm not sure how fired down she is in this pic, but she definitely seems much browner than before.

    I have fed her a watermelon + mango pangea, as well, and she's in an 18x18x24. I don't yet have a scale to way her either woops.

    feel free to leave feedback/tips

    Congrats on your new gecko. Looking forward to more pictures as she gets more used to her new home.

    Hey, sorry to bother, but I was wondering if you could answer a question of mine?

    When I put her in her tank, she jumped out of the deli cup, and onto a fake vine thingy, and spent the afternoon there. That night she jumped into some bushy plant stuck to the wall and hasn't come out since. I know it takes a while for her to get comfortable, but how long should it take for her to come out and maybe eat or even move? She's moved a little around her bush, and fires up at night when she wakes up, or wakes up when I spray her tank twice a day. Should I be worried yet? How long before i should be worried?

    I have found gargs of all ages to be pretty sedentary. In addition, nearly all of my gargs and cresties not only don't finish their CGD but also don't really make a dent in it. As long as your garg is growing (slowly) and pooping, it's probably OK. They are really pretty but not the most active of pets.

    Thanks so much. I probably should've waited a bit longer before worrying, as last night she actually moved around the tank before returning to where she likes to sleep during the day.
