    I'm glad you're enjoying her. The leopard gecko morph situation changes so quickly that a gecko that was an expensive "fancy" type could be nearly run of the mill in a year. That's mostly because...

    I have a feeling they need their mandibles for eating. I've been feeding super worms to juvenile and adult geckos for years and never had a problem. The super worms can nip occasionally but it's...

    Given your incubation temps it probably is close to hatching. Good luck!

    They can probably go quite awhile (months at least) without supplements, which is not to say that it's best to only supplement once every few months. If you really feel your gecko isn't getting any...

    She's a nice looking healthy leopard gecko, but I don't know why she would have been termed "fancy". She's essentially a normal which you can also call "high yellow" meaning that there is a little...

    Glad Marvin is getting such good care. As far as names go, the leachie I mentioned in my post is one who I thought was male for years until "he" laid an egg. Her name is Igor! In the wild geckos...

    As far as I know, if a thermostat is used with the UTH, keeping the heat in the low 90's, it should be OK for the styrofoam (if someone knows otherwise, hopefully they will post here). For heating...

    The males get sperm plugs that are at the opening of the hemipenis. Sometimes the plugs build up. In general, if you push on each bulge you would be able to expose the hemipenis. If you can do...

    They're all different types of succulent and I don't know what they're called either, but the geckos aren't going to eat them and they dont give off any fumes, so I don't think there's a problem.

    I've kept and bred AFT's in the past. They are more secretive than leopard geckos, for example, but I've never seen one bury itself. When I was breeding I kept the hatchlings in a plastic tub in...

    I don't know why you would want those temps, in all honesty. The best floor temp (which your thermostat is providing) is low 90s on the hot side. It can stay like that all the time. If the geckos...

    It's not so common for a leopard gecko without access to a male to produce eggs (I'd say in my gecko population it's less than 10%). If you switch over to using a Gladware container with a hole cut...

    I usually start handling once the gecko is reliably eating. Not everyone would do it that way.

    I have had quite a number of geckos that have that body type. In my opinion, 53 grams is not that heavy at all. Many of my geckos have been in the 80-100gram range and none of them are giants. I...

    In my opinion, the best way to check this with the vet is to act as if you're the one who's confused:
    "I'm just checking that it's 1 Ml of panacur for a 17 gram gecko and not 0.1Ml".

    Good luck...

    Is that 83 in the air or 83 on the floor? it's a little low for floor temp (low 90's is recommended) and a little high (in my opinion) for consistent air temp. I'm not saying that's why he's...

    You probably won't end up with them for the most part. Most bioactive terrariums have isopods (also called "roly-poly's" or "pill bugs") that have to be purchased or found outside as well as tiny...
