    He looks great and at that size I don't think you have to worry if he stops eating for awhile, even if it's a few weeks.

    Not sure why that one is upside down. I posted it right side up, so I don't think I can change that. I also will be purchasing some calcium supplement with D3 for feeding time from amazon, I have prime so it will get here in a few days, so I can start feeding him correctly! I've had him for almost 6 years and nothing so far has gone wrong, so I'm really happy that I have been getting such good advice!
    Da Vinci looks good. Thanks so much for sharing his pictures.

    Which brand calcium with D3 are you buying: Zoo Med, Repashy's, other? Some brands are better than others. It's easy to get them confused. Will you be getting some multivitamins withOUT D3 as well?

    Check out the Reptile Supply Co based in Lodi, California. One can't beat their prices.

    These tips might help you post a video of Da Vinci walking on some solid surface like a carpet, not on a squishy surface like a couch or a pillow.

    Here is the video of him walking, doesn't seem funny to me, but let me know what you think! It is of him walking on my comforter on my bed, it's a firm bed and the comforter is pretty thin, so I think it mimics carpet pretty well. I don't ever put Da Vinci on the floor, and while his tank is large it isn't big enough for me to get him walking for this long. If you want I can record him walking on my kitchen table or coffee table. Also as a disclaimer normally he doesn't scamper that fast, I had just had him in a shallow bath to help soften the skin on his fingers and toes so he decided to be really quick and walk way faster than what he normally does.

    As far as calcium, I haven't looked into any brands yet. What do you use for your geckos? I will also buy a multivitamin without D3, right now all I have is the repticalcium which has moisture and calcium listed, and no D3. I plan to do some amazon shopping tomorrow but I would appreciate a recommendation so I know what to look out for in a good brand.

    Can you record him walking in the bathtub for 1 minute? What I'm looking for is an uneven front arm gait where he's leaning towards one side as he walks, so he's kinda lopsided.

    Last I checked, Amazon did not carry Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins withOUT D3. The Reptile Supply Co has them both at awesome prices. I have used Zoo Med's supplements for years. You'll need both these Zoo Med products. Request the latest expiration date possible. Buy the smallest sizes.

    As per request, here is Da Vinci walking for a longer period of time. I put him in an underbed storage container, I lined it with fabric to give him better walking ability because the whole inside is smooth plastic. He didn't really want to move today, so I got a few bursts of him walking slower than the other video.
