    Default Introducing the terrible terror, Wyrm


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    His full name is "The Lumbling Wyrm of Briarmont Hill" in reference to the famous Wyrms (or worms) of the 12th-15th centuries in Europe.

    Gotta say I watched him stalk a mealworm last night with very stealthy dragon-like seriousness and it was probably the curtest thing I've ever seen.

    Wyrm -- What a distinguished name! Are you a history lover too?

    Yes, very much a history buff. The legend of the The Lambton Worm from the 1400's is my favorite

    Glad to report that Wyrm has found his moist hide and has been spending time in it. I felt like a horrible person this morning because I had to re-moisten his moss and when I gently moved him and he squeak-barked at me...it was such a pathetic little threat that I just felt mean :/

    He also ate 3 dubia and 2 meal worms overnight. So I think everything is going well so far.

    When leos are as small as yours they are "temperamental". When I bought mine, he was as small as yours. He was the only gecko in a table of them at Repticon that was mouth agape...in major flip-out mode. I was like, "I like him, he's feisty...I'll take him". I was so use to my previous gecko being nice and calm...the new guy went berserk first time I put my hand in the tank to move things around...reared up, tried to bite me. Enjoy this time with your new gecko because when they are small juveniles they are the most fun and entertaining, IMHO.

    I hardly pick up my leo at all unless I really need to. The other day I was wiping up his tank floor with a damp paper towel and he was following my hand around, so I placed my hand onto the tank floor and he went crawling up my arm...not because he likes me, LOL, but because I offer a way out of the tank. He's full-grown now and I was surprised at how strong he was (his grip). Anyway, I had to pull him off my arm with the other hand and he let out this little growl. It almost sounds like a new born kitten, LOL. He had just eaten too, so you'd think he'd be in a docile state, but no. Grouchy!

    He goes between curious and feisty. Some times he screams at my hand when I, moving things around / changing water / etc, other times he will climb up and gladly sit in my hand and allow me to feed him.
