Freaking out

Thanks for updating :).

I just wanted to ask a couple questions

I want to make new hides for them out of tupperware (ziploc) storage containers but i worry about the edges any ideas how to dull them other than a soldering iron.

How about smoothing the rough edges with sandpaper or an emory board designed for fingernails?

Aja sleeps on my lap for a couple hours a day and 3 days ago she was interested in the mango i was eating is it safe for her to try (and how about bananas apples or straw berries and grape)

Although a leo may eat some of these fruits, leos are insectivores.

Make sure Aja does not get chilled when out of her cage.


as soon as i get a new camera i will take better pictures only ones i have at the moment are from the week we got them

Excellent!

(and they are no longer in one tank all have thier own setup a mention in a few posts back)

;-)

(any ideas on the new ones morphs i notices on Acacia her back is almost a figure

You can use a match to smooth the edges of a plastic container. That's what I always do, and it only takes a few seconds.

im sorry i feel stupid can you explain that?


I tried emery boards even sandpaper it just seems far to sharp and im worried they may get injured and out littlest baby likes to jump i swear she thinks shes a frog so if she hits an edge i wanna be sure

what about the sticky padding they use for lke the bottom of laptops?

A match. Like this:

It won't be super pretty, but it works.

Hey everyone sorry it's been a while being a mom to a teenager 0.0!!! Updating on the babies, I so wish it was good news. Aja became ill out of the blue, we found out she had a brain issue. We noticed she would spin in circles and I think that topped off with missing her sister she gave up. It doesn't get easier. Our twin terrors were doing wonderful until one morning one of them was looked like attacking the other. Immediatly they got thier own tanks no injuries. Well low and behold shortly there after Acacia the larger of the two popped out an egg. it was rotten and squishy. I fellt so bad. About 4 months later she began to thin out and we tried everything possible we lost her. Now the smallest of all of the babies turns out is a boy. The runt outlasted them all we renamed him Aron. Now he's become super sick. He has good days and bad but it turns out he's got the brain issue as well. I wish I could run into Petco and punch everyone in the face. I know it seems agressive and immature but to have to witness these beautiful babies suffer because of the crappy care hurts me so much. This morning Aron seems to be weakening he drinks from a syringe and the herp vet said theres really nothing we can do at this point. I would show photos but you would be completely sad maybe heartsick. We had even the herp vet come to the house he checked the tanks and flat out said. Whereever your getting them they doomed it from the start. When i picked up worms months ago i looked in a cage they have with them there was about 50 in a 10-20 gallon tank no justice. I wish just once i could get her a baby that isn't sick to begin with and put her through this agony. But I am not even sure where to begin.
RIP Isshi
RIP Aja
RIP Acacia
STAY STRONG Aron

I burned my plastic edges smooth too. Not good for a child to do but I had good results smoothing plastic edges that way.

Hey guys..... Well Aron tried and we tried but he just couldn't get better. I woke up to my daughter crying her eyes out it just sucks!!!. I want to get her new ones but no one sells them here and finding them via online worries me we will end up with sick ones again. I mean who has this luck 4 LG's all passing due to ridiculous conditions we take them from. I can not even stomach going into our local petco anymore to see the tank with the LGS there...And I am being very serious...is about 30 of them in one 20 gal tank they are literally piled on each other. I just hope at some point I find a seller with a clue and heart because no mother wants to see thier child cry over the loss of a friend. Hell when we began anything reptilian made me shake and it hurts to think I lost all my grandgeckos due to carelessness of sellers be it private or public

Hello ~

I'm very sorry that all these leos have passed away. I am sorry for you and your daughter's heartaches. Embrace Calamity and cricket4u are gone. I'm just about the only one left who posted on this thread.

Here's a rose for all of them: @}--;- -

Sounds as if some had enigma issues. If you try again, I'd just get one leo from a reputable breeder. If you have any questions, we can always help. Just be sure to disinfect their cages or even get a new cage. If cryptosporidosis was an issue, it's very hard to get rid of entirely.

When you are feeling stronger, you may wish to contact PetCo corporate. I had occasion to do that several years back. They removed the sand and upped the temperatures on the leo enclosure. Hopefully those improvements lasted.
