Hey guys!

I am currently in the process of getting a leopard gecko and all of it's necessary materials.  I thought I'd start a journal on FC, because why not!  I am currently still getting materials, but I think I know which one I am going to get.  I'll add pics of him!  I am getting him on MorphMarket in case you are interested in purchasing.  I should be purchasing him in the next week or so!  I'm really excited!

-Devi

 

(Name ideas are greatly appreciated!)

Adorable! I had a leopard gecko named Onyx, she was adorable. She escaped though, and I never found her...
What morph is the one you are getting?

Oh no! So sorry to hear that! What enclosure was she in? He is a Tangerine Tremper and a possible Het Eclipse... I think his name will be Cosmo. I really like that name and his coloring reminds me of a galaxy. What do you think?

I had one as well, for like 5 years. He got a tumor in his mouth though, so he had to be put down. He was very tame.

Love the name! 

 

My gecko was in a tank but there was a gap near the lid. She was very very young and small so she squeezed out

Yeah, I was going to wait until I got pics, but I haven't got many good ones yet so I'll update later today once I have more time.

It may also be because this is a journal on something other than ants and this is an ant forum.  I contemplated not making it because I like to keep it mostly about ants, but in the end I thought I'd give it a try.

 

Cosmo came on New Year's Day, and I set him up in his enclosure.  He has a 20 gallon tank, and a standard thermogradient to regulate body heat.  He's adjusting very well, and has been eating lots of mealworms and a few waxworms, so that's great.  He really really likes it when I hold food out by his warm hide.  He'll notice it and creep up on it before pouncing on it.  I think he thinks he's sneaking up on his food.  Lol.  I don't know how much I'll update this for two reasons; there won't be much to update, and because I'm going to try to keep most of my posts here ant-related.  I'll add some pics once I get some good ones.  Thanks for the support everyone!
