    @some people:

    Yet I never see reason for such replies. Those are sillier than any question asked and do no justice to the level of the forum or communication in general.

    It wouldn't be my choice to take care of an animal without any prior reading, but just yet I was in the reptile store and this guy in front of me bought two bearded dragons with the entire necessities without knowing scratch about them. The only thing a reptile vendor can do is tell as much as possible and give some good advice.

    Same for the people here. Most you can do is giving good advice instead of venting your annoyance, right?

    I'm only new here but I hope to get the same quality of answers as I've been getting over the past few weeks!! Because you all are a great lot of people who treat others as they would their animals

    I think the rule of thumb is to NEVER mix exotic species. I mean, we all know a cat and a dog can live together, and sometimes maybe a rabbit and cat, but your talking about very very different animals.
    You just should never mix at all, IMO even with different gecko species (Like I know some people think anoles can live with other geckos)
    I have 2 hamsters, 2 rabbits, and 2 chinchillas and I will tell you this, once I had a small ball phyton escape (Which ended my snake keeping, I love my furry animals too much, even though this snake was too small to eat anything but the dwarf hamster I had, having an adult snake was too risky) and my chinchilla Valentine did some major damage (Ha they are not as helpless as you think)
    I am sure it would be the same principal.

    My Vote is No. You will never know what they will happen if they are put in together. Hamster may bite or hurt leopard gecko causing it to drop tail... Not A Good idea.

    I agree that the two shouldn't be mixed.

    Give Sandy a break though. At least he thought to ask before doing it. That isn't exactly something that is usually mentioned in care sheets or books.

    You can learn a lot from these forums so don't let one bad experience turn you away!

    lets just say that geckos are very squishy and that a rodent would have no trouble tearing it up. I have seen even opposite sexed rodents fight and kill each other. Introducing species together that are even from the same locale in nature is not a good idea. This will cause the gecko to be stressed and stress upon the rodent. i know it seems like a cute idea but you dont mix them at all, ever. also consider the bacteria and possible diseases that rodents carry. just dont do it and avoid it completely. to me its like introducing a ferret to a shark, probably not a good idea

    Thanks for the advice to everyone who wasnt a jerk about a question I asked and no im not getting a hamster my sister is, also most people don't know what a leopard gecko is so it's not as simple as dog and cat...,,,

    By the way mariex4 not everyone has owned a hamster before so not everyone knows that hamsters have big teeth
