    Toenails...

    Hi, thank you for responding! At least now I know I don't have to worry. Yes he does have a humid hide, I hadn't seen him use it in this round but I know that he does, especially 2-3 days prior to shedding. I try to keep it wet at all times - it's in such a spot that it's not completely on the...

    Toenails...

    So my leo shed today, and when I went to check on him later I noticed one of his toenails had bent a little & was bleeding. Unfortunately, that toe had stuck shed so I had to get it off. Once I did, the nail came with it. It bled a little bit onto my hands & on the paper towel. Before I put him...

    Brumation

    I don't know if this has been asked before, but I have a male leopard gecko who is roughly 1 year old. I have always heard about brumation but I always assumed it was for females because they are the ones who lay eggs. So first off, do males brumate too? And if they do, what the heck am I...

    Cheap upgrades?

    I've had my leo for a few months now and recently have been wanting to upgrade his enclosure. I tried moving his hides around but he poos right on top of his moist hide and the rock doesn't fit perfectly next to it. I don't have the money to upgrade his tank to a 25 or 30 (it's 20 now). I was...

    cricket care

    I have trays that I put both the gutload & the quencher on. I do get large adult crickets because my leo is an adult & that's what he eats. I just don't feel like its normal to get 60 of them and have him only eat not even half, maybe more & then a few days later (not even a full week) the rest...

    cricket care

    So I need help with my cricket care. The last few times I have gotten feeder crickets, over the next days or so a lot of them seem to die off or are close to death. For example, today there were a bunch of them flipped onto their backs and twitching like crazy. I give them the Fluker's cricket...

    Flash on my phone?

    So I wanted to take a picture of my leo, George, tonight (he was looking extra cute) & I used my dad's phone. I didn't realize the flash was on; thank god he didn't really freak out he just shut his eyes because it was so bright. Obviously, I won't do it again because I've read in other forums...

    Defensive behavior?

    So I bought my very first leopard gecko on Sunday. I have a Zilla Terrarium Liner as "substrate" and I got it dirty already, I spilled vitamin powder all through it when I was putting in the crickets. I haven't handled the gecko very much at all, so maybe this is why... but when I went to get...

    Aquarium for leopard geckos?

    I have a 20-gallon aquarium, originally going to be used for a community fish tank (of course), but then I decided I wanted a leopard gecko. It doesn't open in the front; it has a top that opens half-way with a light attached to it (pics attached). I already have everything I need (decorations...
