    I just recently got a free leopard gecko off of Craigslist. I have done some research and I think I’m pretty good for now. I have him in his (I think) 40 gallon exo terra enclosure, his singular magnetic hide, his two bowls and then they had him on heat lamps. They had no bulbs in them so I used...

    Physical care concern

    I had Groot out today to run around a bit, just as I was getting ready to put her back into her enclosure she was doing this “gasping” like thing. I’m not sure if she lost her breath or if she was choking on something. This is the first time she’s done this, I’m wondering if I should be greatly...

    New gecko issues?

    Hello all! I recently bought a albino juv leo gecko, and so far, he's pretty okay, but there's some things I'm a bit concerned of. He arrived this morning, and after being in a box all day and night, I figured hes just tired, but it's always good to be sure. He's very sleepy, opens his eyes...
