I have had a similar thing happen except my leos were eating mealies out the bowl and Disco was licking his lips and Sherbet thought it was a mealie and decided to bite his tongue!:main_lipsrsealed::main_yes: it was funny until Disco thought it would be safer to wait until Sherbet had finished to go back out and eat hahaha!:main_laugh:

Lol, aww! Poor guy, it's never fun being tongued out of no where!

Aww, poor thing! lol, I actually saw a video on youtube of a person feeding the same time and one bit the other's bottom jaw and held on for way too long, it looked like it hurt so bad...and they shouldn't have been PINKY feeding one gecko with another like standing there...which was what happened. @[email protected]

One of my leos jumped of one of the hides that was 1 foot tall. He did a front flip and then scurried in the hide!

Late one night shortly after I bought my 2 leopard geckos, (Ren and Stimpy) I saw Stimpy climbing the tree I have in their aquarium and she fell out of it. I checked on her later and she was in her hide. A little later I heard a thump similar to the sound Stimpy made when she fell out of the tree. I went over to the aquarium to see if Stimpy caused the sound I heard and there she was directly below the tree.:main_yes: No worries though because the drop is less then 1 foot.

I bought her from the person who bred her and he probably had her in an enclosure that never allowed her to climb such heights.

OH MY GOD!!! DID HE DIE? DID HE PUKE IT UP? WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED AFTER?!?!?! DID HIS BODY JUS DIGEST IT?!?!
I'm wondering the same. I didn't know that was possible.

How could one hatchlings mouth and digestion system accommodate a meal like that?

mine is a little slow when it comes to feeding time. in addition to trying to attack meal worms through the side of her plastic dish, she also attacks SHADOWS. when i pick up meal worms with the tongs, she will lung and strike at the shadow of the meal worm on the paper towel substrate. sometimes she figures it out and looks up and sees the actual meal worm, but not before attacking the meal worm's shadow several times.

Most gecko humor involves eating, doesn't it? :laugh:
My leo simply would NOT eat his phoenix worms at first - ate one, spit one out, wouldn't touch 'em after that. Not on the cage floor, in a dish, anywhere he'd normally eat crickets or mealies. For over a week he just didn't eat.
Then one day he was sitting around staring at me from the cool hide, and I decided to give it another go. Lo and behold, he snapped them out of my fingers until I didn't have any left in the cup. Apparently he'll eat anything if I hold it for him.

The funny thing was, he chews SO much more with the phoenix worms. I think they wriggle around more or they taste strange or something. :laugh: He'd open his mouth all the way like he was chewing taffy and then keep smacking his lips and licking his face. If I wasn't busy feeding him like crazy before he decided to stop eating again, I'd have taken a picture... he looked like a frog. :tongue3:

Here is Ghost, our Mack Snow Enigma male, he thought it would be fun to roll around in his calcium dish and make a mess. But that wasn't enough, after he did that he went and rolled around in his food dish until he got tired and fell asleep in it...
Lol, to funny.

I was holding my new Leo GLaDOS with my dog Ellie in the room. Ellie was sleeping on the floor and GLaDOS noticed her. GLaDOS then runs full speed off my hand and leaps onto Ellie's back. I was so scared Ellie would eat her but luckily she just looked around like she had no idea what had just happened.

Wow that is crazy!

The funniest thing I've ever seen one of my geckos do is climb the screen top of her cage. Then walk from one end to the other upside down before getting back down.

Ohmygod! Ahriman did this once as well! They ended up falling and were fine, but man did I have a heart attack. It was a sliding top so I wouldn't be able to get them down without shaking the top and them tumbling. That is for SURE one of the weirdest things I've seen Ahriman do. She also likes to pretend that they're an arboreal gecko and try to climb the glass and often sleeps on the top of the trees in her tank. Neara climbs her tree sometimes too.
So I'd say overall climbing is the most interesting thing I see them do!

All of mine do weird things lol

One of mine loves to climb weird things, like her screen top upside down. Then I have one male that must adore being held because if I'm cleaning the water bowl or something he'll run out as fast as he can and leap up onto my hand or arm so I can hold him. I have one girl who once tried to eat something (that i guess she saw reflected?) on the glass of the tank, so she was sitting there with her mouth wide open trying to bite down on something that wasn't there.

I don't know if I have any other particular quirks, but all of them do little weird things. Anyone who says they each don't have little personalities must not know a leo :)
gosh all of your leos make mine seem so grouchy... Only funny thing she does is when she has crickets she sits there on her house, perched on the end with her tail waving back and forth.

Snowdrop, my blizzard girl, is my favorite of the two leos because she has such a personality. A few weeks ago I was listening to harp music on the computer and she was watching through the glass, slowly tilting her head from side to side like she was trying to figure it out.

Just a little while ago I rubbed her back and she turned around and licked my finger. How sweet! A gecko kiss!

Here's a picture of her.
