All 3 have eaten today. The lady who brought them also brought 2 boxes of hoppers and a box of mealworms for them. Most of each have gone now with just odd ones still hanging onto dear life, lol

Hmm she still looks small for her age, my Spyro (the female) is 2 years old this month

Make sure she gets lots to eat and her food is gutloaded well and just monitor her weight, if she drops any you may need to separate her, I personally would not breed a female that small, it takes alot of energy/fat reserves out of them

Very nice looking leo by the way

lol, thanks.

breeding wasn't my intention as i only got them today.

i just got spooked because of what the lady said today about digging and then i saw her digging, lol.

probably nothing to worry about but i'll keep my eye on here.

thanks to everyone who helped with her.

i'll keep you posted

If you are keeping a male with them even if breeding is not your intention I can guarantee you it will happen, so if you do not want to breed it is best to separate them as its very unfair on the females, I bred my leos last year and I saw how much of an affect it had on the females, put me off for good

Good luck!
