    Hello, I'm new here. My leopard gecko just yesterday dive bombed from my hands. The height was about 4.5 feet, and right onto tile. I'm worried because she recently went to the vet and is on antibiotics for possible respiratory infection. She seems fine, but earlier today I noticed her opening...

    I have had a look at the sticky posts and what I can find and can't see what I am after. I have had my Leo since 2011. There has been no change to anything apart from about 3 years when I moved and got a new viv. Otherwise feeding routine and has been the same. Has always been on vinyl. Cleaned...

    Hi, I've had my leo for several months now and it's really been a learning experience. However, there's so much info out there that contrasts what others say. Some say you don't need a night light, others say you do. Some say red light damages their eyes whilst others say that it better...

    I got my first leopard gecko back in December, but I'm worried that he has lost interest in food and isn't gaining any weight. He didn't start eating properly for almost a fortnight after coming home, but then was eating 5-10 mealworms every night when I handfed him. However, after a couple of...

    Hi all! My son got a Leo for Christmas and so far, she seems to be doing quite well. We're guessing her to be about 6 months old. She's about 5" long, eats 4-5 small dusted crickets every day and occasionally we give her a mealworm. Right now we have her in a 10 gallon tank with a warm hide...

    Shere Khan is a beautiful brilliant orange 2 year old pet only Tangerine leopard gecko looking for a pet home. She is not to be bred from due to unknown parents as she was originally bought from someone who kept many leopard geckos together and let them all breed randomly. She’s a healthy and...

    Three years ago I made a rather vague announcement on the AHH group that I was starting work on an enclosure for "a really cool gecko from Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India" that would allow the inhabitants to perform all sorts of natural behaviours. The really cool geckos were of...

    Selling two female leopard geckos, approximately a year old. Originally from a breeder who kept all their breeder geckos in a single vivarium together all the time so they have totally unknown genetics. Would prefer them to go to pet only homes because of this. They came to me cohabbed and...

    What's the best way to dispose of sand? (I'm not sure of the type but it went hard if it got wet) I'm switching my leo to reptile carpet so she won't become impacted

    Hello all! So I am looking in to getting a baby Leopard Gecko, but have found some conflicting opinions regarding UV Light, gutloading, and vitamins and calcium. Could someone help me out? 1. UV Light, needed or not? I've seen some people swear Leos need it, and others say they don't. The kit...

    Hi, i would like to build my first wooden viv for leopard gecko. Many caresheets are outdated, but everywhere i found that i need heat mat. Then by accident, i found here in some post, that heat mat is oudated and i should use basking spot - this is exactly what i need to hear, because i dont...

    Hi folks, I currently have a 5'x2' Vivarium available. I've looked around the web and the general consensus is that this size habitat would be ideal for a Leo providing there's plenty of hides and little open space. I'm looking to home one male Leopard Gecko, however I'm a little unsure on...

    Hello! I've been trying to setup a exo terra viv for a leopard gecko, luckily I don't have the gecko yet, but I'm hoping to get one at Doncaster this weekend so need to sort the temperature out asap. My setup is a heat mat on the underside of the glass, hooked into a 100w exo terra thermostat...

    I am thinking of putting self adhesive tiles in my leo's viv. I am going to to stick the heat mat to the underneath of my wooden viv. viv is vivexotic viv/stand-cupboard combo. I am going to be using the ones from poundland. Any one used these or similar. Are they safe when heating from...

    I've got a Leopard Gecko, probably around 1 year old now. She used to come out and wander round the viv most evenings but shes gradually got more and more lazy and stays hidden in the back corner most of the time. Once you take her out of the tank shes still very friendly, nice chunky tail...

    Hi all, been ages since I've been on here so am hoping there are still some folk around that could possibly assist with my question.
