    I've had my new leo for a little over a week and she's eating really well but wouldn't use her humid hide until I switched it from sphagnum moss to paper towel. She's in it all the time now. My one concern is when she starts laying eggs she'll need a different substrate in it so she can dig. I...

    Hello Dear Reptile Lovers, It's been such a long time since I've posted on this forum, One of my male geckos have been having trouble shedding, so my local reptile shop (who are amazingly helpful and good to me) told me to to buy some Coco Fibre for the moist hides as it helps them shed a lot...

    I've always used moss in my moist hides for helping shed but due to work I had to delegate the shopping to my daughter and mum and they have proudly presented me with a brick of coco fibre at a fraction of the cost is this okay to use instead? There is nothing on the packaging apart from a...

    OK, at the moment I have my standard hide my leopard gecko lives in (almost always in there) which is in the warm area, and I have a half coconut shell hide in the cool end which I have never seen him in. I was wondering, do I need to give him a moist hide at all times? Would that be in the cool...

    i have been using paper towel in minnies moist hide for as long as ive had her, i change it everyother day and i think its quite wasteful. things like moss or eco earth make a lot of mess from what ive heared and i thought about using something like a flanel or towel material that can hold water...

    Hi - first post of many I expect. I am currently setting up a Leopard gecko Vivarium at School. I have a Vivarium and heat mat + temp control and some reptile carpet for the floor. What I now need advice on is where to put the hides. Do I put one hide at each end and one in the middle...

    Hi, My leos did the deed about half a week ago now and I was just wondering how easy their eggs are to spot. Do they bury them in their moist box? or will there always be a little bit of egg poking out? I check her box daily and have a little dig around but I don't want to dig around and hurt...

    I bought my leopard gecko from a reptile shop a few months ago. She is an adult and has been eating (only locusts) until recently. For a few weeks I have been putting one or two locusts in and she has ignored them or just sniffed them and turned away. She was eating about 2 every 2 or 3 days to...

    From general forum/website browsing (here and elsewhere) and book reading, I've gotten somewhat confused. Some people suggest putting the moist hide (for a leopard gecko) on the heat mat to create a humid atmosphere (although you need to spray every day to keep it damp), and other people...
