    This is why I've always avoided females,even with no male around they will develop egg follicles and have to lay them or become egg bound.

    My gecko looks skinny (like the one with the skin ripples pictured about 1/3 way through) and I can’t β€œfatten β€œ her up. Tried everything (her tail is fine). Thinking she is just a small gecko but I’ve been paranoid

    What type of tank do you use for your leopard geckos

  7. author

    Invader.SphinxJam Yang lalu

    I joined in companion animal classes in my school and I've only been there a few weeks but already I know that leopard geckos are supposed to stay out of sandy terrain and their tails are supposed to be fat and plump. Leopard Geckos use their tails for balance and fat storage, the geckos in the photos are extremely starved and/or malnoished and you can tell that by looking at the tail only. Honestly, it breaks my heart that petco could do this and that the employees there could let this happen. It should be obvious that they are in pain and are hungry, just look at the tails. This is honestly disgusting.

    Oak material contains tanning agents and aldehydes which are poisonous to consumption and can lead to troubles when being breathed in. I avoid any prolonged exposure of my pets to oak material.

    The American learned all kinds of U.K. slang today. I had to look up "conkers." However, I was able to figure out "fairy liquid." Strange how we can speak the same language, yet..........not. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ As a baker, I cannot comprehend how you only have "gas marks" and not temperature sets. I'd burn everything.

    Awesome video! I recommend using boiling them since it will real ease tannins but if you are using them for land reptiles it’s ok to heat them.

    The only reason to boil wood that long would be to remove tanins so your tank does not turn yellow, personally I like the tint it gives my tank and it is good for the fish as this is more in line with their evolutionary environment. . Water is safe to drink after boiling it for only a few minutes so it makes no sense to boil wood for six hours.

    i just got a new leopard gecko from petsmart. petsmart took horrible care of him or her (i think a him). his tail is broken off and its just horrible. he was freezing when they handed me him. hes very afraid of everything and they just grabbed him. they also told me to take him out in the morning rather than the night, of course im gonna hold him at night because morning he will be getting ready to rest. hes spooked very easily and his tail doesnt seem to be growing back greatly. it seems thin...

    It's pretty much always been understood that many/most animals can see red light (depends on what cones the species has). It's just a lay misconception that they can't see it, stemming from the use of red lights for viewing nocturnal animals. When the reality is that red doesn't stimulate the autonomic nervous system like blue light does.

    Hi, I am a long-time viewer and I got to love leopard geckos and I now have one she is a year old and will be two in April. I am worried that she isn't doing well could you remake a video about how to check their health and what is to notice if there's a problem. I have been recently noticed that when I feed her with tonges after she eats the mealworm she puts her head down and shakes her head from left to right. I don't know if it is just her trying to tell me that she wants a different food or that if she is having issues. If you respond it will reassure me and if it's bad I will take her to a reptile pet.
