    Re: African Fat Tail or Leopard?

    Thanks guys!

    I guess I will be transforming the terrarium into a leopard gecko setup. I will let the eco-earth (Amazon.com: Zoo Med Eco Earth Compressed Coconut Fiber Substrate, 3 Bricks: Pet Supplies) dry some, it is still really moist from the expanding brick thing yesterday so it is overly humid. Any other tricks to bringing down the humidity?

    In the center section pictured, I have what I think is probably a more appropriate substrate: Amazon.com: R'Zilla 11442 Ground English Walnut Shells Desert Blend, 5-Quart Bag: Pet Supplies What do you think about it? I know that sand is bad... this has larger granules than sand. She has spent the evening (since I woke her up to take those last pics) on it under the log. During the day she likes her moist hide.

    There is a reptile show locally the end of next month and then a more regional one the next week. I will try to find her a leopard gecko boyfriend, so if they make babies we will know who was right...

    Walnut shells is actually worse then sand, the coarser pieces are more dangerous to cause impactation.
    I only have mine on paper towels right now. I haven't decided if I should put her on tiles or what yet lol!
    She's a pretty chunky girl! Last 3 pics defintly looks like a leo to me

    Like susan said non particulate substrate is best, papertowel, slate, ceramic tiles.

    Thought you guys could use an updated picture Don't worry, the moss is in her humid hide that I lifted up. Recently redid a new terrarium for her. She's enjoying her gorgeous new slate flooring and seems pretty happy.
