    He arrived today and I hadn't planned on getting him until Saturday but I decided that since everything is ready to go, I may as well get him now. He's so tiny! I couldn't help but snap a couple of photos before forcing myself to leave him alone. Hehe.

    Thanks! He or she is actually my first herp. ^.^ So naturally, I am a very nervous new owner, but I've spent the last three weeks learning everything I can to make sure that they do okay.

    How cute is he, he looks nice and healthy!
    Congratulations, I'm sure that you will enjoy each other. I also think that you will make a great owner, you have done your research prior to even getting your little one.

    Look forward to more photos once he gets settled in and watch how he changes as he grows :)

    He (she) is a good looking little guy. I think you will enjoy the experience once he settles in. I had my leo gecko for almost 15 years and she was a great pet!

    Wanted to share a couple of other photos - he really is a different little guy than he was when I brought him home last week. He's more energetic, active, and just all around looks healthier and happier.

    What a cutie, I was really scared he wouldn't bounce back.

    And here's a few updated photos. He's gorgeous and coming along very nicely. :)

    My precious baby. I love him so much. I'm also working on a more "natural" cage with lots of cover and some foliage, although we're going with a desert theme so it will probably be fake cacti of some type.

    I had to thread stalk you...I wanted to see how big he was getting. He's such a cutie. He always looks like he's just been caught getting into trouble in his pictures.

    Thank you, he truly is the star of my heart. He's always climbing on stuff too! And when he is too hot he bats his hide away from the heat then when hes cold he puts it back.

    Been feeding him (or her) a mix of mealworms and crickets, I prefer to dust the mealworms but do the crickets as much as I can as well.

    Here's a couple of new photos:

    I keep on being tempted to get a toad or something like that to add to the family, but right now isn't a practical time.
