    Really!?!?
    I think they are the best looking gecko out there, besides the leaf-tails.

    Leechies are cool, as are gargoyles, both quickly becoming the new trend in reptiles.
    And both are pricey.

    Leos are just too boring, and I like tropical terrariums . . .

    What are you feeding that guy?
    Have you tried roaches?
    Mealworms are a terrible food for any reptile, the meat to shell ratio is wayy low and the chitonous exo causes impaction ALL THE TIME . . .

    I have a Leo too. He's some odd variety, I can't remember the name... Pastel Normal maybe? I don't know.

    He's blind as a bat, though, I feed live crickets (4-6 every 2 days) and he has to see it move a millimeter in front of his nose to chomp it. Idiot.

    I don't like to feed mealworms either, whisperer. Our supply for crickets is far away so I have a tub in the fridge in case he runs out of chirpers, but I would never feed them on a regular basis.

    I'm lobbying for a red-tailed boa... [​IMG]

    he's pretty. i was plannin on getting crickets here soon. i hate my reptile store. it used to be great, but they switched owners and now i can't stand going in there. sometimes they have their 10 yr old daughter running the counter while the parents hold up the line to talk with other costumers and joke around. i waited 10 mins one day and then walked out.

    Awwww! I have an african fat tailed gecko in a 20gallon long. Then I have another 20L so I wanna put two baby female leo's in there. And I have one extra tank set up for a male gecko...not sure if a leo or aft yet. PLus I reallly want crested geckos so im saving up to buy like a 30g.

    Anyways here is my Gabriella:
