We may be getting a leopard gecko. A friend of ours had a friend who is looking to rehome theirs. I talked to the lady a little earlier and she is going to make sure her son really doesn't want to keep it any longer and if so, we will go look at it in a hour or so. I have had snakes and newts before, but never a gecko. We have a 10gal fish tank that is cleaned out and available if we do bring this gecko home, plus the lady is going to give us the heat pad and some other things they have for the gecko. I have done some research online and went and talked to a guy at a local reptile shop, but I'm always on the hunt for more info (I am an obsessive researcher, I usually research things to death before moving forward with them). So what things do you think I should know before getting a creature such as this?
