    I have a leo, Salvatore. I'm a novice and don't plan to breed him (but I'd like to!) But I have a book called "Your Happy Healthy pet: How to care for your leopard gecko" and in it it says something about artificial summer or something. [​IMG] Sorry I can't help more!

    High-five, other leopard-gecko-person!!!

    ooooh, is he a tangerine? Salva's a jungle type, not really sure, his spots are sort of joined, but not all of them... sweetest boy... here's a pic...

    My parents gave him to me for Christmas from some breeders who needed to get rid of him. He was supposed to be a girl and he fought with the other male. But he's here now, and happy... YAY!

    I havent tried to breed my leopards and likely wont, there are way to many in pet stores as it is , but your choice if you want to , they are fairly easy to breed , just need the correct humidity , heat, and nesting materials.. suggestion would be to look on line for correct breeding instructions.
    I also have a Sahvana monitor, a Ball Python, Grass Keets fish tanks, a ferret and a rabbit in house.
    oops for got about the Madagascian Roaches.

    I do not have one of those but I do have a chinese water dragon that also loves crickets. Ours is about 4 months old and is growing very fast. It is time for a bigger tank. Looking for a used 55 gallon. Good luck with the breeding. We might try to bread ours someday.

    I feed mostly crickets too, ocasionally I give him mealworms (more often they go to the chickens). I feel no sympathy for either bug. I love Salva too much.
