    Help me plan the enclosure for my first Leo?

    So I got a big enclosure for free that’s 2.5x1.5x1.5 feet. The previous owner had a leopard gecko and with some research I’ve found this is a good size for a leo, and I’ve been wanting one since I was 5 so I think it’s time to start planning for one. I am slightly worried about the glass top...

    Heating Mat Question/Recommendations

    Hello Everyone, I have had my leopard gecko, Chauncey, for about two years, and I have had the same heat mat the entire time. I have a thermostat hooked up to it to control the temperature and keep it at 89 degrees F. However, lately it has not been getting above 84 which I know is too cold...

    (As a side note, her enclosure setup is much nicer now. This was when I first got her and I was somehow under the impression that she only needed two hides. She now has a fabulous cave with is her favorite.)

    Mouth Rot? Or Scar Tissue?

    Hi everyone, this is my leopard gecko Tango (7mo male) and when I brought him home (1mo) he was full of bad shed wounds on his head, upper lip, and nose area. The worse of it was on his upper lip, though. I hoped that with each new shed it would become less and less apparent which was thankfully...

He has been laying in his cooler side for...

    Leopard gecko dropped tail

    One of my leopard geckos escaped last night (quite literally pushed through a tiny foam piece that covers a small opening in her tank - which is smaller than her body so i don’t even know how she got out), and we found her this morning with her tail dropped and a tiny cut on her side. I have 3...

    Bite wounds?

    I just got my leopard gecko and I was wondering if this looked like a previous tank mate bite wound? Or stuck shed? I don’t think it’s shed because he had no interest in the humid hide he has but it’d be nice for a second opinion helena

    Help? (normal activity level?)

    Hello, we could use help!

    Hi! We are new leopard gecko owners. Our son got his little girl in December, she’s like a white & yellow leopard gecko. She was still pretty small when we got her, so we assumed very young. Recently we noticed her front foot/ankle joint swelling, almost like an abscess. She had just shed, so we...
