Hello I just joined, I thought joining a forum would be a great way to further my leopard gecko knowledge:) Currently I have a leopard gecko named Logan (after wolverine). So his backround story. He is 5 years old. I adopted him from Petco when he was 3, his previous owners were moving and couldn't bring him along so they dropped him off at the store. At the time it was my birthday and it was a complete impulse to get him. I feel horrible looking back as I was and still am mainly into small animals such as mice and hamsters so my reptile knowledge was extremely limited. At the beginning my care was not that good but I'm proud to say my care has immensely improved. I've had him for two years now20191017_190752.jpg but I'd say i'm still relatively new, as Logan is my only reptile . So any care tips would be greatly appreciated:)

Logan looks pretty cute. I love the little hammock and pillow he has, thats pretty neat. I don't know how much information you know already, but if you would like to fill out a form about his care, I can send it to you on here and you can fill it out, or you can tell us more about his living situation (setup, feeders, supplements, etc.), we would be glad to help out.

You can ignore the questions that ask whats wrong with your Leo unless he has been acting unusual. You don't have to answer the fecal or problem section.

Everything seems perfectly fine to me. Just watch the amount of direct sunlight he gets through the window (if he gets direct sun) and make sure it doesn't heat up the cage to uncomfortable temps. If you have any crazy, weird or just plain normal questions, don't be afraid to ask us :D
