New Leopard Gecko climbing glass

Hello,

We just got our first reptile pet - a leopard gecko that the shop said was about a month old. He/she has spent most of her time climbing the glass or otherwise trying to get out of her terrarium. She has a warm side, cool side and hides, including a moist hide. The shop had her in a terrarium with a sand mat, so we got the same one for her new home. She ate 3 mealworms last night. Her color is much duller this morning. I’ve included before and after shots. I’m worried if I’m doing something wrong or if she’s very unhappy/uncomfortable. Stressin’ out! Advice much appreciated.

Ok, update, he/she is definitely shedding, but still wandering around the cage & hasn’t stepped a foot into the moist hide.

They don't necessarily go into the moist hide when they shed Checking out a new environment is very normal. Also normal is climbing up the sides. If you could put a leopard gecko into a cage a kilometer wide, they would walk to the edge and try to get out! Everything sounds OK

Thank you! Ziggy disappeared into the shed for a couple of hours and came out completely clean, shed skin completely gone & eaten. I didn’t realized it happened so fast!
