Smile dexter finally got a new friend!...

sorry it's not a chi though LOL nor a cute rat like a lot of people here have...

but first here is dexter (used with a fish eye lens) i know he looks weird...maybe it was the angle? LOL! u can really see his balding head though lol

this is what we got at the pet expo!

can anyone guess what he is?

dexter approves of him though (not so much my mom...she HATES him)

how can anyone hate his adorable face!?


give up?
he's an albino leopard gecko
so yes we did go to the pet expo today...looking for stuff for dexter and my bf's cat hercules (it's herc's bday today, 16 yrs now)
instead we ended up buying 2 playballs for hercules and this baby gecko whom we have called Spenny (if anyone watches the canadian show "kenny vs spenny" then they would know why) hehe

the only thing im against is...him eating LIVE bugs! eeeeek! i hate bugs...but his cheeks are so darn cute! now off to the gecko forum to learn how to spoil him like i do to dexter hehehe

I had a pair of leopard geckos when I had my Chameleon.
I loved them, but the live feedings never get easy !

lol it's weird cuz i wasnt into slimy reptiles before except my red ear slider turtles whom i loved to watch swim around when they were babies but when i saw this little guy in the container OMG it was like I HAVE TO HAVE IT! it because i didnt know the gender lol! my bf actually wanted him first but i butted in and took him! hehehe my mom hates things that looks like snakes but...maybe just maybe she can get used to him since he wont be walking around out of the cage. he doesn't bite at all either just licks...kinda like a dog LOL we got him for a steal though! $30 ! plus the cage and lid,bulb,crickets,sand we got at petsmart for $122. ah! i'm still waiting to be approved in their forum though i need help on setting his tank up... when there's 3 thermometers in the kit...im lost in translation haha. get one!!!! so cool not as cool as chis though hehehe

Oh he's lovely! I used to have about 30 leopard geckos, along with 8 ball pythons, 3 spotted pythons, 6 bearded dragons, 1 Australian water python, 10 corn snakes, 2 basilisks, 3 anoles, 10 RES turtles, 1 burmese python, 3 milk snakes, 3 tarantulas, 2 scorpions, 1 marble gecko, 1 5 lined skink, aligator lizards, rubber boas, BCIs and more that I can't remember now, lol. Live feedings get better, honestly. You can also give them mealworms now and then (not too often, they are fatty), king worms (as above) and (don't hate me) live pinky mice. They are all fatty, and the pinkies should only be fed if they are breeding. Do you have calcium powder for him? You will need to dust the crickets as well as keep a bottle cap of powder in his tank (they will lap it as needed). They need an arid home, but be sure to keep a humid hide in there (a small container, eg. sour cream, with reptile moss & an opening in the side, kept damp, but not wet). They eat their shed, so don't panic when you see that! Watch the sand, as if it is ingested it can cause impaction (I used reptile carpet for all my herps, you can also use newspaper or plain brown packing paper). They only need a heat source, no UVB bulbs required. They are wonderful pets! They also love company, so you may want to eventually find another to join him (although be sure to quarentine the newbie for 30 days first, to avoid cross contamination). $30 is a great price. We pay about $20 per gecko here (nearly any morph). They like to be held, they are very socialable! Watch how you handle them though, the tails come clean off if grabbed (deffense mechanism). Also a thicker, fatter tail is better than a skinny tail (he currently has a lovely thick tail), the fats stored there help them get through tough times and usually mean a healthy gecko. Enjoy!! He's a beauty!

i didnt realize u answered the questions here! LOL. geez i must be slow. i will have to get the calcium powder for him i guess the only question you can answer is the one about the sand. the guy from petsmart said the calcium sand was good for them...but the forum people said it causes blockage. geez! also im a little confused on the moist moss thing o.o yes ive read about the thick tails and wow i cant believe they can hurt their tails so sad. i've read that 2 male geckos dont get along with each other as well and become territorial but 1 male and 1 female is fine o.o; im not planning on getting anymore...my mom is furious enough! LOL. oh and now i wont need the bulb i bought -_-; sigh

catalat: that's my fav pic too! my cutie dexter doesnt even know it's alive though since he dont move much in his tank LOL
