Cody's Leopard Gecko Build

I know, I know.

"Cody, what happened to the Crestie Setup?"

I'll tell you. I have been visiting my local PetCo (very good with keeping herps) a lot recently, always checking out the Leos, Ball Pythons, Cresties, etc. Everytime I saw the Cresties, they never moved from the spot they were in. Of course, it was a different spot everytime, but no movement. That really bored me. I was also tired of waiting to make an auto-mister for the viv, so instead of spending $50 on that, I decided to go another route. I did all my research on Leos, tore down my Crestie setup, and voila.

Specs:
-20 gallon long tank
-3 hides (hot, cool, humid)
-Paper Towel Substrate (for now)
-Misc Accesories
-Hot side: 92F
-Cool Side: 75F
-Food: Mealworms

I plan on switching over to slate for a substrate once she/he matures. I also might make a small second level. I want to add a few more things to the viv, but I don't want to stress him/her out more. So those will have to wait.

I purchased a pretty young juvi. He is around 5" at most (I think), and from what I can tell is a Jungle morph. He was actually in the middle of a shed when I arrived, so I waited untill he was done. Anyways, enough talk.

FTS:

Cool side:

Middle:

Hot side:

The Leo (she/he has been sleeping almost all day, and I don't blame him):


Let me know.

Awesome Cody! He's a looker. Now, you know what my next question is going to be:
What are you going to name him?? "Crestie" just isn't original enough. What version of P. Diddy are you going to go with??

PS. LOVE the set up!!

Thanks guys.

He/she was out exploring last night and this morning. I also offered a Mealworm last night, which thankfully he/she ate. I will offer way more tonight, and dust them in calcium.

Kymmie, I don't really know if I will name him/her. Maybe later down the road, but I am terrible with creating names. But he/she will be around for 15 more years.
