Desert Rose: my leopard gecko

This is Desert Rose my Leopard Gecko. She's about 9 and a half inches in length which I hear is big. She's fully grown (I hope) and is traversing my bed in these photos. I try to get her out every so often just to let her stretch her little legs.






I love her <3

I've never bred lizards o.o I think my mom would kill me if I ever tried XD but yeah I agree they are some of the best pets <3 She isn't the kind who likes to be held a lot as she likes to wander so I often just let her out on the bed and maybe I put her on the leash out in the backyard. (She's too fast for me not to have the leash on her) Though when she's outside she just pretty much basks

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Thanks she just got a twenty gallon tank last week and I set it up, it doesn't look that great because I have to clean it right now, which is tomorrow's chore, but she has so much more room now. I got it for free too ^^

she'll be ok,they just need time to settle in,
as long as you have the moist hides for her,she won't need much more.

YA the little log is a hiding spot for her, and I'm spritzing it twice a day with luke warm water, she shed again today o.O
it doesn't say in my leopard gecko book, but I assume it is true that they shed even when they aren't growing right?

how old is she,whaen they are young they shed quite often,
keeping a close eye on the toes and eye lids,makes it easy to detect tightened skin
quickly.
