He's ansolutely gorgeous! there's a real change in him in the 3 sets of photos you've posted!

I definitely still plan to get one. Bought a few books and have been reading up on them on the internet as well. It seems that once all the gear is in place, and i know what I'm doing, it shouldn't be too difficult to look after which is nice, especially once I'm used to it.

Those are some really nice photos you've managed to get as well, especally since you said he was camera shy.

I also didn't know that they shed so often, I don't know why but i assumed it would have been less frequently, and have never came across anything so far that says how often it happens so its definitely good to know. I'm also glad that his latest sheds have went well. It would really worry me if some was left on his toes or something for example.

Keep us all updated on how he is doing. It's great to see him again. :)

Sand can't be used as a substrate as apparently the gecko can ingest this and become impacted.
i had leopard and fat-tailed geckos and they make a special sand thats edible.

just a note to say...........
beware of any sand,it can cause inpactation,not always
however there are many reptile keepers who will not touch the stuff.

Yes, the change is amazing - it's hard to believe he's the same lizard as the first photos.

I'm glad to hear your still planning on getting one Julie. They had some lovely ones for sale in Huntershill Pet Centre in Bishopbriggs last week, they also had a pair of breeding adults which I SO wanted! I'll pm you their contact details in case you want to get in touch with them when the time comes that you're in a position to get one.

Some people seem to use it, but I wouldn't take the risk - I've heard too many horror stories. I used a sheet of vinyl now that can be taken out and wiped clean.

that's a good idea,i bet it is easier than reptile carpet,
i guess i was lucky with mine because they pooped in one corner,
so i used folded kitchen towel,and just removed it when needed.
i kept the babies on kitchen towel as well,sooooooo much easier.:)
