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.

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

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?? :lol:

PS. LOVE the set up!!

Cody 02-17-2009 04:26 PM

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. :-)

15 years is the life span of these little guys? wow. i guess thats because theres no predators too, well... besides cats, dogs and little brothers.
