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.

Wow she is gorgeous! great colors and a nice fat healty tail thats always good to see! I miss my leopard gekcos so so so so so much! they were my fav pets ever so gentel and sweet reptiles tummys so soft! there not mean what so ever and when they bred they gave me some nice lil babys to look after and play with :) aw!!

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

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 ^^

that's great you got it for free :)
hope you'll show some more pictures. :)

Here's her new tank, it's spotless now though I'm not sure if she's happy about the change XD

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.

Andarial 02-26-2011 12:40 PM

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?

willow 02-26-2011 04:23 PM

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.
