My new Leopard Gecko. First reptile
I got my first reptile today. I have been doing a lot of reading the last few week and going to a lot of different pet store looking at different pets. I had a hard time picking out what I wanted a Leopard Gecko or Bearded Dragon. Had choice but I went with the Leo since they require less space, a good starting reptile and I work most of the day so when I get home from work is in the evening so he/she would sleep will I was working. I have 3 kids but they are only at my house one a month. so I thought they would enjoy looking at it. they will not be playing with it yet.I do hope to own a Dragon someday since my kids would like it more I think since my boy would think the name is cool. But after I got his home up and I thought I had temps close. I have had a little problems with temps my warm side was around 90-93 and colder side around 70-73. So I bought some sand a insulater and put my reptile carpet on top hoping that help. Right now the warm side is 94 and cold side 77. I did buy a red warming light to put in the middle if I do need added temp.I went out to pick out the one I wanted. I am not sure what the morph is of this or what kind it is other then it is a leopard gecko. I think the person told me it was a albino but not sure there were 4 in the cage. There baby and a little bit bigger think still a baby but it was a little different in color. it is about 4-6 inches from head to end of tail.
ok here are some picture the first few it is on sand but then put in the carpet.
bummer looks like I have to post some more before I can post picture. I will post some up after I get to 20 post
thank you guys for all the good info.
