Hi All! It's nice to read this comments, do I'm going to leave my own. Yesterday I found a common snapping turtle in front of my house where I park my car. My passenger almost stepped on it when getting out of the car but I noticed it because of the some with which it ran to get out of the way! I don't know how it got so far from the nearest stream but I decided to keep her (the lady at the pet store said most likely female based on vent location). We currently have 'Mojo' in a ten gallon tank but know she will grow quickly. Her shell is roughly 2 inches long and we're guessing 1-2 months old. We are feeding her meal worms, pellets, and minnows. She has a Huge appetite (and think this might be why she was so far from her habitat--perhaps there wasn't enough food? Or she got washed out by rain). I have two kids, and based on our research, it's important to handle them a lot early on to condition them to people. We would love to avoid getting bit by her and we don't want her to get too far either! We still have a lot to learn, so any tips would be appreciated.

My baby Leopard gecko name is Breannan he let's me handle him and he's very sweet but recently I've notice he's stopped eating I've tried feeding him baby fruit food but now he won't eat it any more. Also I've notice he's developed these indentions on the sides of his head between the top of his head and his ear, I don't know what they are or if he's sick and that's a sign. Help?

    If its a Leopard Gecko, fruit isn't the best thing to give it. They are specifically insectivores. I don't exactly know about the head symptoms

Pink toe tarantulas are great for beginners. They have a mild temperament and aren't too picky. They prefer to be up high so your terrarium should be taller than it is wide. I just use a regular glass terrarium with a slide on lid. Her light weighs down the lid so it won't come off but she's never even tried to get out. Be careful when you're feeding it, they jump!

HELP! please could someone please help or advise me, my daughter came home with a gecko roughly 3 wks ago. None of us know nothing about raising a gecko so I bought a book straight away to tell me how 2 look after a gecko in captivity best way possible. Since the day we have had him he has had quite a thin tail and a very pale colour of yellow and black. He doesn't open his eyes that wide either. We have seen him eat crickets now and again but not for the last few days. He lives in a good sized tank the pet shop told me would be great for him and I have a lamp for the tank but I honestly don't think its warm enough for him. Can someone please if you can tell me anything I can do to help get him healthy as we are all really attached to him and at the moment I am fearing the worst is going to happen. PLEASE HELP. julieanne x

    Hello there,

    First of all, I have educated myself a lot regarding Leopard geckos.
    It is vital for a Leopard gecko to have an under tank heat mat as they are nocturnal and they can only properly digest their food if they absorb heat from their bellies.
    They do not require uvb lights and some lamps can be so strong that they can stress this nocturnal gecko.
    I recommend Habistat heat mats as they are safe and reliable.
    Some cheap version of heat mats have known to have burned herps but this brand is very trusted worldwide.
    Also to be on the safe side, a thermostat should be connected to it and that will keep the required temperature at a constant level.
    Another vital thing is to provide the gecko with a humid hide at all times and never allow it to dry.
    A lack of humid hide can lead to shedding problems.

    Please note this care advise is specific for Leopard geckos only.
    I didn't educate myself on other types of geckos as I only keep Leopard geckos myself.
    I have also noticed very poor advice from certain websites regarding this particular lizard.
    Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you need more help.

    Regards, Veronica

    Hi, your gonna need to feed it twice a day, it needs a 50-60 watt lightbulb, and it needs a lot of atttention. If its a baby it eats crickets and mealworms.
  • Shrimpboy - 2016-09-28
    Put the gecko in a small container with 3 crew keys for a few days and check every day if the gecko ate any. I wish you the best of luck

    You should give her/him calcium.this will help the gecko grow stronger. Feed the gecko about 4 mealworms/crickets.(I recommend mealworms) If you think the lamp is not warm enough then get 100 wat lamp with a night light too. You could buy a heating pad too. Leopard geckos are nocturne so they will always need a night light( red or purple UV lights work) You can go to any local pet store and get these items each for about 5-10 dollars. Hope I helped you!
