I rescued this little lady ^^ - March 25th 2009, 01:41 PM





Basically, I rescued her from a negligent owner. She's a leopard gecko, beautiful wee thing, about the same age as my snake.
Her tank was encrusted in filth and dead insects, she didn't have any calcium supplement (which captive leopard geckos need) or water and hadn't been fed in over a month. I'm glad to say though, she's doing quite well now that I've rescued her. I mean, okay, she's still stick thin, her limbs should NOT be that skinny, plus she still occasionally uses my thumb as a chew toy, but she can't quite draw blood, so its okay.
I'm just glad..not only did I get a new cute wee reptile, but I also did a good deed, and rescued the poor thing from abhorrent conditions. Gah, some people just shouldn't be allowed animals.

What's her name? Dumb question alert: Would her and Astra have a fight or play nice? xD

She's a cutie!



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.

Fight.
And Astra would own her. Thats why they're both in separate tanks and out of view of each other, lol.
She's called Zilly ^^ as in Godzilla....I always wanted to call a pet lizard godzilla, but then I wanted something cute. ^^

You need to teach them to play nice. I like how Godzilla would be PWNED by a snake. This is the worst movie ever.

Re: I rescued this little lady ^^ - March 25th 2009, 02:21 PM

I'm still in the process of persuading her to not think I'm trying to eat her, hell, my fingers are covered in little scratches where she's bit me since if she does bite me, I can't let go, since then she'd know all she needs to do is bite me and I'll go away.
Also, its since Astra is strong and well fed, plus she can go from looking at something to constricting it in about 1 second flat.
I won't stress either of them out like that though, hehe.
They're my babies ^_^

Well, I mentioned to my friend that I liked leopard geckos, and then she mentioned she knew someone who'd be willing to give one away, if he remembered it even existed. So eventually, he just gave me it, since he was "bored of it."

They're big scary and aggressive though =(, I mean, Zilly will probably grow to about 20cm long at the very most, and Astra's scared of more or less everyone who isn't me, she's precious ^^

Aww, that makes me smile. So many animals are being abandoned (because of the crisis now, especially) that it's really.. a good thing to hear about people doing the rescuing.

I wanted a pet gecko when I was little, but my mom said no way

Thats because your dogs scary >.>

And hehe, thanks people =) The only thing you have to keep in mind with leopard geckos is you need to be able to handle feeding it live insects and keeping tub-fuls of them. ^^; I've got half a tub of locusts as well as a tubful of mealworms and a wee tub of waxworms for a treat.
It makes my snakes diet of mice seem almost pleasant, eh? Also, I've decided I hate crickets, way too fast >.>

Neither of them are venomous, I'd be way too nervous keeping a pet that was actually dangerous to me, so even rear-fanged venomous snakes and really big lizards or contricters are out.
