The best feeling

Post by stubby_leopard on Tue Mar 06, 2012 8:23 am

My little man has just eaten his first thing since I got him, I think the one of the best feelings knowing they feel comfortable enough to get some food. He stills shys away in his coconut hide whenever I come in my room but Ill give him time Smile

Bless my little sonny, he's such a cutie.

Awesome!! Very Happy Sounds like he's got a pretty good appetite without the "settling-in-jitters". Wink Keep us updated!

It appears that I was lucky when I got Starbuck. She ate within two days after I got her and she's always been pretty chill. She was just freaking out a little bit the first night.

But it sounds like yours is settling in pretty well too! Very Happy

Younger geckos can be a little stubborn about eating at first, but I guess it depends on the gecko at the same time.
