Someone’s getting ready for a shed! What a pale baby!

I came home from the hospital last night and apart from being quite sore, I’m doing well :3 I’m gonna take it really easy for a few days and just lounge around watching Netflix.

I noticed that people tend to have a lot of questions about appendicitis and the procedure so if you’re wondering about anything, I’m happy to respond!

Hi! I'm getting my first ever reptile - a baby leopard gecko sometime next week and I'm wondering about unboxing. I've read a lot and watched a couple of videos on it and I'm wondering what other people's experiences with this are. Should I leave it in the box until it's room temp? Should I not feed or handle it until after 4 days? Any general advice on this would be great :3

Congrats on the new leo! Sorry if I’m too late. I fed and handled mine the day I got them but I did it at their pace, I didn’t just reach in and grab them. For the unboxing, I’ve never had one shipped but maybe one of my followers has some tips? 

Well I just saw pictures of him. Sorry I didn’t answer in time. He’s adorable!

That’s fine, thanks for replying anyway!

There was a slight mishap as I got him out of the box - I wanted to move him to a bigger one while he warmed up - and he freaked out and I dropped him on the bed (resulting in a small chirp). He was a little apprehensive about me after that but then I hand-fed him a waxworm and now he’s happy to crawl right up into my hand :3

Also, I figured the advice about not feeding them for 4 days only applied to adults since babies need food much more often and it’s been perfectly fine!

I asked if I could have it but they said it just looked really bad. Also I was terribly high on morphine so they might not have taken me very seriously

Just woke up from anaesthesia after having my appendix removed. I’m a lucky girl!

At least now I’ll never have to worry about it ever again

I’ve got some crud going on so I’m not likely to do any art for a little while.

HOWEVER - Donut is doing really well and his tail’s gotten noticeably fatter already and I love him to bits!

I’m so glad I did so much research on leopard geckos before getting one, and I hope other people who’re getting a new pet will do the same.

Every time we’ve had a little problem, it’s been such an easy fix because I read so many different caresheets and articles and forum posts and watched so many videos on handling and feeding and setting up a tank and everything.

I feel really confident that he’s always gonna be healthy and happy

Donut has eaten a whole locust and lots of mealworms and is feeling very content and brave

So my Miis are having babies and…

They’re terrifying

First work for school, had to do something that “showcased my creativity” and I wanted to do something showing what is vs. what could be. I dunno about this but eeeh, first assignment, who cares.

Here’s our new baby - Donut! He’s very curious and lifts himself up a lot so he appears to be in good health. He was a little cold when he arrived so he spent some time warming up on my foot. It looks like his markings are gonna be really nice; I’m loving the white and black band around his head.

We don’t actually know his gender - he’s only about 3 months old and we won’t be able to tell properly until he’s around 1 year, but we’re sticking with calling him a male for now.
