It’s been a while I haven’t done an update on my little scally friends. The family expended ever since I wrote my first post regarding geckos. I now have 4 of them! 🙂
I have kept a little journal ever since January to track their progress.
My Crested Geckos
Let’s start with Jazz, my very first reptile I have ever owned. She was born on June 10, 2018. She’s a flame. We learned a month or so ago that she was a girl. Up until recently, She has been asking to come out of her enclosure and coming on her own in our hands. Recently, out of nowhere, she started to be a bit skittish and wanting to run away. She’s been on and off lately. Maybe her new friend, which is right beside her, is stressing her out? I am not sure, but I am planning to try to make a separation between the two to prevent them to see each other… Hopefully, that will help.
She’s been doing well overall though. On January 2nd, she weighed 16 grams and now she’s 21 grams. She gained 5 grams since then.
Now to our newest and last addition for a little while. Here’s Bordeaux. He’s a red duotone dalmatian male crested gecko. He’s beautiful! Not that Jazz isn’t, but it’s amazing the difference in color when he’s calm. He’s almost beige and when fired up bright red! He was born on July 3rd, 2018. He’s a month younger than Jazz, but already he’s as big as her. We got him late January, so about a month now. He was hiding a lot the first 2 weeks and he’s still shy, but we are starting to see him coming near the doors. He has been eating his Pangea the first day we got him. He’s doing well. When I weighed him January 23rd, he was 18 grams and this week he’s 20 grams. Not bad. He’s still adjusting, but I am sure I will see changes in his behavior soon and maybe he’ll come out on his own as well soon!
My Leopard Geckos
Pixel is our first leopard gecko I’ve owned. He was born on June 15, 2018. He’s a Tangerine ph Tremper. It’s been interesting seeing him change! In the beginning, he had dots on his head and tail only, now it’s almost all over and got was darker! He’s a beautiful gecko too! He loves to cuddle in my neck to keep warm. He’s a very chill gecko. Pixel is a big boy compared to his neighbor. He may have some giant in him. It’s cute watching him hunt his food. He mostly spends his time in his warm hide or in his humid hide, but if it’s quiet and dark in the house, you sometimes find him climb on his little house. On January 2nd, Pixel was weighing 67 grams and today he’s 80 grams. He’s a huge boy for only 8 months!
Last but not least, Ginger! She’s a Sunglow Emerine. She’s quite a character this one… She was born on June 22, 2018. Just a few days younger than Pixel. On January 2nd, she was weighing 41 grams and today 48 grams. You can see the difference between her and Pixel. It’s Amazing! She’s almost half the size. She’s a little difficult and shy girl. Not sure if she’s just spoiled or she has difficulty seeing them, but I practically have to put her food in front of her nose. she’s so gentle and delicate… she’s just going gently and sometimes misses it. Haha! She’s a funny one. She always stands up high on her legs, she almost looks like a little bulldog. She makes me smile every time when I see her halfway out of her hide perched high on her legs. She really looks like she’s guarding her little house. 🙂
That’s it for this time, if you like this type of post, please let me know and I will try to make one every month or quarterly.
