    She doesnt like the idea of killing an animal because it didnt come out right, which idk how she is going to breed other animals if she cant even toss an egg.
    They will, but I dont buy them. I feed mealworms exclusively, they are easy to breed and dont stink like crickets.

    I have not found a place to buy live mealworms at right now, any idea (well maybe the pet shop that was closed today when I went to evansville does) so I have 24 crickets and some freeze dried food, I tossed 3 in when I got home, I think maybe 1 is left I missed watching the baby eat though :(

    If you cant find any close, order online. There are tons of great places that ship them, they are one kind of food that ships well.
    I would check, if you have a chain pet store, they should have them. Also get some food for them, so you can gut load them (and crickets) and dont keep them in the refrigerator if your trying to breed them.
    Get a tupperware thing with some holes in it, some of the food, the worms, and leave them out at room temp and they will turn into beetles and do their thing, just make sure to throw some fresh veggies in with them occasionally for water.

    ok, sounds good, yea I bought cricket food and have a peice in the tank with the gecko and threw some in the cage for the crickets (just one of those little plastic cages) so they will be full of nutrients, oh yea, how do you dust crickets with the cal/vit supplement, I used to dust mice for my snake but these suckers are a little more delicate and I don't want them to die before they are eaten ( I would kill the mice after dusting or knock them out at the least so they wouldn't hurt my snake)

    I have them on meal worms exclusively because they refuse crickets. Seems odd to me. They do love meal worms.Thank you Ellie:) that its my sprinkles:)seems as a breeder she would want the best of the species out there and they are not creatures if they don't develop if they were about to hatch that would be different but each to their own my mom is that way over her birds and their eggs.How are your guys and handling do they enjoy it? I know they are supposed to tolerate it but my girls seem too look forward to handling even like their heads ported and come to me

    I just got mine today and it seems ok with it, I took it to my friends before bringing it home so she could handle it first (she has a gecko girl, her's is about 10 years old and LOVES to be handled hehe) mine was find with 4 strangers handling it (my friend, her hubby, my hubby, and me hehe) and she even pooped in the container when we put her back in so had to get her back out to clean it before going home.

    my friend is really what got me into the gecko, well she is my hubby's friend more, he has known her since like 6th grade, her and her hubby, I have known her for about a year but still :D she has a bearded dragon that she has to had feed crickets to because its so lazy and a corn snake for her other reptiles. I think I am lucky to have someone close that I can count on if I need help with my gecko :D

    oh yea and I posted in the reptile section if you wanna see my gecko, I am just about to add a few more photos since it was out walking around when I went back in to check on it (I have a 100 watt heat lamp and the underground heater, probably turn off the lamp in the day since the house is not near as cold) I need to get 1 more hide for the shed hide, totally spaced I needed another one >.< but the little bugger seems to have eaten all 3 crickets so that makes me happy. I would love to figure out what morph it is, but its pretty young.

    For dusting the bugs, put some vitamin powder in a zip lock bad, and toss them in and shake. Then put them in the tank. When I had the crickets I would put one in at a time and make sure it was eaten before adding another. But I am weird like that lol

    @PM yea, youd think but who knows lol. The Red Stripe, because she is oranger (according to the geck people) is a lot more high strung and wants to book it, but after a few minutes she calms down some, but I am still trying to tame her a little more. She is very wild.
    The SSE, due to him being more albino and being an Enigma makes him so mellow. He is very chill, and is like a lap gecko and is happy just sitting in your hand. I like handling him way more than the female.
    It also is like any animal, the more they are handled the more they calm down. So yours are probably used to it more than my female. Mine came from a breeder who had so many geckos, so not enough time to handle all.

    I could post a picture on my gecko site and they could help id it.

    that would rock, I was looking at a gecko forum but could not figure out what morph mine is, and its so young I just donno if the age matters, I know they change a lot as they grow

    It looks so much like my friends gravid female, but I cant remember what his is lol

    They do change a lot with age, but the general markers will be the same for people who know what to look for on a morph

    Steve is super "loving" she really wants to be handled and was the first to become tame. Next was Sprinkles she was skiddish but i just made time for her to handle but she would run from me at first but now she will climb into my hand monster truck steve's sister she is friendly but she doesn't really enjoy handling as much as the other 2. when i take them out though they chirp if i take them too far from their tank even if i have them in my hands against me. not sure what that is about though.

    yay ellie! i am going to find your thread :)
