    Good news...after repeated trials, he has finally eaten. I used the mixture of LGD, water, and a very very small speck of peach baby food. I noticed more movement during the night and one spot in the enclosure that he has chose to sleep for 4 straight nights now. Maybe it was just a new home adjustment...hopefully the eating continues....Also one more thing, I tried holding him recently and now all of a sudden he's making the notorious leachie noise. Is this a sign of anger or just normal?

    Which leachie noise is it? Is it a short whistle, a whirring, almost like trying to start a car that's already on, or a sharp, stacatto bark?

    Please excuse spelling, Nick is the drunk.

    That's a leachies way of saying, "I'm getting nervous," or, "I don't like what you're doing right now." Respect it, and look at what you're doing to cause the whistle. A gently held, calmly touched leachie won't normally make that noise. Are you holding it too tight? Moving too fast? Did the dog just jump up to look at it? Think about what you're doing at that moment, and modify your behavior.

    I've kept all the Rhacodactylus except trachys. I've raised all of them (from hatchlings to adults) and leachianus are hardier than ciliatus in my opinion- at least the Nuu Ami locale. As long as you are familiar with their general care, I can't see how you could "mess" one(a leachianus) up...

    In tubs and correct humidity they grow very well. Personally I just got a Yate on Friday ... Fed it Saturday night and it ate that night. Humidity in my personal opinion is a huge factor in a leachie eating.
