    Default SIZE Comparison Pics - Ok so you have a big leachie, big deal, does it LOOK big?!?

    Alright people, lets see those big leachies with size comparison pics. This is my 14th attempt to get people to post pics of large leachies with size comparisons. Hopefully the 14th time is the charm??? Thanks to Earfarmer, Alfredo (Maguyon) and others who have responded to my previous requests!

    Here is what I currently feel is the best size comparison pictures of one of the largest leachianus. Thanks to Adam Lieberman for this one.

    Now for some of my examples...
    Here are more SIZE COMPARISON pics of my Nuu Ana male. He was about 10.5 inches long at the time of these pics. This is what I've been saying we need more of in the hobby. Attractive pics where you can actually tell how big the animal is. I use various objects for size comparison to give the viewer multiple senses of how big the animal is. Enjoy!

    Very nice Andrew!

    I still don't want them though since they can be cage aggressive. My little daughter is use to opening up cages and sticking her lil hand in with no fear! I want to keep it that way for awhile here.

    I am much the same way, even for my personal liking. Something that large with the predisposition to bite or nip is just not cool...even though I know that they aren't all like that.

    Some day I might take the leap and get one but probably not in the forseeable future.

    Bite or nip? I only get growls and huffs from my pair until I pet them or hold up the cricket/pinky they want.

    You never specified WHAT to compare our Leachie's to! Droma's Island X girl Vena as compared to a Twinkie! Shes only 29 months though so shes still growing. Where she weighed 130 grams at 28 months, Droma weighed only 75 at the same age so I expect her to top off much larger than him.



    Droma is asleep in his tube so I can't compare him to anything at the moment.

    Mmmmmm. Twinkie.


    No Leachies were harmed in the process of this photo shoot, but the Twinkie was thoroughly enjoyed afterwords by the photographer.

    Haha awesome! Thanks that was pretty great

    Remember you can use anything for size comparisons to make big geckos look big. Play around with the angle of the photograph and the background until you get something cool! Even a 10 inch leachie can look huge! Try putting leachies on arms, keyboards, next to coke cans, coins, etc! The smaller the arm the bigger the leachie will look! Also try to make sure their feet are completely spread out so they look as big as possible!

    Thanks! I find most leachies are just "home" aggressive, i.e. cork bark tubes, hide boxes, etc. Their tree hollows are their homes in the wild, and they need to defend them as best they can. Once they're out though they're super nice.

    This male is actually the nicest gecko ever, he's only ever opened his mouth to lick something lol, and the worst he's done to me is poop

    You should get a baby Leachie so it can grow up with your daughter!
