    Default Who wants to see some GIANT GECKOS!?!?

    Hi all! I know I haven't been on in a while. I've become super busy at work and at home. But I just wanted to post an update on some of our geckos. Mainly the huge ones.
    Well, I had one for the longest time and she was growing well. When she started to put on some adult sizing/weight I was thinking about getting another. Well, long story short.... We fell absolutely in love with these giants and now have 6 with 2 more on the way.
    So without further ado, here are all the Leachianus that are here at Ouroboros Exotics.

    Cthulhu is the sweetest Leachie I've ever known. She just loves to hug your hand. If I ever decide to stop breeding, she will not be going anywhere. I think she's the favorite in my collection.

    So how big of a tank does a grown leachie need? I am fascinated by them, but doubt I'll ever own. (But never say never, right?? )

    Lol, so nice to see your growing collection! Jabberwock's yellow is pretty awesome, where did you get him from? And Cthulhu is just a wrinkly ball of cuteness, so adorable!

    Leachies are a bit different than other New Calendonian species. They prefer a little bit tighter quarters. You'd think that with the larger size that they'd need a very large enclosure. It's actually quite the opposite. If there's one thing I've learned from keeping leachies this last year and a half is that they will stress and not eat if there's too much space. I keep my adult leachies in the same size tubs that I keep my adult/breeding gargoyles in. As long as the leachie has cork bark and large enough branches to feel their weight is secure on, they'll thrive in a bit smaller of an enclosure than you'd think.

    Jabberwock was a steal semi-locally. I found him on the classifieds pages on Facebook. He didn't want to ship and so we both ended up driving about 2 hours or so to meet so that we could purchase him. He's definitely one of my prettiest with all that pattern. He's for sure going to be a killer male once he gets up to breeding weight.
    Cthulhu is a total sweetie! I admit that I was nervous about having an adult leachie in my care. They have such a rotten reputation. They're not as nasty as you'd think. All of my adults are big sweeties and would rather hug you than take a bite out of you. I am however getting that big nu ana x pine isle girl and apparently she's nasty! LOL
    I guess there's always gotta be one meanie.

    Thanks! I love them all! Each is so unique with color and pattern variations. Truly the coolest species I've ever worked with.
    Also! The big unnamed boy is going to be Zuul! We've put a deposit down on him and he should be ready to ship out in about 2 weeks! So excited!

    That's awesome! How do you come up with your names?

    After looking at your pictures the hundredth time, I come to favorite Balrog too. Lmfao. One question- do leachies drop their tails?
