  • I'm a little worried about my leopard geckos.

    My leopard geckos are verry small. I don't know what to do. People say that Leo's grow verry fast especially males. I've gotten Forest (the normal) from Petsmart and he is 2 years old he will be 3 in Novemberish. I got Eclipse (the bell albino) from Petco and he is 1 year old and will be 2 in Septemberish. The last one I got two days ago from the local pet stor Animal Arc. Sunfire (the super hypo tangerine carrot tail baldy) I don't know how old she is but she is the normal size of a leopard gecko. I have her on here for comparison. What can I do to get them growing? Thanks in advance!

    Sorry about the female she got pregnant before I got her and won't stay still

    They look nice and healthy. Nice fat tails. I would say you're doing just fine. Not all geckos grow at the same rate.

      yeah I agree with the comment above, they look really healthy and not all geckos are fast growers, my leo (Hermes) is a little fatty but I have seen other geckos of the same age as her (2 and a half years) that are smaller but are given practically the same care.

      I think it all depends on the gecko.

        I agree with this, I have seen a great variety of different sizes and growth rates in leopard geckos. Very pretty geckos nonetheless.

          Agree with the above. Body condition-wise, they all look healthy. Leos will grow at different rates depending on their genetics, how they're housed, how much/often they're fed and what they're fed, etc.

          A good indicator of a leo's health/growth is to weigh them semi-regularly. As long as they're eating well, are in good physical condition, are active and alert, and are gaining weight (regardless of rate), they should be just fine.
