    I have a year old female that I've had since she was 2 weeks and she's still not used to me. Then I have a 4 month old juvie that I got at 2 months and he's already used to me. Some of them will just never come around .

        Most of mine are used to me after a few months or so. I still have some that I have had over 6 months that are still a bit spooky for the first few minutes they are out of their enclosures.
        I do have 1 though (Tarzan) that comes to the front of the cage and watches me everytime I come into the gecko room. He just loves to come out and visit.

            I think it just has a lot to do with individual personality and how much of the "wild" is left in the breeding line- kinda like with cats. Some are aloof and nasty, some very social with people, loving the attention. I think some of our little ones will always be a little skiddish, but it doesn't hurt to keep trying- just don't take it personally.

              I try to make it a point to (gently) handle my 4.5 month old for a little while each day... it seems he gets less skittish as time goes on, but It's still an effort to get him out of his viv :?

                From what I've heard, around 2-4 months at least, I think.
