    What's the life expectancy for them? Is it shorter because they're so big longer because they don't meet any predators!

    Keeper of the hens

    What a beauty NN! I do love their size! I want another GAL but don't think I could manage them very well, and Chie is in the tank I'd want to put one in haha. Here is Chie, our leopard gecko, btw...she's amazing :)

    (Ignore my grubby nails I'd been sifting through substrate!!)

    Oh she is a real little beauty, look at her sweet little hands and that beautiful calm face xx That substrate does get your hands messed up. I usually just use a bulb compost for Ben it hasn't got the chemical in it that most garden composts has and the substrate is quite pricey. It doesn't seem to hurt him anyhow.

    Red, I just love your gecko..she's darling..I love lizards, but I hate snakes..I guess it must be the lack of legs that I can't handle.:face-smile:

    Start with a slow worm, NN - they're legless lizards I believe. You'll be up to a python in no time!

    I just thought they'd be a good way of working your way up to snakes. I forget that most snakes your way will kill you; we only have one poisonous snake but they are rare and shy so more likely to run (?) away! Do you have slow worms there, Lynn?

    CC, not that I'm aware of, CC. I only know that where we live in Western Washington state, we have NO poisonous snakes..that's why I'd live nowhere else but here. We do have Rattle Snakes in Eastern Washington..but I don't go there. :face-smile:

    No slow worms in this country that I know of (just googled them myself as I had never heard of them). Pretty cute! I grew up around rattle snakes (in California). Lynn's right not much poisonous in our region. The only kind of snake I ever see is Garter Snakes.
