    Niki,
    I had to go back and find the thread with the picture of your lizard. I thought yours was bigger then that for some reason. That was the size they were at the show for $30.00.

    I tried feeding them yesterday. 2 of the 3 ate. I'll feed them again tomorrow and if the 1 lizard does not eat anything, I'll pick up some crickets and try that.

    I kept 1 male and 15 females. I rotated 5 of my females in the 40 gallon tank so they bred 1 year and were off 2.
    Here's a link to my page I made about Leopard Geckos, I have some pictures of the eggs and my incubator. I'll get better pictures in about 2 years since the one on my website are scanned negatives.

    Here's a picture from years ago of a female that I had.

    Niki,
    It's a Leopard Gecko in the picture.

    I feed them mealworms. I raise my own. I try to only feed mealworms which have recently shed, which look white. Their shell has not hardened yet, easier to digest.

    The Chameleons all looked healthy. At shows you can usually get lizards, snakes, frogs, tarantulas, scorpions, etc, etc, a little under half of what everyday pet stores sell them for. Leopard Geckos usually sell for $30-$45.00 each in pet stores. I got the 3 for $65.00, after working on a discount price, which is more then what they cost 7 years ago. Sometimes you could get them at $18.00 each and at the end of a show for $15.00. The cheapest I found the Leopard Geckos for was $25.00 each at the show this time.
    One show I was at years ago a vender was selling Jackson Chameleons 5 and 6" long for $20.00 toward the end of the show. It was hard not to leave with any.
    Someday I will have a true chameleon!

    Niki,
    You confused me...there is a gecko called a Fat-Tailed Gecko.
    Leopard Geckos store fat in their tails. I'm guessing the picture is before the breeding season when I fatten up the females for the egg laying process. I would feed them 1 pinky and waxworms twice a week a few weeks before they started to breed to get them in condition.
