    That gecko has a fat tail! I like Rio, how big is he? How long have you had him?

    Rio is around 4ft now, shes still only 3. Rango the gecko, shes actually on a diet as of right now. She weighs in at 80-85g which is a lot for a gecko her age, however her size permits it. Shes what would be Ideal for breeding, which she will not be doing.

    Gee thanks, rango loves you too -__-. Shes not nasty, shes my baby and i love the darned little gecko. Shes beautiful. As for Rio, shes a very very sweet little girl. Shes a Grey banded King-snake, Dark Blair morph. She has never struck at me. Sol, my betta, was a gift from petsmart from my Stepfather attempting to replace Nero, my copper CT. Sols a great little guy(literally, hes still a juvi by default.) Compared to Elton, my other HMPK hes about half the size of an adult betta, still growing.

    I love the tail on Sol! Like a pretty fan. :) Rango's eyes are <3...are all gecko's eyes grey? Honest question cause I don't know. ^^; Rio looks sooooooo curious. Doesn't seem hard to get good pics of at all lol.

    ohh, nice question on eyes. The fallowing is on Leopard gecko eyes.

    To start, we have your basic normal eyes which are the granite ones you see on rango.
    Then theres albino eyes. There are 3 strains of albino, only way to tell the difference is by the eyes. between light pink, dark pink and pink grey. Not as easy as it sounds.
    Theres also the enigma gene, which puts orangein the eyes. Anything from a little orange wisps that you barley see to solid orange(looks like fire).
    Eclipse eyes, have solid black on them, covers partial or total.
    Marbled- self explained really
    Snake eyes- self explained.

    So yes, there are MANY types of leo eyes, all associated with the different morphs. My little SHTCT can only have normal though. Geckos can be squirmy, which is a pain for pics. I may go through 20-30 and post what you see.

    heres a younger pic, her eyes were wow in this one.

    same size in proportion really. Its a fat storage, as they get older it gets fatter.
