          That means his tail area markings has an arrow/stinger type shape, right? Sorry for jumping in, I just try to learn anything animal related whenever I can. Lol

      He is so adorable. This is a fat tailed gecko, right? I know a little about them and their care, but not a lot about their markings. Besides that they haven’t been bred for markings as much or as long as leopard geckos. I don’t think they have as many morphs, possibly a few different ones. Is this a type of markings they usually produce, or a different morph?

        Yes, he’s a fat tailed. Yea, he has pretty normal markings. We liked him because of the personality. He likes to get pets and will archer he’s back for them. Very friendly the only pain is he really only likes crickets and silkworms. I’ve tried so many other feeders and he doesn’t like them.

          Cool. I get that though. We have a Leo and he’s just a high yellow, we chose him from a bunch of albinos, etc but he was just so interested in us and being handled, we chose him. Our favorites always seem to be the most picky lol. Can you maybe trick him with wax worms? I’m sure he’d know the difference but sometimes if you hold off food for a little extra time, they’ll eat whatever you give them. And end up being less picky. He’s so cute though. Almost got one instead of Leo but couldn’t find one in person where I am.

          Are fat-tailed geckos harder to come by than Leos? It sounds like they have to be shipped to you in many parts of the country. Is that true?

          I don’t know about other parts of the world, but I’m in Ohio and couldn’t find one in any of the pet shops near me. I could order one online just fine, but I really don’t like doing that. I’ve done it once with an anole and house gecko for mates for my current ones, the anole came dead. So I never order pets online now.

          Pro tips: it will come any time between now and a week. Keep checking the email attached to this account.

          Coupon allows you to get 12 orders, use as often as you’d like until, all 12 orders are used. Coupon last one year, I believe. Also, the coupon will get you 500 insects, BUT if you spend $2 more in cash, you can get 1000 insects. That’s what I do. Best deal that way. Hope this helps.

          That’s a very useful tip for the difficult times ahead.

          Well, it WAS a tip. Lol. Details have changed, so… Coupon is good for $23, instead of $25 like it used to be. And It used to be 500 superworms for $25, now it’s 500 for $28. So if you want those with Coupon, use code and pay $4.

          BSFL are 500 for $21 (best deal here is getting 1000 and pay the extra $3, that’s what I do because it lasts long enough for me). Crickets are 500 for $23 or 1000 for $25, best deal with these is getting the 1000 and paying $2. I don’t get them often though because they tend to die on me now for some reason and I dont mess with roaches either so I don’t know what their deals would be. Hope this helps anyone.
