      This is Ringo!! Ringo loves ALL feeder insects but crickets are his FAVORITE and are the only insects that make his tail wag back and forth like an excited puppy. He would be honored and very thankful to win this contest 🙏🏻 🙌

      That’s hilarious! How old is he and when did he start wagging his tail?

          Maybe you should breed him as a special tail-wagging morph!

      Lol, I wonder if this is a male leopard gecko thing then. I know they do the tail wag to distract predators (before they drop the tail) and also when fighting another male. But mine also does this when he’s eating a favorite food as well. I thought he was just weird or very excited. Haha. Wonder if ours are related?

          Oh pet shops are notorious for the wrong info! They have no training at all for the animals themselves. There are threads on here for how to tell or do a quick Google search. I usually go by a lump at the base of tail behind their privates (that slit under there) and pores. If they have both, you have a male. Males are also larger with usually larger heads. There’s also a way to tell with a light. But I’ve never done it.
