Start off your relationship with your new pet in the right way. Then you’ll establish a lasting bond that leads to many hours of enjoyment together.
Although it’s very hard to be patient, wait two weeks after you bring your leopard gecko home before you try to handle him. Put yourself in his place. He’s in a new environment with different sights, sounds, smells, and noises. It may take him a few days before he’s willing to eat food again.
