Leopard Geckos as Pets

In this post, I am going to tell you what you need to get your leopard gecko and how to take care of it. They are great pets for beginners.

  • Taming

It’s pretty simple on how to tame your gecko. For the first couple days, show it your hand. After that, start picking it up. If it squirms, do the hand things for a couple more days.

  • Shopping
  1. A cage
  2. Food: mealworms, crickets, butter worms, etc.
  3. Heat lamp or heat mat
  4. Calcium powder and powder dish
  5. Water dish
  6. Food dish
  7. Hideout (It’s better to get 2. One where the heat is and one where there’s no heat.)
  8. Plant (Optional)
  9. Thermometer
  10. Reptile carpet, sand, woodchips, etc.
  • Handling

These geckos are delicate little creatures. You have to be very careful with them. To pick them up, slide your hand under their belly. Let it examine you and crawl around. Don’t take it out to long. Ten to fifteen minutes is the most you should take it out per day.  Always be careful of the tail because it stores all their fat and nutrition. Also, try not to scare, or it will drop its tail which is not good.

NEVER LIFT IT UP BY THE TAIL!

  • Vacation

What do you do with your leopard gecko if you’re on vacation? If you are gone for one to four days, feed it before you leave, and fill up its bowl of water. For five days and more, you need someone to take care of it. To be courteous, clean its cage beforehand. Give them the food, and make a checklist on what they need to do.

  4. After juvenile geckos shed, their pattern is always a little different.

My Homeschool Co-op

I love the co-op that we do for homeschool!!

Every Wednesday, we go to a church to do co-op. The parents volunteer to teach the classes, and we get to be in them!! Several classes are offered at each period.

At the first period, I have Fun With Clay Polymer. Every week we make a farm animal. Our teacher bakes it and gives it to us the next week.

We’re making frogs!!

The second period I have NaNoWriMo. Mom teaches that class. In November we are going to write our own novels!!

After the two classes, we have lunch. Once we are done eating, everyone plays Infection, which is like tag. Some people, including me, have walkie-talkies for Infection.

My next class after lunch, third period, is DIY. We make lots of projects. For example, salt dough, which is play doh. Also, we made bracelets.

My last class is Imagine and Play, also taught by Mom. Every week we get different supplies such as boxes, ropes, PVC pipes, tape, and more. With those, we can make whatever we want.

Co-op is super fun, and I wish it was every day!!

Corn Snakes

The corn snake is found all over North America and are very popular pet snakes. They live about six to eight years in the wild but can live about twenty-three years in captivity. Corn snakes are not venomous and are my favorite type of snake!!  Corn snakes can grow up to six feet (182 centimeters)!

This snake’s name is Popcorn.

Diet

Like all snakes, corn snakes are carnivorous.  They eat mice, small lizards, and frogs. Also, they may climb trees to eat unguarded bird eggs.

Reproduction

Corn snakes usually breed shortly after winter. They lay twelve to twenty-four eggs. It takes about ten weeks until the baby snakes come out. The young snakes use a scale called an egg tooth to slit the egg open. When they hatch, they are about five inches (SO CUTE!!!).

Pets

Corn snakes are great pets because they do not get big. Also, they are very tame so people love them! Another reason to get them as pets is that they are rated in the top 5 best snake pets.  Lastly, all you have to feed them are mice and water.

As you can see, corn snakes are very fascinating.

Los Angeles Angels vs. The Texas Rangers: Star Wars Night

Our dad took us to Angels stadium for Star Wars night. When we got into the stadium, they gave us a free rebel pilot rally monkey. Before the game started, CP-30, R2-D2, Darth Vader, and Kylo Ren marched onto the field!! Some girls shot Angels t-shirts into the crowd, too.

We had to wait forever for the game to begin. Finally, it started. The first innings were very short. Luckily, at the end, the Angels won!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!! My brother, John, got on TV while some news reporters were talking about the game. When we got home, it was about 11:30 P.M. We were so tired.

The game was very fun, and I hope we go to Angels stadium again soon.

The 2017 Solar Eclipse

For the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, we went to Caspers Wilderness Park. We met a couple of our friends. We got to see the solar eclipse though our glasses and a telescope. Also, we went to the nature center there, and we got to pet an adorable snake with big eyes (I LOVE snakes!!)!

 

When the solar eclipse was over, we went to the playground and played Lava Monster for the majority of the time!! It was super fun!!

What is a solar eclipse??

A solar eclipse usually occurs every three hundred and seventy-five years. It’s when the moon goes in front of the sun looking like the picture below.

Solar Eclipses are very cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
