They are going to go for the broad leaf weeds before they go for the grasses.

email me at epirog@comcast.net and I'll send you some notes on their care.

There is a decent guide available also... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sulcata-Leop...ref=pd_sim_b_1

Just wondered if this was because IV got lots more for him to eat n grass is only if there's nothing else to munch on ?

cut an area of your lawn short and keep it that way, they are nibblers.

Hi I kept and bred leopards for years and had hundreds of babies what I found in every case if you bring them up in a entirely dry inviorment they will most certainly pyramid bath them twice a day and mist them with a spray frequently . I have now raised aldabras and radiated the same way with no pyramiding what is one of the most important things is exercise one of my female leopards grew to 32 inches and according to her new keepers still growing.
Hope this helps
