    Much thanks to @Riley ann for such a nice Leopard baby (hatched late December). Came out of the box at 129.2 grams and is settling in well. After a morning soak hit the softened Mazuri like a beast. Sanitized the tub I used for my Russian and added new substrate. Thanks to @Tom not sure why I waited the fine grade orchid bark on top is the bomb. It looks good and helps maintain my needed moisture. More photos to come as we grow!

    Congrats. There is already a lot of pyramiding. On Babcocki type leopards it's hard to stop this. Keep the humidity high and don't use a mercury vapor bulb to get the least amount of further pyramiding.
