Leachies are far easier to kep than any of the other Rhacodactylids (many years of experience). They do grow slower at first (because they have an immense lifespan) but the juvenile stage is very enjoyable!
Leachies can be "streaky" eaters....sometimes young leachies will destroy every cricket they see and then go onto a babyfood only diet that can last months. Their metabolism is incredibly slow and they can subsist on surprisingly little for extended periods without negative effects. I have some very high quality juveniles I am in the process of selling...contact me if interested.
