I hear yah; I got my hands full with quite a few herps to…lol. Leachie care is pretty much the same as all Rhacs except for a few minor things. One they are not that fond of live prey, esp when young. You are going to have to mix meat baby food in with their fruit in a 1:2 ratio (meat to fruit). This way they get the protein they need to grow properly. Two, leachies also grow much slower, taking at least 2 years to reach maturity and full size. So as I'm sure you know, they need a much larger cage then cresties do. Other then the picky eating thing, they are easy to care for if you are experienced with other Rhacs. You won’t be disappointed =)
