Do you mean what is vermiculite? It's a soil additive used to help with moisture retention in gardening etc. Used alone it does the same thing, which makes it a good choice for a hide box... kinda messy though, as your leo will wind up tracking some of it out of the humid hide. Moistened paper towel doesn't have that particular problem.

the site jay mentioned looked really informative. though i suggest a pet rock instead. they are easy to take care of and you could keep it for the rest of your life... it can help you open windows too.

leopard... you don't seem to be paying much attention to caresheets or people, so I'm going to list exactly what you need (cheapest possible) and apprx cost:

- 15 gallon tank (10 gal is TOO small), 15$ used
- Secure lid, 5-10$ used
- Papertowel for bedding (free from the kitchen)
- 3 hides (if they are from the petstore, 10-30$ each, or if they are just upside down margarine tubs with holes in the sides, you can get them free from your kitchen or from the olive bar at the grocery store)
- rocks and sticks (boiled and scrubbed), free from the woods
- fake plants (5-10$ from wal-mart/zellers)
- moss/vermiculite to go in the humid hide (2$)
- undertank heater (20$ from the petstore or 10-15$ from walmart/zellers)
- thermometer (5-10$)
- food dish (5$ tops)
- water dish (5$ tops)
- mealworms/crickets/silkworms (varies)
- calc powder (10$)
- vit powder (10$)
- bottle cap for calc powder in the tank (free)
- leopard gecko (from a breeder it will be way cheaper and healtheir. Depending on colour morph, cheapest though would be 35$ for a juvenile normal)

I think that's it, if I think of anything else I will let you know!

** i based the prices on canadian prices, so yours' will be lower!**

As you see, its costs a lot more then $35. But it is important to get all that is needed for your gecko to ensure a happy, long life.
