    Picky eater

    Big pet stores like Petco and Petsmart have large and small crickets. The small crickets are 1/4" to 1/2" and should be the appropriate size. Aliza

    As I mentioned in a previous post, the one you posted about before looks like a blizzard to me. The middle one with the black splotches is an "aberrant' because it has a broken body band but the tail bands seem to be solid. I don't know how well the color is coming off in the picture. If it...

    What is this?

    You can call yours a "high yellow". That means that there are fewer spots (though not so few that it would be called a "hypo") which means that you can see a lot of the base yellow coloring. Aliza

    Enclosure questions

    Sounds like a well thought out point. Variety is definitely the spice of life for these guys. Aliza

    What age..

    They definitely don't need any parental care, but they do need the breeder's care to make sure they will eat and thrive (because some of them don't) before selling them to someone. Aliza

    Please help, Is my Golden Gecko sick??

    I don't know anything about golden geckos, but there's a chance it's getting ready to shed. I have never heard of any gecko problem that involves white spots so I recommend watching it for a week or so to see what happens. Aliza

    Picky eater

    Was it a big chain pet store or a family owned reptile store kind of place? It's not unusual for a new gecko to not eat, though juveniles ultimately do. Are your temperatures air or floor? If it's 90 in the air, that's way too hot, so go with floor temps and don't worry about the air temps as...

    Deodorizing wood

    Take it out of the enclosure, spray it with hydrogen peroxide, let it air dry outside. If it still smells, consider baking it in the oven for awhile. Aliza

    Rescue gecko egg bound?

    I'm not entirely sure that's an egg. It's sticking out way too far. It looks like an abdominal hernia to me and I'd recommend a vet visit (she could be gravid as well). Aliza

    What is this?

    It's the yellow frost geckos that have been known to have tumors. Not the gecko you have. In my opinion the underarm pockets are harmless. There have been different theories about why these pockets develop including too much calcium, ready to breed, overweight . . . I don't know why they get...

    Enclosure questions

    I've helped the digging issue by providing humid hides with coco fiber. I have to say that I haven't seen any of my geckos digging in there unless they are females laying. Aliza

    Is a 71 inch long tank too big

    I got a gold dust day gecko as my next gecko after a leopard gecko. It's not all that hard, you just have to do the research. If you decide to do this, get one only. They are much more territorial than some other genera and if you get 2 there's a good likelihood you will eventually end up...
