    Are these Plants non-toxic to geckos?

    I saw the concern was something like if the crickets eat the allium and allium is toxic to dogs, that the crickets eating the allium species might be toxic to geckos, though it's never been proven, but that's a lot of leaps... I don't think crickets particularly like onion, garlic, or scallions...

    Are these Plants non-toxic to geckos?

    I'm working on making a bioactive enclosure (a few) for African fat tailed and Leopard Geckos. Being a bit of a cheapskate and liking to grow plants from the grocery store... I have some plants I can't find on lists of toxic or non-toxic to ask about. I have a ginger plant (grown from a...

    new AFT owner questions

    My AFT male, about the same size eats almost exclusively crickets. I can sometimes trick him to take a superworm, but I have to put something more delicious up front first, like say a waxworm, which is why I don't do it often. They also like Dubia Roaches. But yeah, leave him alone except to...

    Female Leopard Gecko not eating, but pooping

    I bought a female leopard gecko from a pet store (local one--which I've bought from before). (Kiran--posted her before) She grew up with her sister, whom was bought ahead of her. (I was going to buy her sister too, but someone already had bought her). She has a nice fat tail when I bought her...

    Bought an African Fat-tailed Gecko, but died within 24 hours

    I'm really sad. I contacted the seller and got a refund for the price of the gecko, but not the shipping. I'm giving them a second chance since I've bought from them before. They originally promised a gecko without a regrown tail, so I'm hoping they won't let me down this time. I bought a ball...

    Bought an African Fat-tailed Gecko, but died within 24 hours

    I bought an African fat tailed Gecko, set it up in quarantine, put in a humidity box with spagnum moss sprayed it really well, a water dish, a hide on the cool end and it died within 24 hours. The other geckos I own are perfectly fine (I sanitize well between tanks anyway... just in case). I'm...

    New Leopard Gecko Morphs?

    Bought a male to service my two females... It doesn't show up well here, but there is also a faint white stripe down the middle of his dorsal. I put him in temporary digs until he gets out of quarantine. He was quite freaked out because apparently the shipper shipped to the wrong address...

    Female Leopard Gecko Wild type?

    She was in a local pet shop with her sister, but her sister got sold and she didn't, so I took mercy on her and bought her. She's pretty chill. I named her Kiran Vijaya. Kiran after a famous Indian woman Scientist (in biology). And Vijaya after the first Indian woman herpetologist. My other...

    Bioactive substrates for a Leopard Gecko

    After finding out one of the "Leopard Geckos" was actually an African Fat Tailed Gecko... (I didn't know, and it was labeled improperly in the pet store) I decided to separate them and give them their own tanks. (Though for some reason they were constantly with each other in the old tank--I...

    Trying to figure out Leopard Gecko Morph

    After looking around a bunch, I think he's actually an African Fat Tailed Gecko, which would explain a whole lot. I'll be changing his care to meet his needs better. The pet store mix up made him misunderstood for so long. I'll up the number of crickets for him. I feel so sorry towards him for...

    Trying to figure out Leopard Gecko Morph

    I bought this Leopard Gecko at a local small Mom and Pop pet shop. I'm trying to figure out what kind of morph he (He is male) is because he definitely isn't wild type. (BTW, he came with the broken and regrown tail, not shown) I named him Tyson, after Mike Tyson and Neil Degrasse Tyson. Stabs...
