    Does the 1-4 week handling wait period for Crested Geckos apply if you use the same enclosure?

    I recently purchased a Crested gecko from a pet store that had just been turned in yesterday in wonderful condition. Her previous owners took great care of her, and when I held her in the shop and she was very calm and comfortable. When I got her she came with the same enclosure that she had...

    Handling tips.. What could I be doing better?

    I recently acquired a gecko that is approximately 3 to 4 months old. A coworker had adopted her/him two months before and was having trouble to put it lightly. She asked if I would take the little one because I have a fair amount of reptile experience. The leo had been biting her daily. She...

    Aggressive crested gecko?

    Hi, I currently have two crested geckos, and I am in love with them! I got them both at the same time from a previous owner about 6 months ago. One of them, Merlin, is 3 I think. The other, Phoenix is around 1 and a half or 2 now. They came with the vivariums and decor, and I haven't changed...

    How to connect with my Gecko?

    I got a Leopard Gecko named Davey a few months ago. I haven't touched him though. I really wanted one that I could hold and be friends with. I'm a bit scared he'll bite me or run away.

    Aberforth's First Handling Sesh

    Last night I got my gargoyle gecko Aberforth out for his first handling session! I've waited two and a half weeks and only touched him twice in that time. The first was because it was freaking me out that he was sleeping basically on his back with his tail underneath him and his little hands...

    gecko tried to bite me?

    I know this sounds silly that I'm worried about this. I bought my leopard gecko of almost 2 years a repti shelter and some spagnum moss yesterday (i was previously using a tupperware and paper towel). I decided to redo and clean his cage since I was going to be in it anyway. I put him in a...

    Handling a new fat tail

    Hi all! I am new to these forums, and new to geckos in general, but I have 5 snakes, so I have a pretty good idea of reptile care, and I did quite a bit of research on AFT geckos before I picked my little guy up! I'm just wondering what the best way to start handling my gecko is. I've had him...
