    Physical care concern

    I had Groot out today to run around a bit, just as I was getting ready to put her back into her enclosure she was doing this “gasping” like thing. I’m not sure if she lost her breath or if she was choking on something. This is the first time she’s done this, I’m wondering if I should be greatly...

    Help! Crested gecko sitting in weird position?

    I just brought home my new crestie yesterday. He was super active last night exploring around. He has lots of hiding places and things to climb. Today I noticed that he’s sort of sitting in a weird position and hasn’t moved. He’s still breathing but he’s lying almost on his side with his legs...

    My new crested making me worry

    My first crestie two days ago (first reptile). I know, I know, it's normal for it to not eat for a few days. I worry anyway. I guess I expected it to move around a bit more than this? It's just unnerving to watch it hang upside down for twelve hours with zero movement. I've moved it up to it's...
