    Question Afts winter behavior and growth rate


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Recently my aft has become less active hiding more than usual and eats less frequently than usual. Typically I fed every second day, now she's eating once maybe twice a week. She hasn't lost any weight, still sheds well and looks bright eyed and fat tailed I can only attribute the change in behavior to the change in temperature at this time of year. Is this commonly observed in AFTs during colder months?

    Also, this gecko is still young, under a year old. She weighs 37g currently, she appears to have plateaued in weight gain/growth. Could this also be in conjunction with the time of year and if so will she begin to gain again in warmer months or has she topped out on the smaller side at this point?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like winter behavior to me.
