    Default Gecko tail wagging?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! A couple months ago I got an Oreo Whiteout AFT. She's about a year and a half old, and is doing great! I only am confused about one thing, and that's the tail wag she does right before she eats a cricket or mealworm. I'm told it's a common behavior, but is there a real purpose behind it? Or is she just excited?

    I don't know if it has any functional purpose, but it's pretty common with leopard geckos and fat tails.

    I have read that they wave their tail before striking to distract the prey, but it’s only a theory.
