    Default Gecko behaviour


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello,

    My partner and I picked up an AFT in October from a reptile expo. We were told she had had him for two years and was looking to rehome. He settled in pretty quick and easy and was a quite active hunter. Mostly out of necessity we switched cricket suppliers once and since then (and switching back to different crickets as he did not like those) he has needed to be hand (tweezer) fed most crickets and meal worms and is not really hunting.

    What might bring on that change?

    Also, after feeding him this morning (in which he only ate two crickets) he began pacing really quickly around his enclosure. I am wondering if because we normally have that side covered he caught his reflection and got territorially. Any ideas? He ate about six mealworms after the incident(none of which were dusted though).

    Also, anyone else's AFT climb the back wall of their enclosure? He's very good at it.

    They do sometimes, like leopard geckos, go to the edge of their territory or enclosure and then try to get out. Many geckos have slowed down on eating at this time of the year. Keep offering and see how it goes.
