    Default Fat tail gecko missing


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Yeah so I got a juvenile african fat tail gecko last sunday and yesterday I placed him in his bioactive enclosure. Today, I cant find him anywhere. His cover is a nylon mesh held together by velcro. There werent any obvious signs that he has escaped. Is it possible that he burrowed so deep that he disappeared somewhere. So far he hasnt eaten or pooped as well though i have made progress in handling. Any advice would help

    They do like to burrow, and if there are no branches or plants that reach the top, it is unlikely that it was able to escape.
    I would advise against any unnecessary handling until the gecko is eating regularly and reliably.

    Yeah I hate to admit it, but my gecko has escaped. I think the Velcro didn't stick too well and he got out. Definitely a fault in my part, but my dad was really quite the idiot here. I actually had him in a temporary enclosure but my dad forced me to get him out. Really hate that guy, can't believe I'm his Son.
