my pictus gecko that i got LAST night got out when my dad forgot to close the lid.i know he is in either my room or the room next to it.most likely mine.i have been juggling ideas of luring him out like a heat mat under repti-carpet with food on top .can you guys give me some ideas to lure him out?????????ASAP PLEASE

the idea with the food can work. I put crickets in cricket-boxes without any shelter for the crickets. Then I bring them out into the room where the gecko is supposed to be in the evening. In the night you can hear the noise of the gecko trying to eat the crickets in the box. This method worked with Ptychozoon, Goniurosaurus and Leos (yes, sometimes I also forget to close the lid... :roll: )

Good luck!
