Hello everyone! :D I just got my first giant gecko wednesday! I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on getting to feed agian because i have not seen him eat yet. The lady i bought him from said that he was feeding on pinkies and i tried that today and he did not even look intrested. i hace crikets in there for him and i did try feeding him peaches and he did drink some of the liquid and lick the peach. Ill post some pics of him as soon as i can. Thanks!!!

Mine didnt eat for about 2 weeks after i got it.So dont be surprised if it dosent eat for awhile.Its just how it is.
They way i was told to feed them pinkies that worked well.Was kill the pinkie and put it in a bowel.And stick it in the cage about 5 min untill lights out.And he/she should eat it soon after.Just a way to try it.

i dont know but are henkels are not supposed to have the leachen spots just behing their sholders right? because mine seems to only have them behind the shoulders and by his/her hind legs. or is he going to get more leachen paterns when he gets older because adults seem to have more of the paterns than the juvies do.
