I just adopted a Vietnamese Gecko and am having trouble. He won't eat and HATES being picked up. What do I do?

Please post a picture of your gecko. By some chance might he be a Gekko ulikovskii---a golden gecko?

The scientific name of which btw is Gekko badenii, G. ulikovskii is just a juniorsynonyme.

How long have you had it? If its a recent addition then stop trying to handle it. Most Gekkos don't take well to handling and are very defensive anyway. Handling coupled with a new environment is most likely stopping it from eating.

More info and photos please.

Was he a long term captive? What was he eating?

Depending on the actual species, how are you keeping it? A detail of the enclosure, temp, humidity and food types offered?

We're all happy to help but you need to help us with as much info as possible. Cool?

Thanks,


Michael
