This is not good.

If cared for properly, giant day geckos can live for a long time. Records of them surviving for 20 years exist, but the average lifespan is between 6 to 8 years.


Natural sunlight and heat outdoors is not the same as indoor (artificial heating and UVB) in a small area. I would definitely provide a larger enclosure.

Phelsuma grandis are so big, it really seems like a larger enclosure will be best. :)
