    Exclamation Tornado!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Well, if you know anything abiut Oklahoma, its that tornados are a thing. My county and others surrounding it have a tornado warning, and its looking kinda gross here. I'm super worried about the geckos. My house spent have a tornado shelter so we go to a good friends house. Thing is: They have 7 dogs and 2 cats. I have 3 snakes, 2 guinea pigs, and 2 crested geckos. Their animals are in crates of course, but the barking would scare my poor geckos so bad! Along with Pockets scare of escaping last night, AND Bea just got moved to a new tank last night! All of my animals have travel cases, so transport isnt an issue. I have no idea what I'd do if something actually happened to the house/their enclosures! In the little emergency bag I have Pangea and water, so food wouldnt really be a problem. If anything did happen we'd probably stay at a relatives house. I mean whats it like there?? Pockets tank I could probably transport actually, but no one else. Sorry this post is so jumbly, I'm just nervous. Any thoughts?

    put the snakes in pillowcases and then you can put multiple snakes in the same bin. this is OK for up to a few days if there's sufficient room that no one is getting squished. get some little critter keepers for the geckos. temporary quarters can be cramped if it's an emergency, you can go a couple days and then figure out what to do next.

    Awesome, thanks so much! Here's what I have for the geckos:15236469540711057656183.jpg1523646999713806779549.jpg1523647082784591444049.jpg

    I'm just so so worried that the stress on the geckos from the last few days + this won't be healthy for them...

    Hoping you make it OK through this storm. For the next one, I would also recommend a couple of Kritter Keepers for your geckos - there's a little more room and ventilation in them, and they'd be ok in those for a while if need be. Also, take a gallon of purified water with you, and pack a small spray bottle for humidity and drinking water.

    Thanks so much! 2 kritter keepers, right? One for each? One male one female, wouldn't go great in the same one lol. Pretty much made it through any tornados, though the fires are getting alot worse. The closest one is probably an hour away, but there is thick smoke and a strong fire smell here. Still have extreme fire warning, so not out of the clear on that. I have lots of ReptiSafe purified water packed, along with the rest of my ReptiSafe. In packing and filling a small mister right now. Thank you! The smell isn't as bad inside, but I have a fan in the reptile room with the doors and windows closed. Fingers crossed!

    Yup, two Kritter Keepers. If it's smoky in your house, you can try covering the tanks or Keepers with a damp dish towel to try to keep some of the smoke out. Good luck to you! I can't imagine having to deal with those types of disasters!
