    Question my gecko never gets angry?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    i'm still new to this, so i'm sorry if this is just dumb or not. but i'v only had george for 2-3 months now and..he's only ever opened his mouth what could be seen as a anger thing once...but..it was small..like, he didn't do it barely as much as i'v seen other geckos do it.

    for some reason, when i pick george up. he doesn't mind/care, he just puts his feet on my fingers and let's me.

    he let's me stroke/pet his back + head and sometimes he has food on his mouth from me feeding him and then he just..lets me touch his mouth to move the food away cause he can't reach it to lick it off.

    the problem is, i don't know if he'll EVER let me know if he's angry/annoyed. i'm worried that he'll always be this docile..

    he's been such a good boy, i'm doing everything in my power that everything stays good. and cause i go to my dads 3 days a week. i especially try and make sure everything is set up for before i leave. so my mum only has to replace food, maybe pick him up. and spray the tank.

    i also make sure to clean out the tank.


    i guess the main reason why i'm confused, is because when i bought him. he was terrified...but he never ever has bitten me, he just..seems to trust me?

    is this normal????????

    Count your blessings. Geckos can't act passive aggressive. If they're unhappy or angry you'll know it. If he was in an enclosure with other geckos when you bought him, he may have been spooked by them.

    he was bought from a pet shop were he was with one other gecko, but that's it. when i bought him, and when he was in a tank for himself. maybe he was grateful for it cause there wasn't a other gecko anymore?

    but he's defiantly gotten happier and he knows when i'm picking him up. maybe i'm just lucky?? idk i feel dumb with this thread but i just kept thinking if i was doing something wrong
