    Default Help needed with baby gold dust day gecko!!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everybody!

    I bought a gravid female gold dust day gecko about 4 months ago, and then found a baby day gecko in my room about two months later (must have hatched and escaped the bioactive terrarium!). I took the baby and put it in itís own little terrarium, where I fed it some gecko jellies and (calcium dusted) fruit flies. About two weeks ago it started acting strange and I saw it have a seizure. I looked it up and read that seizures mostly are a sign of stress, a calcium deficiency or a vitamin deficiency. I transferred it to a simpler setup (deli cup, wet paper towels and a few sticks/branches), and made sure that it had the repashy crested gecko diet (for vitamins) at all times. I also started dusting the fruit flies more heavily with calcium and d3. It was eating well and seemed to be doing better, but it had another seizure today. I also noticed that itís toes kind of curl upwards.

    Anyway, I was hoping for some advice, as I donít quite know what to do. Itís stressing me and I donít want to mess anything up for this little guy (or girl). Itís the first time Iím caring for a baby gecko and as mentioned, I havenít been caring for gold dust day geckos very long either. Itís also my first time posting on a forum, so I donít know exactly how it works...

    As I said, any advice will help!!
    Thanks,
    Nina
