    No regurgitation yet. I’m thinking that it’s time to either move him out of the hospital terrarium into a bigger one, or release him back into the house. But now that there’s a big intruder hanging around I worry they will fight. I wish I only had to worry about one. I feel so bad that Mi-Chan can’t enjoy pure sunlight in his old area now that it’s overtaken by the fat one (his name is Fat-Chan) It’s the same one we caught and released outside the condo. Apparently he made the 40ft travel and then climbed back up 6 stories to get home.

    On another note, there were two other gold dusts in our condo today. One came in from outside, stared at my wife, and then left. The other one is hanging out in a cabinet under our TV. I don't want another rehab.

    One pic is the day he shed 13 days ago playing dead in my hand. The second pic was a week later.

    Your photos are remarkable! I never knew GDG had this "feign death" skill.

    How did this shed go? Was Midori-Chan able to shed independently?

    The intruder gecko hangs out in our house every day now and stares at my wife all day long. She fed him a fruit smoothie and he ate all of it and thanked us by pooping all over. I wonder if itís his first fruit ever since they all live in a concrete high rise.
    Has your intruder been back for more smoothies? Feed them once -- they WILL return.

    I'm sorry for my absence.

    I noticed you on Reptile Lighting! I'm glad I stepped up and asked Dr. Baines to stop by. Have you decided what's next for Midori-Chan?

    Yes he shed by himself perfectly fine. Fat-Chan basically lives In our house now. We tried feeding him outside but after he went outside he got spooked from something and ran. He came back in later and probably feels apt safer inside. So he eats smoothies everyday.

    I moved midori Chan’s terrarium one morning to get natural morning sun but then fat Chan and him started interacting between the glass. I wonder if they were fighting.

    I really want to let Mi-Chan live free in the house but he’s going to fight with fat-Chan.

    John, it's 5:01 PM in Oregon. I can't read any posts on this thread beyond this /\ /\ post from Aliza. Can you?

    If not, we aren't the only ones who've been affected this time.

    My computer's tech guy plans a visit this Sunday evening about 6:30.


    EDIT:
    Now that I've posted I can, at least temporarily, view later posts on this thread.

    (I have no idea whether I'll be able to see later posts if I sign out and sign in again.)

    Mi-Chan is shedding again. 12 days after the last one. This seems frequent, I wonder if he's not yet full grown.

    Still undecided to let him free into the house where he will probably fight with Fat-Chan and probably a big house gecko. Mi-Chan seems a lot more brave than the other geckos, doesn't get too skittish around us.

    Interesting that he chose to climb to the highest part of the tank before hanging by one hand and trying to pull his shed off... these types of choices must be why he's always getting in trouble.

    Decided not to let Mi-Chan out into the house yet. Fat-chan disappeared for a whole week with the last sighting on November 6th. But we saw him again yesterday. I mixed in extra calcium and D3 with his smoothie so he doesn't get into trouble.

    Built Mi-Chan a bigger house, just need to find a time in the middle of day to transfer him.

    We saw a new adult gold dust outside our unit in the common area. He hangs out behind a trash can and on the outside of the bridge between the condo and parking structure. We call him Gomi-Chan.

    It sounds like your GDG family is growing!

    Can we see Mi-Chan's new home?

    Moved Mi-Chan into the new terrarium today. Trying to get him out of the old one I think I literally scared pee out of him. He also then made a big poop.

    After getting him into the new terrarium he spent a lot of time trying to find a way out. He peed 5 additional times, the last one climbing to his new basking spot up high, lifting is leg and flicking pee all over the place....

    How very lovely! Mi-Chan's come a very long ways since you guys rescued him. Gotta mark his new territory!

    Did you build his enclosure from scratch?

    Concentrate on diagonal bamboo like you've done. Angle Mi-Chan's Exo Terra Jungle Vines diagonally too. Sometimes day geckos get "Floppy Tail Syndrome (FTS)" from excessive time on vertical perches or hanging upside down.

    Ok so Mi-Chan chooses to jump across the different platforms. He'll jump 6 inches down from his basking branch to his fruit branch, 8 inches from his fruit branch to his large vertical sleeping branch, and then another 6 inches back to his basking branch.

    But today he was basking on his branch and I put a container with two crickets in. He literally just jumped down 18 inches into the container and gobbled them up.

    Now I'm asking myself if I need more branches or does he just like jumping everywhere? It's almost as if he can't be bothered going to long way... When I add more branches, he becomes very perturbed on how to navigate and almost doesn't like it.
