    Some geckos are more sensitive than others to changes. Now that I'm home more, I get to observe my gold dust day gecko who is in a 18x18x24" enclosure. Sometimes she's so loud when she jumps and hits the glass that I can hear her from halfway across the room. I see her eating her fruit occasionally but I've never seen her eat a cricket, though there aren't any crickets in the cage now and I feed her crickets 3 times a week.

    Do you let your crickets just run in the cage? I have to leave them in a container. He hates the ground so he probably won't hunt them very well on the ground.

    Although our gecko will eat shamelessly in front of us multiple times a day. On Friday my wife saw him make the circuit I drew (except jump #4, that was only today) over 10 times. That is to get to his fruit smoothie on the right after jump #1. I think he just really likes jumping.

    He pees and poops off his basking branch and it's absolutely hilarious. Sometimes he just pees where he's sitting but most time he will get into a position on the side, raise his leg and tail and then pee/poop. Today I saw him literally hang with just his two front arms and dangle his legs and tail in mid air and drop a huge poop.

    With all the smoothie he eats, he pees like 6 or 7 times a day. I feed him a little bit of crickets every other day. He'll wander around near the bottom where his crickets should be and look for them on the off-days.

    I have nearly 50 geckos so I don't really have time to pay that close attention. All I know is that crickets go in on Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning and I rarely see any in the cage. And the gecko is nice and fat!
