    Default Frog eye gecko licking sand?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I recently got a a new Frog eye gecko, He seems to be doing great , he ate really well, he's active , digging alot and making burrows, but sometimes he'll stick out his tongue and lick some sand. It's just very fine natural sand, not calci sand. Is this okay? Can he get impacted? should I be worried?

    I switched my leopard gecko from carpet to sand last year. I had the same problem. Also when he was catching and eating his crickets he would get sand all over his mouth and face and it would jut build up. I waited to see if he would maybe get used to it and learn to stop but he didn't. I had to clean off the sand myself and a switched back to carpet again. The only way to prevent him from eating the sand is to take it out and put carpet back in.
