    Default Does your tokay gecko have any weird habits like this?

    I was in the pet store the other day buying rats for my ball python, and I was just looking around. There was a tokay gecko (aren't tokay geckos not for beginners and thus not supposed to be in a petshop???), on his back between his wall and hide. I asked the cashier and she said, "Oh, he does that all the time." Which is most likely just what they tell the public.
    I don't really know this species, but do any of yours have any strange habits like this? I could see him breathing, but it just seemed odd that he'd be on his back, so I was kind of concerned.

    that is definitely not healthy behavior. I do not expect that gecko to survive

    as far as them being in pet stores, they're absolutely not for beginners but there are no regulations that prohibit their sale in pet stores.

    Do you think there's anything anyone can do for him??
    I'm hoping some random person who has no clue what they're doing doesn't buy him...with any luck someone experienced will. OR, even better, the stupid pet store employees will actually take responsibility of their animals, and take him to the vet. Unfortunately, it's not likely. While the pet store (PetValu) seems to be all right (better than Petco, at any rate), as far as the health goes, they don't seem to care. There was a severely dehydrated mountain horned dragon in there once. It either died or someone bought it.

    Is there a particular illness you have in mind? If so, what are the other symptoms? Are they visible?
