    Lizzie.jpg


    We got her and her partner when they were still very young ringtails back in 1994 Edward passed away at 18 years old. Last month Lizzie started an accelerated cycle of shedding out of control, and it affected her appetite. I nightly soaked her in warm water and removed all the shed, .especially concentrating on the eyelids. It seemed to be effective and she ate her crickets and seemed much better. Last week she started shedding even more frequently and her eyesight seemed problematic. It was a hot sunny day, I came home early from work, and brought her outside to sit in the sun with me. She loved hanging out on the warm deck with me, seemed very content and happy. She passed away a few hours later that evening. I am thinking that at 24 years old, she was just tired and old.. and not much more could be done for her, but we spent a great afternoon together that day.. and that made it easier for me and my wife... she was just part of our lives for sooo long. Just wanted to post somewhere where people understand Geckos. The pic was of our sunny day on the deck. Thanks

    I'm sorry Lizzie passed away. 24 years and 18 years as well are incredible lives for leos!

    I am sorry to hear of your loss of Lizzie, but wow! What a great long life! And a wonderful last day; her life, if it had to end, could not have ended in a better way. Thank you for taking great care of them both. ♥♥

She actually knew when we were in the room and always was kind of a "social" Gecko Thanks for the replies..
