    Default Completely new to geckoes.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    A few hours ago I found out a young girl that is a family friend has a gecko that needs to be rehomed. This girl can't really even take care of a dog properly, so this gecko needs to be out of that situation. Children get pets too often that they can't or won't take care of the correctly. It really breaks my heart to see animals in bad conditions.


    I decided to take in the little one. I have limited knowledge of geckoes, I only have bearded dragons that are kept in great conditions.
    I have very little information on the gecko, unknown type, age and condition. To my knowledge it is in a small plastic container with no type of heating.

    I have a 10 gallon and a 29 gallon tank. I have crickets, calcium powder, multivitamins, heat lamp and heat bulbs I use for my bearded dragons. I'm not at home so I'm not sure on the specific brands of everything. This is a completely out of the blue situation and need help with caring for this little one. I need basic care instructions and possibly emergency treatment.

    Some new information just got told to me. It is spotted and yellow. I have no pictures at the moment and what it looks like is being told to me via text.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be a great help. I don't have much knowledge on geckoes and I don't live close to any pet stores so anything needed will have to be ordered online.
