    Default New baby gecko hasnít eaten or pooped since I got him (2 days ago)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Name- Space Puppy
    Sex- unsure
    Age- 2 months
    Tank temperatures- Hottest is 93 and Coolest is 72
    I got him 2 days ago at a pet expo
    He looks perfectly healthy and is acting normally and I’ve even seen him drink
    He hasn’t eaten yet but I have dubia nymphs in a bowl in case he stumbles across them and decides to eat
    He hasn’t pooped once!
    The breeder said he was feeding on crickets and roaches so I assumed he’s eaten some point in his 2 months of being alive.
    They moved all the way from Texas to Alabama to get to the pet expo so maybe he’s super stressed.
    I don’t want to handle him to put him in a warm bath or anything. What should I do?

    Give him some time to settle down. He will be fine, he's just stressed now. Keep offering. If you're feeding tiny roaches, they may be too small. I don't use roaches, but even with my hatchlings when I was breeding I would use 1/4" to 1/2" crickets.
