    Question Time to sell?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So a few weeks ago I received two unhealthy geckos, but now one looks like I can sell. Is she to thin? None of the money I get will go to me but instead to mango, the second gecko I got. I intend to keep mango because she has no claws so she can't climb. Mango is also a bit skinny so I am going to take her to a vet checkup. The money will also go to giving mango a proper tank. So do you think the first gecko can be sold?20151009_150412.jpg20151009_150556.jpg20151009_150601.jpg

    Mango looks to be in bad shape. Hopefully you can tend to her as soon as possible regardless of if you sell the other gecko or not.

    I would flush them and put them out of their misery.

    They are suffering.

    Absolutely. When your internal organs are failing and you look like a holocaust victim. You might feel the same way.

    In the human sense. I guess you would ride it out. More power to you.

    That is not a humane way to end their suffering. I would suggest you think twice before posting advice like that, it doesn't help one bit, and just leads to flame wars and worse.

    That's the dumbest advice i have read in a long while.., how on earth do you know that they are suffering , have organs that are failing, and they can't be helped no more??? Are you a veterinarian with X-ray vision, i believe not...
    Granted, Mango looks very thin and needs to put on some weight very fast, the first one however could be a bit heavier but doesn't look extremely bad.., in fact, both of them don't look like they should be euthanised without giving them a fighting chance.

    I think The Funky Gecko is doing a great job trying to help these animals.

    I don't want to turn this page into a health thing but if you would like I can add a new post on the leopard gecko health and disease forum. When I got them they lived in a small bug box thing with nothing but sand. The first few weeks they pooped sand and nothing else. They got past that stage now their pooping healthy. The only problem now is making them eat. I think mango might have parasites so that's why I going to take her to a exotic vet nearby.
    Oh and LEOPARD1 no... just no. I've heard worse survive so these guys have a fighting chance.

    Ofcourse they have a chance.
    I have seen far whorse cases as well, and even took care for 2 of them myself, and they recovered just fine.
    As i have said above, i think your doing a great job and i'm sure after a vet check up and some tender love and care Mango will also get better soon.

    Besides that though, i wouldn't sell the first one already, make sure it eats, poops, sheds and does well overall for a longer period of time before passing it on to a new owner.
    I don't think you want to become that person who sold an animal that's not doing well.

    Best wishes and good luck with your animals.
