    Default How old is Fez?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I just weighed my gecko today and she is only 5 grams exactly! Is she underweight? I really want to know how old she is. She is a juvenile for sure. She ate 2 mealworms in the last two days (she was stressed because I only got her like two weeks ago), but she ate 7 mealworms this evening. She was hungry lol!
    This is a picture of her. My hand is aproximatly 6.5 inches from my wrist to my middle finger.

    Well, it's difficult to tell he age unless provided by the breeder, I have seen 8 month old geckos at 6 grames (REALLY MALNOURISHED) and healthy 5 month olds at 30 grames, by the look of thgat picture, I'd say she's a bit thin. Try to feed her a varied diet, as often as she takes it (I'd try every day), it would be excellent if you could provide crickets and roaches as well, along with the worms... there are many feeders out there, try several and see what she preffers

    Ok I have got 5 crickets to see if she will like them. Do I just put one or two in and see if she likes them?

    That's a good idea. Try one or two crickets.

    Yes, one or two, most geckos love crickets, after those, keep offering one by one until she isn't showing interest in them, and remove any uneated crickets from the cage
