    Default Approx Age?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello there! I'm a first time gecko owner and after doing a lot of research, I decided to bring one home. I did go through a pet store as there were no breeders in my area, but my Gecko doesn't seem to have any health issues at all and she is settling in nicely. I want to work out a feeding schedule with my gecko and so far, feeding her every other day seems to work out nicely and she eats a good share of live insects! My question is, could anyone give me their best guess as to how old my gecko is? The pet store had no idea and I just want to make sure my feeding schedule corresponds well to the gecko's age, as I know the younger geckos will need to be fed more often than an adult. I know it's hard to know the age so any best guesses would be great as again, this is my first gecko and I have nothing to compare it too. Thanks!

    *Set her on my son's bed for the picture. I use reptile carpet as a substrate.

    If I had to guess, I'd say a couple months but then again it's hard to tell with Leo's, depending on how much she eats, right temp. For digestion, and nutrition, but I've seen 5 month old geckos look a year, just depends. And she'll know when she's full, you can feed her everyday until she stops, I keep a constant bowl of super worms constantly untill its close to being empty, then I re fill it, good luck

    If it's walking around and climbing confidently it's most likely healthy too/the age it looks, around 5 months c:

    Oh yes, she is really active and curious. Thank you for the guess in age!
