    Default Leopard Gecko normal behaviour?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everyone,

    Right I know I'm new to the site but I have a couple of questions about my baby's behaviour. I have a male leopard gecko who is nearly a year old.

    Recently I moved him to a new house, same viv just new position. He has started scratching at the vents and glass sliding doors. He also flattens himself to the floor outside his hide which is unusual behaviour for him.

    My questions; are these normal behaviours for leopard geckos?

    Thanks for your tolerance of me and hope to find out that I'm unnecessarily worrying!

    I do know that Leoprad geckos do "Flatten" there belly's on the ground to absorb heat.

    Hello,

    As for the scratching at the glass and vents it make just be your gecko is feeling a little stressed from the change. Just make sure that the temps have not become a problem from the change of location.
    Currently keeping:

    Eublepharis gecko 2.1.0~Hemitheconyx gecko 1.0.0~Gekko gecko 1.0.0~Pogana Vitticeps 1.0.0~Varanus exanthematicus 1.1.0~Varanus acanthurus 1.0.0~Blue Tongue Skink 1.0.0~Red-eared slider 1.0.0

    Reptiles I have rehabilitated, rehomed or kept.
    All above species plus:


    Phelsuma Grandis~Rhacodactylus ciliatus~Paroedura~Rhacodactylus auriculatus ~Hemidactylus frenatus~Iguana~Turtles ~Snakes and too many more to name!
