    Default Gecko taming


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I've had my gecko since April and we had been getting along fine, he would happily walk over my hands but unfortunately whenever I would take him out his tank he would try to run... my solution was to sit with him in the smallest and emptiest room I have so that he couldn't run off and hide anywhere. Unfortunately for the past few months I've been super busy with university and other things, of course I still feed him etc but just haven't had much handling time. This has resulted in him now associating me and my hands with food and whenever I'm in there feeding him with tweezers or doing something in his tank he gets very aggressive and tries to go for me. I have my holidays coming up soon so it would be a great time to rekindle our trust any guides on how to go about this? I'll admit I'm a little scared of him atm, obvs he can't hurt me but I still get a fright when he tries to bite any advice appreciated!!

    Hmm you might actually be on to something there though I'm yet to find that sweet spot. I'll try feed him till he's too lazy to attack tomorrow and report back!

    That's kinda what I was thinking, when they are full they aren't as interested in food so might be able to hold him for a couple mins each time an warm him back up to you.
