    Default Changing Husbandry for Rescue Leopard Gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi everyone! I recently adopted a rescue leopard gecko who was found severely malnourished in a soccer field. Thankfully, the woman I got him from took him in and took care of him. She wasn't planning on keeping him for long since his tank setup is pretty much the bare minimum. Now that he's mine and I've got him healthy again, I want to spoil him! I've tried adding a few new items into his tank here and there, but he acts differently once they're in his space. He's super curious for the first few minutes, but then he proceeds to not poop for a few days, an indicator to me that he doesn't like the change. How can I slowly integrate new decor into his tank without making him feel uncomfortable with the change? Thanks!!

    Most geckos react to new things. I think it's worthwhile to put up with a few days of not pooping to provide something for him to be possibly curious about.
