    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    We got a baby Gargoyle 3 weeks ago and I am SO worried about him. When we got him he was in a small container but the pet store people told us we could put him in his 18x18x24 terrarium right away and he would adjust. He was in there a week and I was hand feeding him every other day just fine and after about a week he started exploring his whole new home top and bottom but was not pooping at all. I contacted the breeder and she said weight him and put him back in his small container for now so I did. He weighed in at 5 grams. We put him back in the small container about 9 days ago and I stopped hand feeding him just started to put his pangea in a small lid with water around the rim every other night for him. He seems to have pooped once or twice in there in the last 9 days and ate 2 crickets 3 days ago however he seems MORE scared of me now than he was before we moved him back to the small container. I haven't tried to handle him at all accept one time 2 days ago to weight him and change his papertowel but I saw no poop and he ran from me. He is also still weighing in at 5 grams on the dot. I am just so worried. Not sure what to do. Temp and humidity are fine just not sure whats wrong.

    note: I moved this to the proper subforum, where it might get more traction.

    OK...3 weeks is no time at all for a gecko to adjust, especially if he's moved houses and been weighed and such. I would leave him alone as much as possible for at least 2 weeks and see how he does. also, if he's not really pooping you don't need to change the paper towel, right?

    also, can you post a pic of his little house? and what are the temps? when are you misting?
