    Default Dropped Tails- Gehyra


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hullo... does anybody know if Gehyra vorax or Gehyra marginata / halmahera geckos / giant pacific geckos can drop their tails? I know they can slough their skin, but I can't find any definitive answer online about whether they drop their tails.

    Yes, they can drop their tails, and they'll regrow. One of mine dropped it for unknown reasons, it was just gone one morning. Since she lived alone, it couldn't have been a fight, so I suspect something startled her.

    The tail drop and regrowth is also mentioned in the care sheet written up by thorrshamri:
