    Default Gecko seems to be dying


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Little gecko fell of the ceiling on me and then on a floor. I was very shocked but decided to look at him closly but then I found out that he seems to be pretending to be dead! He was lying on his back. I turned him but his back legs look so weak, like he cannot use them. He twitches hardly whenever I touch him. I found out that it can be herp spinal injury. Shall I leave him alone or do I need to feed him somehow. He does not try to escape from my balcony for the second evening. I am rrally worried, how can I help him?

    If he is dying suffering will be better just to kill him or he has a chance to recover. You see I am leaving the place I found him, so I would not be able to look after him for long.

    Are there pet stores or zoos in Thailand that might have contacts to people who may care for geckos?

    This island is a nature reserve, so i does not have Zoos. The only thing I can do is to buy insects for him and provide protection and water

    I imagine that geckos would need help from humans to rehab them first.

    Maybe the lodging where you're staying could recommend a family to help this gecko?

    These are wild geckos, they are everywhere on this island, so noone would take a wild creature to look for. Thai people here can barely understand english! This is the same as to ask a 10 year old to look after a mouse in a random housr
