    Exclamation My flying gecko wont eat anything


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey guys!

    I am new here and seeking advice and help on feeding my flying gecko. I got her about two months ago from a reptile show, they told us they didnt know her sex, then she laid eggs the morning we took her home. The eggs were not viable, unfortunately.

    My geck is in a 30 gallon tall bioactive enclosure. She has been pooping and drinking water regularly but her food bowl remains untouched. We are unsure if she has taken food little by little at certain points. She is getting thinner and we just are out of ideas to have her eat. As of now we have offered her small dubias and meal worms (with calcium and vitamin supplements).

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    Your flying gecko could be sick. Do you know whether she was wild caught or captive bred? Have you ever checked her skin for bright reddish orange mites? Let me know. I'll let you know how to safely remove those pesky mites.

    Please share a better picture. Try handfeeding her undusted crickets.

    I have a captive hatched flying gecko who is 17.5 years old! Here she is at 16 months old at a reptile show. She's doing fine on mostly undusted crickets. Maybe that's because I feed her crickets Zoo Med's finely ground Natural ADULT Bearded Dragon Food 24/7?

    I am pretty sure she was captive bred, though I am not certain. She doesn't have mites. She is very skittish with people so we haven't tried handfeeding very much but we were told she was eating dubias before we got her. We will try crickets though. We are worried about how thin she is. I'm attaching a photo for reference. She's on the ground of her enclosure and blends in fairly well but you can see her once you find her lol.

    Please offer undusted & dusted crickets to her ASAP.

    What exact products have you been dusting with?

    I'm out of town currently with a pet sitter with her. I will have them offer crickets but I am unsure the brand we use. I think it was repticalcium but could be mistaken. Thank you so much
