    I am a high school science teacher that was gifted a pair of day geckos last week. Is something wrong with the anal pores? Are they just clogged so a good soak is in order, or is it something more serious?

    Thanks for the advice!

    I wish that I could help, it is clearly a male, but the staining confounds me. You could send a copy of the photo to Twin city Reptiles for their opinion, Twin Cities Reptiles - The largest reptile specialty store in Minnesota since 1978.

    Another post brings up a similar issue, it seems that males secrete a waxy substance from the pores to mark territory

    The anal pores have stuck shed. If at all possible, use a tweezers to pull it out. A warm soak first wouldn't hurt either.
