    Just cut a piece of bamboo to size and jam it in there. No silicone or suction cups needed. If it's a bit off in size, it will be at a slight angle from the horizontal. Just don't cut it too...

    It's worthwhile considering whether it's too hot on the perch under the basking light or whether there's some other reason he's not spending more time on that perch. It may be worthwhile adding a...

    It's not in the usual diet and will most likely just pass through the system. No problem.

    Welcome! As far as I can tell from the picture (you may want to send another closeup if possible) this is not an AFT (African Fat Tail) gecko, but rather a leopard gecko. Based on its color it's an...

    I would call her a super hypo (you're right, no body spots), tangerine (good orange color), carrot tail - barely -, baldie (no head spots). Nice looking gecko!

    Enigmas usually hatch with a few blobby spots on head and body. This one is not an enigma. It looks like a gecko that just didn't get many of the parents' genetic "goodies". The coloring does have...

    I assume this is an albino as well. Sometimes the red eyes in albinos doesn't look red. You can shine a flashlight behind the eyes (so the light reflects off the eyes from behind) and will likely...

    I recommend you hold off and monitor his weight. I have a number of crested and gargoyle geckos that I almost never see eating but they are large and healthy.

    THere's a limit about how much you can change some of these geckos. Here's an article about a gecko that I had (he has since passed away unfortunately) that had a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde personality:

    Put it on the mesh. I like the ESU or Zilla thermostat which is not too expensive and has been working well for me for over 10 years. Consult Arcadia about distance for desired heat and UV (most of...

    If you can actually see a piece of shed near the eye (my old eyes don't see anything), use tweezers to remove it. Sometimes humidifying doesn't do anything if it's a little stuck piece.

    The only way to know what strain of albino you have is to take your best guess, breed it with another gecko of that strain and see what you get. If you get albinos, you now know what strain your...

    I'll tell you honestly that when I pick up my geckos I do it in such a way that they can't really jump off. I cradle them in one hand and put my other hand over it so they're in a little cave. ...

    Definitely on the mend. It shows that for some geckos, even if it looks like a lost cause, it's worth a try.

    I have very rarely had a gecko that would walk onto my hand to be held. With the hundreds of geckos I've owned and bred, I find that most juveniles are skittish and tend to calm down as they mature....

    You can call it an "aberrant" because it has broken bands on the body but not on the tail. It's losing its spots. If it loses all the spots it will be a superhypo and if it retains 10 or fewer...
