    It looks like a healthy well-fed gecko who, hopefully, is getting calcium and vitamin D3 in addition to his mealworms. Sometimes they go on hunger strikes and they can last awhile. It's fine. Keep...

    I think the issue is more whether the gecko will pose any danger to the frogs and amphibians (I don't know a whole lot about frogs, but I would imagine that those large pacman frogs or tomato frogs...

    Mantids is worth a try. I have a lot of house spiders in my enclosures and they do quite well.

    Yes, I did mean those. Actually if you're willing to try other species and take the risk that they will be eaten, you could also try the aquatic species and see if the crested gecko poops in the...

    I think it's a pretty cool idea. I still think that small creatures that spend time on land could possibly end up being eaten, even if she hasn't shown interest to date. You could always do it and...

    The steadiness of the temperatures is pretty important. There are ways to make you own incubator and google should help you out there. The most important thing is to have the best thermostat you...

    It looks surprisingly good for all it's been through. I agree there's a pretty significant MBD (metabolic bone disease) but I think there could be a good chance for recovery or partial improvement. ...

    Pinheads may be way too small for it to catch. I'd go with at least 1/4" crickets.

    I imagine this is scary for your son and for the gecko. I would give it another day or two to come out on its own. After that, you could try to put a little mineral or olive oil in there to see if...

    We do have these discussions periodically. I'm not sure that even that size viv is big enough for more than 1 species. Even so, I have a feeling that the Vieillardis will become dinner to the...

    Give it some time to recover. Stressed geckos usually don't eat. Put a few drops of water on its nose (one at a time) and see if it will lick them up. There are a variety of home made and store...

    Just so you know, I believe another name for the dimming thermostat (now that you've clarified what you mean) is a proportional thermostat.

    I've thought about this a lot too, and I feel that the minimum size is 18x18x24, but yours is pretty close, so I think it's reasonable to go with it. You may decide that you want to give your gecko...

    Different people have different ways of doing things and more than one thing works. It's difficult when people tell you that you're doing it wrong because you're not doing it their way. The heat...

    What exactly do you mean by a dimming thermostat? If you mean a dimmer, where you set the power your heater is going to get to a certain percentage (like a light dimmer), you can get one cheaply at...

    The link isn't working. If you have only 1 gecko, I don't see any reason to get a misting system. A crested gecko really just needs to be misted every evening for a nighttime humidity spike which...

    There may not be anything wrong. Sometimes they just go through these not eating periods. The most important thing is that your basic husbandry is correct: floor temp on the hot side in the low...

    How long have you had the gecko? If you smear a little food on its nose it will probably lick it off. Start there and see if that works.

    You can try putting him in his humid hide if he'll let you. Most of my geckos don't shed in their humid hides so it's not required.
