    I usually start handling once the gecko is reliably eating. Not everyone would do it that way.

    I have had quite a number of geckos that have that body type. In my opinion, 53 grams is not that heavy at all. Many of my geckos have been in the 80-100gram range and none of them are giants. I...

    In my opinion, the best way to check this with the vet is to act as if you're the one who's confused:
    "I'm just checking that it's 1 Ml of panacur for a 17 gram gecko and not 0.1Ml".

    Good luck...

    Is that 83 in the air or 83 on the floor? it's a little low for floor temp (low 90's is recommended) and a little high (in my opinion) for consistent air temp. I'm not saying that's why he's...

    You probably won't end up with them for the most part. Most bioactive terrariums have isopods (also called "roly-poly's" or "pill bugs") that have to be purchased or found outside as well as tiny...

    I think she has a bit of shed stuck on the tips of the toes. Either soak her in 1/2" of warm water in the sink or spray some water on her feet and then dig in and pull it off. I find that q-tips...

    If it's too hot, they will probably move out of the heat. Otherwise, if you layer some things on top of the hot side, like tiles (but make sure not to stack in such a way that they can fall over on...

    The black spots indicate that it's not an albino and the solid eyes indicates that it's either a super snow, an eclipse or both. My money is on super snow, though there's not as much black/white...

    The UTH should be on all the time (unless the thermostat turns it off), but I also find tile to be a great substrate and no problem with the heating.

    It's hard to tell. It's a small picture and taken at an angle. Are the tail spots black or not? There's a good chance that it's an albino if the tail spots are beige and also a good chance it's a...

    It's a hypo because it has fewer than 10 body spots. It's got enough orange coloring to consider it a tangerine and it may or may not have enough orange on the tail to be considered a carrot tail.

    I don't see any bulges so I'm guessing female. Sometimes females have V shaped pores like males, but instead of the pores being real holes, they're more like shallow pits.
    Also, the first one is...

    If the mother was a super snow then this one is also a snow, but not a super. It's an albino, so I assume it's a Bell. If it has solid eyes then it has the eclipse trait. So with solid eyes I...
