    If it's pooping, it isn't impacted.
    A winter slowdown is normal and expected. If the appetite drops off to nothing, increasing the heat is probably a good idea, but otherwise, all sounds normal.

    My son goes to school in nearby Kenosha, WI, so for as long as he's attending there, we will probably be going to the fall show.

    I was there too. Great little symposium, I hope it continues. I also brought my son, who enjoyed discussing his Coleonyx project with Nathan.

    Those are really nice geckos. They seem to have qualities of both leopards and fat tails.

    I suggest covering the screen 3/4 or so, and see what effect that has on the humidity.

    Here's what I do in this situation:
    First, put the gecko in a deli cup with wet paper towels. Leave it for a half hour or so. Don't forget the air holes!
    Then, gently peel off the loose skin-...

    Bigger is better. Just make sure that there are plenty of hiding places. That whole "large cages stress them out" is a newbie myth.

    Dump the insects in, let the gecko hunt.
    It's pretty common for them to take a few days before they will start eating.

    I would give it more time. The gecko knows how to eat, and it recognizes what you are giving it as a food item. There shouldn't be any need to overly coddle it in that regard. Ensure that the new...

    Small shallow bowls are best. Two bowls would evaporate as quickly as one, so that wouldn't solve your problem. You could slow evaporation by covering a portion of the enclosure. It would increase...

    It's normal for geckos to have a favorite place to sit. Nothing to worry about there.
    However I would suggest feeding a larger variety of foods. Mealworms are not the best choice. Crickets and dubia...

    They can eat bean beetles from the start. They are small, and I read somewhere that they are more nutritious than fruit flies.

    You don't even need a water dish. I don't use one for my Mourning geckos. Regular misting and keeping the humidity up is sufficient. I also make sure that they have prepared diet most nights, and I...

    If it were me, I would remove it from the current enclosure and keep it in a sterile environment until the nose heals. Dirt substrate, fecal matter, etc. can harbor bacteria which could lead to...

    Use a 32oz deli cup with tiny holes in the lid- the type that are used for culturing fruit flies. Put about a half cup of dried black eyed peas in. Add bean beetles. Top it off with a...

    Each is different. I work with several species of ground dwelling geckos. Some individuals defecate in a hide, some on top of the hide, and some simply use the far corner.
