    What is the temperament of Eublepharis hardwickii like, compared to the standard leopard gecko?

    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...

    Yes, I do.
    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...

    Mourning geckos readily eat prepared diets such as Pangea, but they really seem to do better with more insects in their diet. Culturing flightless fruit flies is one option, but if you don't want to...

    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.

    I make feeding dishes out of white deli cups. I leave the lid on, but cut out most of the top, creating a lip which minimizes escapes. It holds dubia and superworms pretty well, but crickets just hop...

    The smallest gecko species I keep are Mourning geckos, however the neonates are pretty tiny, so hopefully my experience will be relevant.
    I feed the little ones primarily fruit flies, bean beetles,...

    Is the tail still thick? Is it defecating normally?
    If not, it may be constipated or impacted.

    I use chick starter. It's inexpensive, and available at any farm store.
    It's nutritious, too; I've had the same mealworm colony going on it since 1997.

    It does look like an interesting concept. For some reason they look flimsy, though. I don't think I'd ever buy without seeing them in person.
