    Default Gecko Shaking Legs


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all,

    today after feeding I noticed my gecko started shaking its legs, mostly when walking slow:

    This is a second longer video, which the forum won't let me attach: vimeo . com/ 523518433

    Here are a few pics as well:


    Age is between 5-8 months.
    Diet: 2-3 Dubias and 1-2 mealworms every other day + 1 morio per week (only last week ). All are dusted with DRAGOVIT Calc + D3 and ExoTerra Multivitamins once every other week.








    Should I be worried?

    Thanks!


    EDIT: For some reason I cannot see my first video as well, here is a link: vimeo . com/ 523517897 (please remove spaces to see it)

    I was able to see both videos. Have you checked the bottom of the gecko's feet? I say this because it didn't look to me as if the legs were shaking, but more like the gecko would put its feet down somewhere and then not like the way the surface felt so it would pick up its feet again. I have a gecko with a minor sore on his foot and if I've messed with it, when I put him back down, he'll pick up his feet and put them down again just like yours. Even if you don't find anything on its feet, there may be some discomfort with the surface for some reason. The good news is that your gecko is holding his weight up well, and climbing with good control over all sorts of surfaces.

    Thank you for the reply!
    I checked the feet, they look normal to me. A couple a days ago I changed the paper towels with a different brand (thicker/softer), prolly doesn't like the new feel .

    I will wait couple of days if this persists, will try with TP to see if there is any difference.

    If you use toilet paper, he'll probably slide around every time he takes a step and that may not make him too happy either!
