My baby crested gecko enjoying her new five gallon tank.
A closer photo of the baby crested gecko on her home made hide.
And a close up of her laying down her head that day.
I took this photo a month after I purchased this baby gecko, it was much smaller the day I got it, and by the time I got it eating good and settled down in the five gallon tank after I acclimated it the gecko was a little larger by then.
To give you an idea of just how small she was still yet, the cardboard object she is standing on is one half of a side of the cardboard center that is in a roll of toilet paper, she was no more than around 3 inches in length when I brought her home.
I always like too acclimate my animals for a while before I do much handling them, I find that it helps them to settle in first and the faster that they settle in is the faster they will begin eating.
It always a good thing too just supply them with everything that they possibly need and just leave them alone for a while before you begin handling them a lot and just keep a check on how they are doing daily health wise, "yes, I know that is hard too do:)", but just remind yourself that it's best for your' animal.
They are two things to always remember when dealing with any reptile and that is if it is not eating then their are only two different reasons that can be causing this to happen.
1: It is sick. 2: It is stressed.
The sooner you figure out which problem you are dealing with is the better chance you have at saving your' animal, be sure too drop back in at Howard's Geckos for more posts.
