    Default Floppy Tail???

    In crested ladies website it said that floppy tail is caused when they hang upside down on the glass. My Guys almost always sleep on the glass, and some times upside down. I was wondering if its the tail goin stait over their back that never happens to mine. Their tails always just curl down beside them and often meets at their nose. Is that what causes floppytail or is it more the tail doing straight down their back.

    Floppy tail can be identified by the tail hanging at a 90 degree angle to the body and a kink or a sharp curve at the tails base. It sounds like your geckos don't have any problems with floppy tail .
