    Default paralized back legs

    My little baby had an accident where he was caught in the lid of a bin.
    Now his back legs are paralized. Does anyone have any experience with this? I dont know what to do for him and if he can have a life like this without the use of his back legs.

    I'd take him to the vet, find out if it's something that can be fixed or is permanent and go from there. Poor little guy, I'm sorry!

    Slinky, its time to take that gecko to a vet and get an x ray. If lucky, the damage isn't too severe and the gecko will hopefully recover. But at this point, it really has to be seen by a qualified reptile/exotics veterinarian.

    I'm sorry this happened, I really hope its nothing permanent and that the poor little guy recovers quickly.

    Opps... I assumed a vet visit was already in the works. I agree with everyone that is #1 priority.
