i just got my gecko Saturday, i have a 10 gallon with a tree and lot of leaf plats for burny to hide in. i am overly paranoid about my animals so sorry. my burny has been good i took out for the first time to feed 3 small crickets. and was well behaved. jumped to my shoulder and perched on me till i brought back into tank. a guide i read said to not take out more than 5 min a day for first week. for my bearded dragons i took them out a lot as hatchlings and still to this day. should i be more active in handling burny?
how do you tell if your gecko is not eating, i notice his gecko diet has lines in it as if something is lapping it up ( i stir it till when thick it leaves a spiral design , i used this trick on another animal so i figured it would work the same)
anyway has eaten 3 crickets, and just hangs in the tank all day so far, is active and moving a bit in day, but at night he watches all that happens in the house from the glass room(they are connected and has a glass door so easy visibility )
has fresh water and gecko diet (raphsy) daily.
i herd baby food can be addictive to them due to the sugars so i wasnt going that route. just water and diet.
when will i be able to sex the gecko? what is its growth rate in size?
