So I think Alcatraz has some retained shed on his toes. I noticed it mostly because he's not really climbing up the surfaces as well as he should be. I know somethings to try are little shed boxes or whatnot, but since it's only on his toes (everywhere else is shed and healthy, and it's not even covering/constricting his toes, it just looks like it's on the bottom of his toes), I thought maybe just soaking him in some warm water would help; it's what I'm trying right now. Is this right?
In other news, he's doing fantastic He's turning out to be such a goofy and calm gecko. While inspecting his toes, he let me just hold him and mess with his toes to look at them, and just sat there. Right now he's just sitting in the water, completely unfazed (he had a moment for a second, but calmed down really quick). I'm so excited to see him as an adult. I can only assume he's eating since he's not dead yet, LOL! I see him everyday, so I don't notice his growth, but a friend, who hadn't seen him in a couple of weeks, said he had already grown some and gotten bigger.
He also likes to wrap his tail around my finger and hang upside (we keep him a few inches off our bed or the table or floor or wherever we're doing this, so in case he decides to drop down, he's not going to hurt himself). LOVES to jump! If given the chance to jump to my other hand or run up my arm and then onto my other hand, he picks jumping to my other hand every single time, so of course, we make sure any potential fall or miss doesn't end with him flying five feet to the floor.
So yeah, he's doing good This is really my only issue, is the shed on his toes, since he's not really sticking to surfaces like I know he should be. Just want to make sure I'm not harming him!
Also, it looks like we are starting to get some bulges! Hopefully! The area's not as flat anymore, so I'm keeping an eye out to make sure I'm not just wishfully hoping for things and that he really is turning out to be a male
And for those who don't know him, this is Alcatraz the day after I brought him home (he's been with us for a month now)
