    Default Tips on catching small, fast geckos?

    I have a couple of adult mourning geckos who are VERY fast that I need to pack up. I'm super scared they will get loose when I go to wrangle them up. Any tips on how to go about this with a bioactive cage? (i.e. I can't remove everything). Maybe a net at the top and herd them from the bottom?

    If you can get in from the front, try scooping them up in shot glasses or those small plastic feeding cups. Good luck. At least you don't have to worry if you're picking out males or females!

    Haha thanks, I had one ready in case I needed it. I eventually had to take out the bromeliad and a few extraneous things to get them. They both ran out the front door and thankfully they each stopped long enough for me to cup my hand around them! Buggers are like rockets.

    I have a Sphaerodactylus macrolepis and a fairly tiny Cuban brown anole (not in the same enclosure) and am dreading having to move them if I ever do!
