    Default First Mossy Gecko

    Hi just wanted to share a few pictures of my baby mossy gecko.
    I have named him/ her 'Oak'
    Super excited to see how he grows, he is my first mossy gecko.
    He's just been eating crickets but I was not fast enough to catch this on camera missed it every time!
    Sorry about photo quality.

    Very cute! I never heard of "mossy geckos", but I'm sure there are a lot I've never heard of! Congrats on your new baby.

    Photo quality is more than compensated by gecko cuteness :-).
    Baby chewies are just sooo adorable. And they seem to grow extremely fast.
    Congrats on your first chahoua!

    Thank you, here's hoping he grows nice & quick as I was advised that he was about 6 months but I think he is pretty small to me for that age, haven't had chance to weight him yet I'm saying he but I don't know yet. My Gargoyles are bigger at six months than he is, however my gargoyles are pretty big geckos! So far he's eating & pooping just fine & seems to be exploring his new viv quite well too.
    I am very quickly being drawn in by his cuteness & those little chunky looking legs. Thanks for your comments.

    Hi I have posted a few more pictures of Oak, promise to leave it a little while before i post any more. He or she is so photogenic I can't help it, shame about picture quality but that's my fault for using kindle to take photo of my photos on my phone!Name:  IMG_20170212_151621.jpg

    Good question the reptile centre were not sure if mainland or PI.
    However although he is still pretty tiny although growing quite rapidly he does seem to have to a white/pale coloured patch on the back of his neck so I wondered if this might be an indication that he was possibly PI.
    Can I ask what made you think he might be PI or are you just asking the question?
    Thanks.
