  • Any ideas on how to keep geckos from hiding behind Exo Terra backgrounds?

    I know I'm probably just an overly paranoid person.. Since I'm not home often during the day I don't get to see my Phelsuma standingi aside from taking him out from behind the background on his terrarium. I find him there every morning, and I'm just hoping he's getting enough to eat between the supplement of the Repashy Day Gecko Diet, and the dusted crickets. Anyone have any good suggestions for keeping this little guy from getting back behind the background?? I'm thinking he might be squeezing through the bottom since he's currently on paper towel.


    Here's a picture just to show his size


    .. and another picture just because

    We use exo terra cages at the pet store I work at and our kingsnakes used to constantly hide behind the background.. I took some wet sphagnum and packed it all the way around the background then let it dry. So far that has worked at keeping them in the viewing area.. it might be worth a try with your geckos?

      Usually people shove eco earth along the edges of the background to create a barrier for the gecko. Since you're using paper towels though I would suggest bunching up paper towel wads and cramming it in the gaps along the background. It should prevent your gecko from squeezing itself back there
