  • Devastated - lost Gabe

    Gabriel fell & had suffered a probable dislocated hip last night & died overnight prior to being able to reach the vet. I am just devastated beyond belief right now.



    He fathered 1.1 babies & had 7 fertile eggs incubating at his time of death.

    RIP my handsome Gabe

          Awwww, I am so sorry!
          He sure was amazingly beautiful!! I am happy to see you have eggs
          Nonetheless, the loss of an animal is never easy.

            I'm so sorry for your loss. He's a beautiful animal and I hope you have many great memories to get you through.
            My fingers are crossed that maybe one of the eggs will hatch out a mini version of him for you to keep.

                  I'm sorry for your loss, he was stunning. May you find some solace in the genes he passed along to his offspring.

                    Thanks guys! It's so hard going into gecko room & not seeing him. I was going through all the photos I've taken of him & just realized that he has a face on his head, just like both his little babies....just a little something he past on to his offspring to be remembered by.

                          Thanks! His first son, SG1, is looking more & more like a Gabe Jr with each shed.

                              He was a beautiful gecko and i know how hard it is to loose someone you love so much. I'm so sorry. And yes my geckos are little people with scales as i think everyone on here would agree. I hope you keep one of his baby's so you can still have a little piece of him around .
