  • What to do???

    So there is a petco next to where were staying in LA. Of course I had to check it out and they have 2 females housed with 4 males. All of them have wavy tails so they obviously need calcium. I want to take the one female out, she looks like she may gravid and I feel the need to rescue her. But how can I leave the other female in there with all those males.
    What do I do? Do I take them both I have no more room, but I guess I can house the two together.
    Dont know what to do!

    No matter what you do, you should at least talk to a manager and try to "educate" them in crested gecko care. They may not listen but at least you tried.

          If I get geckos together I often house them together. Get the two girls.

              Buying those geckos just gives the store more reason to supply more cresteds which in turn will be neglected in some form or another.

                I know, but I dont think this store sells many bc all of the ones they have look like theyve been there a while they are all adults and this particular store is pretty gross. I dont know, I see what your saying but I still cant leave them there poor things.

                    I've gotten animals by saying that they have no right to sell and animal in that kind of condition. If there willing to corrent there error then they will more than likely hand the geckos over.

                      I just bought a crested from a local petco, they discounted the price because of its condition. I had talked with the manager 3 times before this hoping he would help the crestie but after 2 months of watching this thing slowly die I decided to just spend the money and deal with it.

                      It is in about the same shape as the ones you are talking about. It was in a cage with 4 males, but luckly not gravid. If you have any questoins on rehab you can go ahead and pm me. At this point I have 5 rescues so getting pretty good at getting them to bounce back.

                        I know you feel the need to take them out of the situation. I would too. Just do the future animals a favor and find a manager to talk to. Do not leave until you are able to talk to one. Then send a letter to their corporate office.
                        Otherwise they will continue to make this mistake.
                        Good luck with what you decide!

                          Let us know how your trip there goes. Hopefully a manager or someone will listen to you. If you do end up with some, take pictures and keep us updated on how they are doing.

                            As sad as it is to see geckos like this in bad shape all your doing buy "rescuing" them is supporting there bad care/husbandry of these animals.If you buy them they will just replace them with new ones and the cycle will continue.Your best bet is to try and educate the owners on proper methods and if that doesn't work there's nothing you can do.I would like to see pet stores in the USA require permits for caring for animals properly.In some countries you must have one and if you are caught not treating the animals properly you will loose your business!

                              But also if they die there the store will probably just replace them. And if you buy them they will probably replace them. I would just buy them. They will get replaced either way at the store. We like to think that buying them makes the store replace but the store doesn't care why or if they die EITHER WAY they will replace them.
