  • Skittish Gecko

    I have had my crested gecko for about 8 years now and he was always very docile and easy to handle. I had him in a 12x12x18 tank but the top began to rust so I decided if I was going to get a new tank I may as well get him a larger one. He is now in a 18x18x24 exo terra with plenty of hiding spots and the temperature is around 76 degrees. After moving him he has become extremely skittish and tries to escape his tank if I try to handle him. I left him alone for about 3 weeks and the problem is still happening. Does anyone know what I could do to re-tame my gecko or if there is something I should be doing? He still eats fine and is active at night but I can't even get close to him without him running around the tank. Thanks for any help!
