    :(

    My gecko might be on his death bed.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Why? Whats wrong with 'em?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Squashed by an insurance executive?

    Sorry to hear this fuzzbox, but how attached can one get to a lizard?
    The search for inner peace continues...

    He is uber skinny and I've noticed this for a while but his limbs are mest up like he is a paraplegic. I've had him for a while... It is really weird because I have another one who is a few years older and is fine. He outlived his mating partner.

    sorry, fuzzy. he's a cutie.

    Is there a good vet nearby you can take him to, just to be sure there's not something that can be done?

    Have you been dusting his food with calcium powder and reptile vitamins? also, have you been gut loading the crickets 24 hours before feeding them to your Gecko? I really can't tell to much from the pic but it looks like he may be missing a few toes, that and the lack of limb movement are sure signs of calcium and vitamin deficiency.

    I'd take him to the vet but I don't have that kind of money right now. As for the toes the shedding skin got stuck on the them and cut the circulation off. I'll do what I can for now though.

    You should soak the little guys in luke warm water when they shed, it makes the skin soft and easy to shed, if it still gets stuck you can use a pair of tweezers to remove the tough spots around the toes.
    You can save this little guy, you just have to keep up with the treatment as described.

    Yea, I knew that part I just found out about it after it was too late. I always try to keep it humid in there when they shed. As for the other parts I'll try my best.

    I'm sorry to hear about that bud. I hate when my pets get sick. One of the most awful feelings in the world.
