Fancy a new pet?

I'm leaving the country soon and no one wants to look after my pet while im away so i have now got to do the worst thing and sell him.
so up for sale is "Mr Geko of Geko Land" (i thought it was a good name)

Mr geko is a leapord geko that is almost 2 years old, there is a 3ft long tank (two large sliding glass doors,)heating matt, light, water tray, sand, 2 peices of greenery, his ceramic home (looks like a log) and 2 peices of real wood that make a climbing/ tunnel for him.

i also might have some other bits and bobs to throw in like what i use to clean the tank (which i do once a month, so easy to care for), some multi vit powder, and if bought soon enough whats left of his crickets/ wax worms.

basicly its cost me close to £200 to set it all up so i know im not expecting that but Mr Geko himself is still worth £25 so decent offers would be good.

i live in Guildford so pickup would be nessercery but full details will be given later if interested.

thanks

We used to have a couple of bearded dragons, but had to give them up. Luckily there's a deicated breeder/keeper/seller of all things aquatic and paid a good price for them.

Doesn't help you I know, but good luck and hope Mr Geko gets a caring home!

I sent you a p/message when you first posted. :(
#4
can you post a picture of the gecko and the tank?

thanks,
antonis

sorry i didnt look at my pm
#6
Is there not a gecko rescue that would find him a new home?
#8
I run a cricket breeding farm, would he be a good guard pet to stop intruders? I am sick of all the toads and frogs finding their way in there. Do you think if I let him roam free within the secure compound he would scare them away and I would have a nice thriving cricket community?

Let me know.

Thanks.

Do Geko's not eat crickets? If so, I don't think he would be such a good guard dog on your cricket farm...!
#10
Yeah... they do eat crickets. :lol:
#11
Sold.
I'm picking him up tomorrow. :wink:

No not yet :wink:
My Daughter is a real Animal nut and she's been after one for years. It will be a 400 mile drive for me in total.:-(

I know, I could have bought one local cheaper but this one needs a new home.:wink:

Well done that man. :-)

At least my crickets can live in peace knowing that I am not going to throw a cricket eating dragon in there to keep 'em on their toes. :lol:

I sure will. :-P

Yay!! I've not had a gecko for a couple of years. I used to love how they could climb up glass...

Their feet don't have 'suckers' or anything, but the tread on their feet is so fine it can actually go between the tiny grain-lines on the glass, allowing them to run up it. Pretty cool.

Best of luck with him mate. :)
#19
Thanks Ducky.
They sound pretty interesting to watch. :)

Dino I was having a laugh mate, I could not sleep at night if I had loads of crickets close by.
#22
Nice pics Dino :) Just make sure none of the live crickets get loose indoors, they have an excellent way of hiding and surviving in the smallest of places lol
#23
The crickets used to drive me up the wall lol Can you feed Gekos locusts? They used to be a treat for the Bearded Dragons we had...
#24
Nice to see he's found a good, new home. :thumbsup:
#25
Hi Rayman,
The crickets make such a lot of noise we have them in the shed until feeding time;-) I cannot wait until they have all gone. Next time we are getting the quiet ones :lol:
I think he eats locusts but we will check first.
#26
Hi Emma,
Yes, he seems pretty happy. :thumbsup:
#27
Found on a website via Google which had quite a bit about Leopard Geckos (mainly where they come fro, colour, etc):

Leopard geckos eat crickets, kingworms, mealworms, waxworms, earthworms, grasshoppers, locusts and pinkies. Food should be supplemented with calcium and multivitamins. Wax worms are a good supplement or treat, but are too fatty and not nutritious enough for a regular diet.

I guess waxworms are like the fishing maggot thingies. Pinkies sounds pretty disgusting. :( Earthworms shouldn't be too hard to find though if he'll eat those. Good to vary his diet too. Best of luck. :)
#28
I've never heard of 'pinkies' but am I right in thinking they are baby mice?:shock:
Normal garden worms?? Ummmm we have loads of them :thumbsup:

Pinkies are baby mice, yeah. I was quite sickened to find out that my ducks quite liked them too. :(

#32

Great :thumbsup:

Am I right in thinking that they should NOT have a UV light? He came with one but after reading up on them, different sites say different things about the lighting. Some say a 'red' light is best?

Yeah, I think that's right. I'll ask my brother... he teaches about this kind of thing at a university, lol. :-D
#37
We had a UV light for the two Bearded Dragons, I would have thought it would be the same for Geko but you'd better make sure.
#38
Thanks Ducky :thumbsup:
#39
Geckos dont need uv lights as they are nocturnal, so they dont see the sun.

This all sounds like a drug deal going on in code !!!
