I no longer have time for gizmo any more. He needs someone to hold him everyday and a loving home.
He come with viv, heat mat, light, themometer, water dish and hiding hole.
I also have some crickets(his favorite food).
I am located in colchetser.

I don;t think you'll have any luck getting someone to take him and pay for the privilege, usually unwanted pets are given away fro free - after all, you're asking someone to relieve you of your responsibilities.

Just in case you think I'm trying to get something for nothing, I'm not interested, I had a leopard gecko a few years ago and gave it to a friend cos the kids refused to feed the thing, and I couldn't cope with live crickets and worms, ewwwww

I've got a Berber Skink called Gizzy (or gigi) he's so affectionate and loves cuddling up around my shoulders. I buy the live feed but get my OH to put them in his den for him.
Would take him in but sadly have no space for any more.
Good luck tho.

Before we all break out in communal "awwwws", we should note that the OP wants £50 from that 'good home'! No offence montanafish, just trying to inject a dose of reality! Are you willing to find him a good home for less..?

I dont want the gecko to go to a bad home. People willing to pay usually want them and not get them just because there free.

Think if it was given away for free may be a way of attracting someone who would take it on without knowing how to care for it. By paying you have a better chance of finding someone who really wants and can perhaps take good care of it.

do you have a picture of it?

Yes, quite. And people who are concerned about getting an animal into a good home are usually not interested in getting cash! :thumbsup:

Im afraid my camera is busted. But he is about 4 -5 inchs green head white body and tail with hints of orange and purple with spots all over. He is very cute and is very tame.
#13
I think it's better to ask some money as otherwise you might attract the wrong type of person who just wants a freebie.
If they can't afford £50, then they can't afford vet bills etc.

no truer words spoken..
#15
How old is he, and what is the average life-span?

(p.s. I'm sure there must have been truer words spoken in the history of human speech!)
#16
Also, you could still choose to give it away for free, as long as they think they have to pay (if that makes sense)

Yes it does

It would cost alot more for a Gecko and all it's set up in a pet shop.
I would ask whoever takes it on for regular pictures of it to make sure it's happy and been taken care of, at least for the first few months anyway. If they say no then they have little compassion and understanding of the bonds people form with their pets, so I would turn them types away.
Search a few websites for caresheets too and print them off for new owner, then at least you know the owner will have some knowledge of how to look after it better.
#20
the vivariums and accessories arent cheap so i do think someone should pay for them,my son has been asking for a beardie for his birthday as his auntie has one,a shame u live in colchester.
good luck finding a new home for him
#21
i agree - the £50 seems a reasonable price to me, and if i wasnt over 300miles away i would, so hope you can find someone caring in the Essex area
#22
What type/size is the viv?
#23
viv is about 2 foot... just right for him at his age.. all exo terra extras
#24
would have taken him in a instance but unfortunatly im 2 hours away and no transport :-(
#25
Just tried persuading the missus but she's having none of it :x
#26
I'll give you £30.

My son's would love him!

I have experience of looking after snakes, lizards, tarantulas and other invertebrates. He will be well looked after.
#27
Are you close by would want you to come and visit first.
#28
I'm in Norwich, but my wife is travelling down to Colchester visiting her Dad next Monday.

#29

#30

banned#31

#32
