Today I was given a crested gecko for free and he seems to have a large hunch on his back. I think it might be MBD. The previous owner was unable to feed it properly due to extenuating circumstances. It ate some baby food (that was all I had to give it, yes I know it’s not good) but it seemed to have trouble swallowing. It’s fine now, but I’m worried about the hunch and what I’m going to feed it. The previous owner said that the only thing that they were able to get it to eat was crickets so I plan on getting some of those. I also hope to order some Pangaea but I have no idea when I’ll be able to or when it will come in. Anyone have any ideas on what I can feed it in the meantime? I might be able to try baby food again if I make sure it eats slower. Any ideas?
This is the first DIY I’ve ever done and IT LOOKS SO GOOD IM SO PROUD OF MYSELF
DIY crested gecko tub!
It’s a small 27 quart tub, with a screen on the front and holes in the side. I EVEN MADE MY OWN DISH HOLDER! I made the dish holder out of the square plastic piece that came out when I melted a hole for the screen. I figured with all the plants Mochi might have a hard time finding his food if it was just on the ground, so I thought I’d put it up somewhere higher.
This was super easy and cheap and fun to make and I’ll definitely be doing the same thing for my next crested gecko!
