House Geckos's Info...

House Geckos's Story...
WildRescue recently rescued over 1,000 animals from the raid on US Global Exotics. As a result, all of these animals are now adoptable to you!

We have 10 house geckos up for adoption. These are small but beautiful geckos, and they make wonderful terrarium-dwelling companions. They have gentle personalities and don't mind being held for show (if you can catch them!), but they are not the type of pet that will sit on your shoulder and hang out with you. They'll need to spend most of their time in a nice, big terrarium. We recommend a minimum of a 10 gallon terrarium for these geckos, but the bigger (and taller) the better. Depending on the size of their enclosure you can house a few of these guys together if you'd like. Suitable tankmates include anoles and long tailed grass lizards.

An appropriate environment setup for anoles would include plenty of hiding spots and branches to climb on to mimic a tropical to semi-tropical region. They should have about 60-70% humidity in their tank. Their diet should consist primarily of gut-loaded small crickets, but they will also eat mealworms, small silkworms and other small insects. The insects will need to be dusted with a multi-vitamin/calcium supplement. As a general rule, geckos can only eat an insect if it is the same size or smaller as the distance between the gecko's eyes.

Their enclosure should be spot cleaned daily, with a more thorough cleaning every month or two. A 5% bleach solution is an excellent disinfectant, and white vinegar on a warm, wet washcloth is a perfect nontoxic cleaner. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the enclosure before replacing the substrate and placing the gecko back in the enclosure. Geckos generally do not drink from standing water which is why it is vitally important that the enclosure be misted daily. Geckos will drink from the water drops that form on the cage ornaments. An aquarium bubbler can also be used in a shallow water dish to simulate moving water to encourage the gecko to drink from the bowl.

If you have further questions or are interested in adopting a house gecko, please email us at wildrescuetexas@gmail.com . The adoption fee for each gecko is $5. Please consider adoption first before buying animals from pet stores.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

House Geckos, a Lewisville Gecko was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Gecko for sale in Lewisville, or seeking a Gecko from a breeder in Lewisville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lewisville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lewisville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Gecko breeders who help with Gecko rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lewisville paves the way for another one to be saved.
