Quarantine

Getting in a new gecko is really exciting especially if you where waiting after these winter holds! But its really important to remember to quarantine any animal(s) that come in. Even if you trust the breeders, know the breeders, or even if the breeder is your own personal friend, it just makes sense to wait and see if the gecko is healthy before you place it into the rest of your colony. Shipping can stress out your gecko as well as it being in a new and strange environment and cause issues that it may not have had before it got to your door.


How long should you quarantine for? I have read a range of 30 - 90 days. I myself use to do 30 days if the gecko seems healthy, but I would recommend at least 60. This should give you enough time to see if there is any problems with appetite , weight loss, worms, or shedding. It may seem like a long time but it is best to avoid issues that could stem to the rest of your colony costing more time and money.
