In Reply to: Here's one of our juvies' cages.... posted by gexfiles on November 02, 2002 at 20:32:32:

NO SUBSTRATE?!?!?! So raise them in plastic containers with no substrate so that when you water them all there is at the bottom is fecal matter, dead crickets, and possible subsequent bacterial infection from stagnant water? Are they cleaned twice a day or at the very least once a day? I am surprised you don't even give them a papertowel to absorb some of the excess moisture. You know I've bred cresteds too. I give my babies a minimum of a papertowel substrate, and they've also been raised on mulch with no problems. Sorry if I seem like I'm being harsh, but your method sounds like a bacterial infection waiting to happen with as much moisture appears to be in your cages from the picture. Also, your not worried about possible snout damage from the geckos colliding with a bare cage floor when going after crickets?

And Trace, since when did YOU of all people start keeping geckos in RUBBERMAIDS??? LOL Weren't you the plastic box queen for a while? ;)

Man, I come here for the first time in a while and everything's all topsy-turvy!
