A couple of days ago my 7 month old crested gecko climbed up my arm and onto my shoulder while I was standing up. He was preparing to jumped. From the ground to my shoulder is about 4'3" or even less because I reacted by moving down and tried to get him on my bed so I was kind of crouching.....but he didn't make it. :( My hands where busy with gecko supplies and he hit the carpet floor with a thump He landed on all fours and then bounced a little landing on his back and then re-flipped on to his front. I picked him up careful and everything seemed to be fine. He still moves around in his terrarium and climbs around, but could he still be hurt or have damage to anything? I know how hardy the little guys are, though how hardy and what can they take or not take?
They must jump off thing much higher in the wild, but I know sometimes they will jump blind and not care. Silly geckos. I hope he is fine

Well does anyone know for sure? Thanks.
