Well we got our new crestie on Wednesday and he is just soo lovely. However I have a couple of comments/questions. First so you get a background, he is a sub adult male, about 3-4 inches long. He lost his tail prior to us owning him but it has all completely healed. He is in a vertical standing 20 gallon glass tank with peat moss substrate, branches, plants, hiding place. Temps during the day are around 76 and at night about 62-65.
1. He seems very inactive. I know he is possibly just getting used to his new home so I am not really worried yet but if I take him out of the tank he runs around on me and leaps about the couch - the second I put him back in the tank he just stays in whatever position I put him back in for hours and I mean exatly the same position. Is it quite common for them to be this inactive or is he stressed or too hot or too cold?
2. His "sticky" feet don't seem very sticky. He is fine climbing the branches and certain things in his tank but he was trying to climb the glass the other day and slid right off. When walking up my arm and stuff again he just slides right off.
3. I read that fruit baby food is good for them. I noticed the other day that all fruit baby food in the supermarket is blended with rice. Is this bad for them? Can you get just pure fruit baby food or should I just stick to mashed fruit.
Sorry for the long message with lots of questions. I did do my research before buying but as always in these situations, once you actually have the guy in your home there are so many more questions arise.
Thanks in advance for any help.
