Unhappy lost phelsuma

dont believe everything you readon the net.
my prized and loved first phelsuma a standingii at 7 inch.
loved that gecko.
anyway, shew was in a 3x3x3ft convertef fishtank with lotsw of airholes in the lid. many many people told me to cover half the tank with mesh.
came home today after work to find it'd broke/bitten through the mesh.
Fkin nice one.

thanks
i have (and still am) looking everywhere in my room for him. i 'live' in the cellar, so my room is pretty big. ive even looked inbetween the blinds for my windows, but deep down i know im never going to see her again. she was my first non-beginner gecko, as ive not kept herps for 4/5 years..this is quite a blow. dosn't even make me feel good anymore knowing ive got a xanthic pictus coming this week.

We recently had an 8 inch scorpion escape, we were advised that because they like the warm, and drink a lot of water, we should leave out a big piece of paper, and sprinkle sand, to establish where abouts it is hiding, he might just walk over in in search of water during the night and leave footprints, even better leave a basking light and keep checking throughout the evening, he might just decide he needs his home comforts All the best I know howe stressful it can be

Any warm places are worth checking... often behind fridges I have heard of people finding geckos.

As she's a day gecko maybe you will also be best looking in light places. Also, you could try putting her tank on the floor so it's easy for her to get back to, with the light on and food if you can manage it.

Sprinkling flour around on the floor can help with terestrial geckos, but I'm not so sure with arboreals, but maybe worth a try!

Fingers crossed.
