Well said Fazer & Purejurassic!

Why people get any animal without reading up on them first, but especially something specialist like reptiles, is beyond me :cry:

I'm thinking of getting some cresties in the future, but I won't be doing it until I feel confident that I can give them the best possible care!

It's not fair on the animal. I know leos are hardy, but that is no excuse!

People who sell reptiles should give potential buyers a questionnaire or 'grilling' to see if they know what they are doing and what they are letting themselves in for! :naughty: That way you can be safe in the knowledge that the reptile will be cared for properly.

The point of being a responsible owner is to ensure that those under your care are not suffering in any way and have the best possible life. By buying a Gecko with no knowledge on how to keep it safe and healthy you are not doing this.

I'm hoping you've now read up on what you need to do and at worst initially keep it in temps similar to the beardie which would mean it was a bit hot until you sorted yourself out.

One last point, it you respond to criticism like that in real life it will be very painful and short life indeed.

Ok, so you say you already have reptiles.

You come on here and tell us you gone and got another without knowing anything about it, and, by implication, that you havent bothered trying to look it up, rather thought you would let us do all the hard work for you.

Then , when we point out the error of your ways (which many of us are qualified to do since we rescue and rehome sick and dying animals from keepers who dont keep them correctly ) you come back 3 days later blasting us ! :evil:

And you still havent told us what species of gecko you have. How on earth do you hope for advice, its like asking what fuel to put in your car?

And to add insult, you use caps and yell and curse us.

Not the way to make friends on any forum.

<<<Sits back , lights a ciggie, and waits for my ears and eyes to be abused by what appears to be some cocky teenager who thinks the world owes him/her. >>>
