That poor little gecko.

Impacted and full of sand - and dying of calcium deficiency to boot.

Guess Calci-Sand isn't that digestible.

i read some of the comments people made on you tube and the pet shop owner that took him in said that the vet couldnt do anything for him, he said there was a op that could maybe sort the impaction but would most likly leave him not being able to digest his food anymore. so the pet shop owner just thought it was best to see what happend and then he died a few days later.

Fortunately I dont think a lizard has evolved a level of consiousness to the same degree of a human, and so I dont think It would have suffered as much as some people may think...pain wouldnt be as emotionaly disturbing to a gecko.

Its still no excuse to allow it to get into that condition though, some people are simply stupid.
