Eleven

Return to Rescue Animals

Under Quarantine…

Eleven is a new intake and recovering from veterinary treatment, so is currently in quarantine.

Eleven is a young leopard gecko of around 6 months old, they are currently too small to sex. They were surrendered to us after being abandoned with an ex-partner who was not equipped to care for them.

Their previous enclosure was a 2.5ft vivarium with paper towel and slate as substrate. They had an overhead heat bulb and various hides and were fed on crickets.

Eleven arrived underweight and dehydrated with a broken tail. There was an open wound at the site of the break. After visiting the vet, the tail was amputated, and they should make a full recovery. They are quite skittish to handle due to being young and unsocialised.

A cutie learning to trust again.


Care Requirements:

Eleven will need a 3ft vivarium as a minimum, to allow space to exercise and move around. An overhead heat source should be fitted with a suitable thermostat to maintain a warm-side temperature of 32-34C. The cool side should sit below 23-25C. A low-level UV bulb should be provided both for a day/night cycle and for UV – 5-7% ideally. Eleven should be fed 3 times per week using a range of live insect feeders, such as crickets, locusts and dubia roaches. These should be dusted with calcium and a calcium with Vitamin D3 powder alternatively.
