Return to Rescue Animals
Hiccup is a new intake, so is still in quarantine.
Hiccup is an adult, female crested gecko. She was surrendered as her previous keeper no longer had the space to continue caring for her, due to a change in family circumstances.
She was kept in a converted cabinet of adequate size, with overhead heat. She was fed a powdered crestie diet and occasional live insects. We don’t know anything else about her circumstances.
Hiccup is in good health, other than being slightly dehydrated when she first arrived. She is friendly and docile to handle and would be a perfect first family reptile.
Will be a great first reptile.
Hiccup will need a glass enclosure that is a minimum of 60cmx45cmx45cm (HxWxD), such as an Exo Terra. They will need an overhead basking bulb to maintain a hot side temperature of 28-30C and a low-level UVB bulb (10%). These work best in an Exo Terra canopy of the appropriate size on top of the mesh lid of the enclosure. They require a soil substrate and misting twice daily to hold humidity, as well as lots of decor and hiding places in the upper half of the enclosure (as they are terrestrial). They should be fed a powdered crestie diet (such as Repashy or Pangea) every other day and live insects once a week.
