Nemo

Return to Rescue Animals

Under Quarantine…

Nemo is currently recovering from explorative surgery, so is currently unavailable for adoption.

Nemo is a 2 year old, hypo-melanistic leopard gecko believed to be female. She was surrendered to us as her previous owner did not feel they had the time for her anymore.

She was kept in a 3ft wooden vivarium with a heat mat (but no thermostat), UVB lighting and reptile carpet. She was fed only mealworms and morio worms.

Nemo is a fussy eater and has also gained weight abnormally quickly since being with us, so has undergone explorative surgery and blood tests to determine the cause.

She is handleable and a very friendly gecko.

Lots of love and handling needed!


Care Requirements:

Nemo 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. Nemo should be fed 2-3 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.
