Well, it has been a week since the glue trap incident and Stucko is looking much better. He's alert and moves fast. Most of his toes are free and he can see out his right eye. Since they hunt at night, I assume Stucko is eating when I'm not watching. He doesn't appear to be loosing weight and the crickets are disappearing . Meal worms burrow under the substrate and vanish before my eyes, so I'm not using them (but they make a tasty treat for the gold fish though).
I added spider plants to the tank which Stucko took to climbing on them right away. It looks like he's using the water dish because somehow it's gets substrate in it and he appears hydrated.
I read they don't handle well. I'm sure Stucko was born wild, and wild animals usually don't do well in captivity, so I leave him alone. The only time I have to bother him is when adding gut loaded crickets, filling his water dish and misting the tank.
However, Stucko proved he's tougher than the average Common House Gecko. I thought he would have died from just the stress of being in a glue trap, let alone being removed from it.
I'm hoping I can catch Stucko basking on his rock house so I can take a good photo of him to post.
Thanks for all the kind replies.
