In recapturing an escapee, he dropped his tail. Will a golden gecko regrow it, or do I change his name to Stumpy? I'm more concerned with his physical condition, I know geckos can live fine without a tail, but he's been out of his cage for 4 weeks, and was a bit thinner when I finally recaptured him. The loss of the fat store, as well as the physical trauma of separating his tail - I'm just hoping he can recover!

Thanks for any info!

Howie
