I'm not sure how they are supposed to act. He is sleeping all of the time it seems. He does walk around when we take him out but it seems when he is in the tank he just stays in the same spot. I don't know anything about these critters, please help me. My daughter is in love with him. He is in the tank with another gecko, I believe that one is a day gecko. We got him about two weeks ago and he seems to be doing fine. I had no idea what I was getting involved in. I would appreciate all of the help I can get. We got them both from Pet Supermarket and they have no idea what they are doing. First they sold me a Tokay gecko and told me it was a Marble. I only discovered it on my own when we kept getting bit and found the information on the internet and now we have exchanged him for the Fat tail. When we got there they had him in a tank labeled baby Leopard geckos and it had sand on the bottom. He now has sand stuck to the bottom of his feet. I don't think he has any claws either. Please help!
