Me and my boyfriend were asked to take a trio of these geckos (giant day geckos) from our friend who hasn't been taking proper care of them. They seem to all have good body weight, but one has some adhearing shed that apparently has been on her for weeks. I have sprayed her profusly and even bought a commercial product to help with it (its a zoo-med product). I sprayed it on her then carefully used a q tip to try and remove some of the shed. I know their skin is very delicate so I did not want to do too much. It worked a little bit, there is still some left though, and I don't know what to do. Any ideas? Some of the geckos also have some gray areas in their skin and their digits look a little bit messed up. Is this from not having proper humidity? How much exactly do they need? Do I need a humid area or will daily spraying with water suffice? We have plants to put in their terrarium, they are mother-in-law tongues. Are these good? As far as diet goes I'm pretty certain they need crickets but do they need fruit baby food also? And lastly what are their temp requirements? do I need a heat lamp and a UVB bulb? Any advice would be great as I am used to Leopard geckos/fat tails and rhacodactylus species but am excited to get started with a new species! Thanks in advance.
