Hi, my day gecko has been acting sluggish lately, and I'm beginning to become concerned for his health. I haven't seen him sticking to the glass walls of his terrarium in almost a week - instead, he's been sitting on the leaves of a plant, a rock, and sometimes even the substrate (which he never used to go near). He didn't respond to a bit of honey smeared on the glass either - he just made a half-hearted attempt to climb up from the substrate and then gave up. His appetite isn't what it used to be... he used to terrorize the crickets that were put in his enclosure, but now he is just letting a bunch of them survive in there, even when they crawl right up to his nose! Could it be that he has just become more comfortable with his surroundings, or do you think I should take him to see a doctor? I'm not even sure how to begin looking for a vet that would treat geckos in my area. Oh, one last thing: when I try to entice him with a bit of baby food on my finger, he'll run away instead of coming right up to me like he used to.
