I am so mad at myself... I lost my gecko of 7 years recently. I left her unattended and she wandered off and vanished. We've torn apart the house, outside and the shed because she could have found a way out there who knows she could have squeezed under the door.
I know this happens all the time for some gecko owners that the gecko will go missing, even escape out of the cage if you don't make sure the lid is locked.
It been driving the whole family nuts. Even the dogs who a few times when she has hid herself in a strange place found her. We finally went a got that second gecko we'd been talking about for years because we didn't realize how much a huge part of our lives our Mindy was. We're still looking for Mindy, because Baby Godzilla will, never ever replace her. In theory could find her months from now and have a spare cage and everything but I'm scared even with diligent searches we might never find her.
