So my brother came home from my neighbors house last night and told me that my neighbor had a very, very unhealthy gecko that their son keeps as a pet, so I went over there to take a look at it. What I saw shocked me, and I'm now in temporary care of the gecko for the next 2-6 weeks. His stats: Sparky is 3 (almost 4) and they got him for free because he dropped his tail soon after hatching. My neighbors have had him since he was a baby, and he used to be as fat and happy as my Lightning. He's a hypo-carrot tail like Lightning as well. They used to keep him in a good enclosure, but when I got him he was in a ten gallon with sand, feces and mealworms EVERYWHERE, one water dish, a mealie dish, no heating pad, and a hide that looks way to small for him. His tail is the thickness of a pencil eraser at most, and his mouth is uneven (lower jaw sticks out). His spine is curved in a "s" shape (his back is high but his chest is nearly flat), he's super pale, and his feet are basically blobs of un-shed skin. I moved him into a seperate cage and then took the sand out, washed the cage, put in larger hides and moist spaglum (I don't think that's the right name, but it's that New Zealand moss that is used in shed boxes and hides), put a heating pad in, and force-fed him chicken baby food and calcium powder. I also put a towel over his cage so that he will be as stress-free as possible for a few days. He's super friendly and came right up to me when I put my hand in the cage, but I could feel his bones/ribs and see his shoulder blades when I picked him up. Besides force-feeding and waiting to see what happens, what else can I do to help this little guy? Even though he's not mine I feel a strong need to try and save him, or at least make his passing as painless as possible. (Sorry for blurriness of the pictures, my camera wasn't working right.
