I am bummed to report that Stanley, my little western banded gecko, has died, from an apparent sand impaction. I'm just kicking myself about this. I've read about the risk of impaction, but I thought that this wild-caught lizard, in a cage set-up with sand from his own native environment, would not have a problem. And he did fine for several weeks. He had grown quite a bit, and he appeared to be thriving. Bummer.
I'll miss you, Stanley. You were a good lizard.
