Today's Pet of the Day
Milo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Milo
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Crested Gecko
Home: North Hampshire, UK
   This is Milo. He's almost two and is a Crested gecko. He's special because he didn't have the best start in life as he was wasn't kept in adequate conditions or with the correct diet. When I got him when he was about four months old, he was very underweight and had multiple bone deformities and problems moving which required medical treatment. Since then he's done really well, putting on weight, and he's really active. He loves being handled, has integrated into a group of girls and responds to his name. He still has a kink in his spine and tail which unfortunately will never go away, but it doesn't cause him any pain and only effects his balance a little so I'd say he's a very happy gecko! :)

    He eats about five medium brown crickets a day covered in calcium dust or a vitamin powder called nutrobal and he gets a special fruit flavored gecko paste called repashy to help him put on weight. He also gets puréed mango, pear, apple or peach or waxmoths as a treat. Puréed mango is his favourite and is what he's licking off the spoon in the picture!
