Hi all,

I think my little Eastern Stone Gecko has forgotten what being nocturnal means. Is this harmful to his health in anyway?

Cheers James

I have 3 hides and plenty of cover. He is adult size and he is in a 3x1x1 foot tank.

He just doesn't use the hides. I'll put pics of his tank soon.

Do have any heating?
I dont keep ESG's but its not unusual for some geckos to stay out during the day, many geckos will come out an hour or two before sundown

When u say has forgotten what being nocturnal is, do u mean he is active during the day and feeding etc? or do u mean he just sleeps out in the open?

He feeds any time of day. He seems to not sleep he is always active.
I do have heating but only turn it only on unnaturally cold days.

This is his house.

If he is eating and does not seem stressed i would not worry about it.
Has he ever used his hides?

Yea i don't mind him being out all day. I was just concerned because he has gone in one in about a month.

I find a lot of my male geckos are active in the day during breeding season. On the prowl !! Nothing to worry about as above if its eating and healthly i wouldnt worry.

My ESG are the same. They rarely use their hides. All of my ESG are like that. Has not caused them any problems. Are healthy and produce offspring.

your tank looks all wet dose it have a hide in a dry area of the tank i suggest only watering/misting one side of the tank in future cheers

I replaced the top layer of coco peat just this afternoon so that's why it looks wet and yes all the logs in the tank are hollow so they are dry. It should dry out by tomorrow.
