I volunteer for a wildlife rescue and am having trouble getting a marbled gecko to eat. Since they are so small, normal force feeding options are not available. The best thing we have been able to do is put droplets of liquid food on its snout and try to get it to lick it off. Unfortunately the gecko isn't really responding to that. The vets don't have much experience with geckos and I can't seem to find any good information on wild gecko rehabilitation online. Does anyone have any resources or experience in this area who can give some suggestions?

I’d be leaving it in a dark place with some small crickets inside the tub, pulling it out or even just trying to tong feel it will just stress it out more it’ll never eat

If you're planning to let it go, just let it go. Sounds like it's going to have better chances out there.
