Default Ysera's new name is Stumpy.

Sometime between this morning's feeding and checking on her about half an hour ago, she dropped her tail.

Nothing bothers her and she's alone, so I assume it simply got stuck on a branch and she instinctively lost it.

To non-crested gecko folks, no, she won't grow it back, but it's normal for many cresteds to lose their tails in their lifetimes. Right now the stub is a bit raw so I'm leaving her alone for a few days to allow healing. Her terrarium recently got gutted and cleaned so I'm sure it will heal very well.

Stumpy herself:


The tail as I found it in the viv. Given the placement, I thought she was attached to it. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was just the tail! I then looked up and noticed Stumpy on the glass.


I'll have gecko feeding pics later. This just caught me by surprise.

I think I would have freaked right out. LOL Defiantly not something you expect to see when going to take care of your pet.

I LOVE Crested Geckos (second only to Gargs), and your is sooo cute!!

I hope she heals up quick, and you really need to post pics of your zoo more often. I don't think I've ever seen pics of Yuffie

GASP

I'll try and get some new pics of her soon! She's in our dining room, which has very dim light, so I have to wait for sun to come in the patio door for good pics of her (her play area is our bathroom, which sucks even more for lighting).

Well, I researched a ton about cresties before getting one, so I knew she would probably drop it eventually, and that if/when she did, it's safe and normal. It just caught me off guard because I don't know what prompted it!

She was climbing about, looking a bit put off by missing her jumping rudder. Got two better photos.

Stumpy.


Close-up of stump. It's already mostly closed up, just a few little spots where blood is dribbling a little.
