When should I buy a wild caught gecko?
Answer: When no captive bred gecko’s are available for purchase. Or when additional unrelated genetic breeding animals
are needed for a breeding program. Even though a wild caught gecko is usually less expensive than its captive bred counterpart when initially purchased, in the long run after the expenses of treating for parasites
and higher mortality it usually end up costing more. If you decide you need a wild caught gecko I recommend taking it to a non domestic veterinarian for an initial checkup.
