    Wild caught African fat tail?

    Hello, I am new to owning fat tails. I got a male fat tail gecko from someone who wanted to sell him. Said they got him from petland not long ago. Im having a bit of anxiety because in the case hes from petland Im worried hes wild caught. Besides having a suspicion he seems healthy. Hes a good size with a fat tail. Although it is regenerated. He is eating and is good with being handled hes very calm. I am going to be taking a fecal sample to the vet to check for parasites.

    fat tails

    fat tails are harder to breed in captivity that leopard geckos so the majority of them are imports ( wild Caught )

    some parasites will be found in almost all gecko fecal exams even captive bred

    the vet will most likely prescribe Panacur (fenbendazole) its a white liquid that can be given orally
    (must see a vet for dosing levels) ml/gr

    if the gecko is otherwise healthy and eating well i wouldn't panic

    good luck........Kirk
