Advertisement Tripod has not had a good time with things lately. i adopted him/her for that reason. Either by way of an injury or poor shedding causing constriction, the poor thing lost a leg, and some other injury took its tail. The tail will grow back of course, and has begun to do so, but the leg is a goner. He is quite ambulatory and a vet supplied some ointment to stave off infection. He or she is eating and eliminating properly, so I have hopes that it will grow up and lead as normal of a life as possible. I do have some concern over the whitish places, I'm unsure if that is a remnant of the ointment previously applied, or some leftover skin or something else. I'm gonna give some short soakings to see if that remedies the issue, but for now I am gonna allow for adjustment to the new environment, I figure it is under enough stress at the moment. If it happens to lose the other leg despite my efforts, I'm a little unsure what I'll do. whether a gecko that crippled could live a quality life, I'm not sure.
