that tail looks as if it sat there and rotted away... take your gecko to the vet and have them amputate the tail, don't worry, the tail grows back :)

Expertise

I WILL DISMISS ANY/ALL MEDICAL RELATED QUESTIONS. Please ask somebody else, I can not help you in this area. --My expertise is focused mostly on CHINESE WATER DRAGONS but I am also very experienced with many other reptiles including but not limited to: Chinese and Australian Water Dragons, Bearded Dragons, Leopard Geckos, Anoles, Iguanas, Skinks, Chameleons, Uromastyx, Monitors, Basilisks, Geckos and many more. I can answer questions about their enclosure, lighting, heating, feeding, bathing, supplements, minimum requirements, unique habits, and general care as well as identifying reptile species. I can also answer any question you may have about aquatic turtles. I have limited experience with snakes and amphibians although I can and will do my best to get you the information you need. I prefer not to answer questions about keeping wild caught animals unless they are ill or in danger.

Experience

I have experience owning and researching many species of reptiles. I have been asked to write articles for numerous reptile based websites and I have my own website focused towards reptile care. http://reptilianyex.tripod.com I have reptile care articles published at www.petplacestation.com I currently own one male Chinese Water Dragon, two female Leopard Geckos, one male Green Anole, one male Tokay Gecko and two (male/female pair) Red Ear Slider Turtles.
