I just found a teeny tiny gecko running through my house, I caught him in a bowl.

Should I keep him in my empty fish tank or set him free. I'm afraid he will die either way! I'm sure he has a family but won't be able to find them.

  • Yeah, set him free. Maybe he'll eat some bugs if you have any in your house. At least there's a chance he'll live.

  • let him go outside. WE have some kind of lizards here in South Carolina and my neice let one go in my house. I found him as lizard jerky behind my tv stand when I moved it to clean behind it.

  • It will die if you don't set him free. Trust me, he'll be fine.

  • ahhh so cute!! I'd want to keep him sooo bad but I totally agree that he should be let go. because if he's used to having tons of space to run around and basically the world is his playground then he won't be happy in a tank. Very VERY thoughtful of what your trying to decide though!
