 BROKEN NECK?!!!

I’ve has my crested for about 6 months and today he fell out of the branches he hides in. I think he may have broken his neck because instantly he looked like he was dead his legs curled up, his mouth opened and his tongue flapped out of it. I instantly picked him up and he woke up out of it. He hasnt moved after ths and I’m starting to get really worried. It’s too late tonight to take him to a vet. WHAT SHOULD I DO!!!??

Im sorry for the loss of your pet. I understand the attachment we have to our animals is one that can cause us to react very emotionally. And, accidents really suck. Ive not known a gecko to just fall out of a branch and break its neck. A very sad and tragic occurrence to be sure.

I however will not accept blame for the fact you didnt take your pet to an emergency vet and instead chose to post for information on a website thinking somehow a bunch of strangers who are a mix of kids, collectors and breeders will be able to perform a miracle cure, and then get mad when we dont post for 22 hours. Sorry I am a bit busy with my house being painted while I am undergoing chemo for Uterine cancer (we all have our stuff we are going through-but thats why Im around less) and wasnt here every minute awaiting your post so I could answer in timely fashion.
