 My male fat-tailed gecko recently died, Is female Lonley?

Yesterday my male African fat-tailed gecko had to be put to sleep. He was old and very sick, he was suffering from starvation. He is over the age of 13, and has been with a female named bubbles. They were very affectionate towards each other. Bubbles has been with him all her life, she is also about the same age. Is my female Bubbles going to be sad and lonley? Should I keep her by herself, or get her a friend?

Generally AFTs are non-social animals, and prefer to live alone.

I’d say watch the female’s activity, and if it shows any signs of being unhealthy or different than usual, check with the vet, and then maybe get a new AFT. The sudden vanish of the fellow gecko might cause some stress, but I’m not sure exactly.

I am so sorry about your Fat tailed gecko! soveringngale is correct, as they are not very social animals. But if she does start acting strange, and continues for over 2 days with this behavior, then you should call a vet and then see if it would help if she had company. Good luck!
