So this isnt a very big warning, but just so you guys know.


When I got Loki he was on wood chips. Soon as I got him I switched the wood out with paper towels and the next day I bought a brown Zilla Reptile Carpet for my 10 gallon.

Ive noticed when I do feed Loki in his tank (i dont anymore) When he went to go grab the roach or mealworm, his teeth would get stuck on the carpet. He would do that leo scream noise, and thrash his head around violently. I would have to help him get his teeth out. He did bleed for a bit, and kept on licking his lips getting the blood off for about 20 minutes.

Just a warning guys.

Loki doesnt have his toes, so im not sure if Leo toes would get stuck, but his teeth do.

I moved this to the business section since it's a review of a company/product. I will need you to add a post with your full name though.

It will be interesting to see if others have had the same experiences with this product.

ya I use the repti carpet and tile and I feed mine on the tile and for my other gecko I use the repti carpet and a food dish that they cannot crawl out of because I did notice that my gecko's all do the same thing especially my girl she tends to dive harder for her food. It can be a pain to use the tile tho cuz the mealies will walk right off of it so you can either feed one at a time or two and keep pushing them back towards the middle. If you don't want to do that then just get the dish.

Thank You Amanda Parham
