Waldere died this morning, just before feeding time. He had a seizure. It was very fast. He had not had any symptoms of illness before the seizure - active, eating normally, had a good shed about three days ago. I described the event to the vet, and he said it sounds like he had a stroke or aneurysm.

I'm trying to figure out what to do with his body. I don't have a garden to bury him in. Public park is probably a no-go. As a gecko he's much larger than the baby anoles were, so I can't really sneak him into one of the planters in front of my apartment building.

K, I'm so sorry. Never easy, even when they are by nature short-lived guys.

Take care of yourself.

So sorry! I hate losing animals no matter what size they are.
You could take him to the vet for safe disposal, we've had to do that when one of our cats died at home.

He had a good life. Maybe it wasn't a long life, but it was good.

Would it be possible- and not too morbid -to keep him in the freezer until you could reach some kind soul with a back yard.

You're welcome to ours, BTW, although it is a hell of a drive.

I'm sorry! :-(

Gojira is still in a little box in our fridge awaiting burial. :(
