Loop and Scoop Baby!
At our shows, we provide gecko ambassadors to the public to help spread the joy of crested geckos.
Often times, people that want to experience a gecko haven't, and an quick and easy explanation for how to handle a gecko (any reptile really if you think about it) was required.
If you want to hand walk a gecko, you have to get it there first.
And that's where the loop and scoop comes in.
You Loop your fingers around the body of the gecko and under the belly, instead of grabbing it by its sides-
And then you scoop it up!
It really is as simple as that.
The scoop your thumb and forefinger make behind the front legs and under the belly of a crested gecko will force it to put its feet on your index finger and the body will follow, right into your hand!
