Floppy Tail Syndrome (FTS)

Symptoms: Tail hangs over gecko’s back or to the side when upside down.

Cause: Sleeping upside down repeatedly, deforming the base tail bone and hips.

Treatment: Make an appointment with an exotic veterinarian. Tail amputation will likely be necessary to prevent further deformity of the spine and/or hips.
