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 may be necessary to prevent further deformity of the spine and/or hips.
