A couple weeks ago, i went to buy a leopard gecko, then whenever we had asked for help, all of the reptile sales associates came to us. Talking rather rudely towards my mother and I.
Telling us that we could put our leopard gecko in sand, yet PETCO had them in sand. They told us that we needed a wet hide for their shed time, which they did not, along with a gecko shedding. They told us that we needed to feed them live food, they had dead worms in their bowls. Also we had been told by the rude sales associates that the leopard geckos need water at all times.
The poor pets had the EXACT OPPOSITE of everything that was being said. You are not supposed to put more than one leopard gecko in a tank, they had about 8 geckos in a 1 foot by 1 foot tank. Needless to say i will never be buying anything from PETCO ever again.
People need to be aware of the neglect, and rudeness of all PETCOS I've been to.
