But then I think, a perfectly healthy gecko from a wonderful breeder could have a genetic defect pop up out of the blue, You just can't tell. I just don't know what to do at this point. Am I making sense? Thanks again for reading, guys.
    I am also completely terrified for my other female (Fig) now. I feel like rushing her to the vet every time she does something out of the ordinary. And I know that's silly, I'm just so paranoid after my other leo.
    Sometimes rescuing carries consequences.

    No need to panic. If Fig does something unusual, let us know.

    Thank you so much Elizabeth

    Fig should shed soon, hopefully she will feel better after that. I think I will contact the gecko sanctuary and see if she will ship. Thank you so much guys, I don't know what I would do without you all!

    LOL honestly I don't know if I will end up with another leopard gecko or an african fat tailed gecko at this point. I did find a breeder called Redwood Exotics and adored one of their little ones for sale. But I was a little iffy, I hadn't really heard anything about them. So if anyone knows anything about the, please share. I'll post a picture of the little one I liked. She is labeled as a super snow eclipse (I don't know if you need hets but 50% tremper albino) coming from their melanisitc snow line. But just curious, this one looks very young, I would say two months old. I thought it wasn't safe to ship them until they were a certain weight? Once again, thank you all so much for helping!Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 9.22.33 PM.jpg
    Do you all think she looks healthy?

    To find out about Redwood exotics, check faunaclassifieds.com and look at the BOI. The gecko does look small and young. After you find out about the breeder, if you're still comfortable with them, ask them what the hatch date is and whether they plan to ship immediately or to wait.
