    She's really calming down, and the clumsiness has gone down a lot, too. I'm assuming it's just her being a clumsy baby. I honestly enjoy having a baby to tong feed since my other female (Fig) just attacks the tongs haha.

    And just thinking... I've never heard about this happening with a gecko, but I know with, say, puppies, for example when you feed them you have to give them the smallest proportions possible so they don't get bloated and the stomach stays as small as possible. I was just wondering if I should limit Sirsee's food amounts because this baby would probably eat 30 worms/roaches if I let her! I've always heard to let them have as much as they want in 10-15 minutes but I have been limiting her to 15 bugs a night. Is that still too much, or can I let her eat her way through my bug colonies? This may sound like a dumb question, but I haven't ever had a gecko with this big of a stomach!

    I have also noticed that when I am handling her, she will tense and untense her back legs. She does it at completely random times. Not after I feed her, not specifically at day or night . . . it's weird. Any ideas?

    Are African Fat Tail geckos known to have vision problems? I have 2 of them and when they actually decide to eat, they act as though they can't see the crickets (even though they are coated in the white calcium powder) and they often miss the cricket and it takes at least 3 attempts to catch it and eat it. Is this normal?

    How do you sex an African Fat Tail gecko?

    Fat tail geckos are like leopard geckos in both cases: some of them get kind of lazy and miss the crickets all the time. You can choose to feed them in a smaller enclosure, hold the cricket by one leg so it can't get away or hand feed. AFT's have prominent bulges near the vent and a "V" shaped pattern of pores just like leopard geckos. If you google "sexing leopard geckos" you can see a picture of this.
