Have a gargoyle gecko of exceptional stock that is a notoriously picky feeder. He/she is at about the 8 month mark and steadfastly has refused everything ive offered in the past two weeks...any of you have any tips, Ive never had a problem like this with these before so Im a bit concerned.

Maybe your temps are too low, you might try giving the animal a thermal gradient and that may stimulate its appetite. Also, take its water away for 2 days and then offer it some runny baby food or blended fruit.

Thanks much, the temps are pretty much dead on, cool end is 68-72 and the hot end is up around 82, Im gonna get it a bit thirsty and see what happens! Thanks again.

I've had MANY aurics do this. They will eventually eat. I had a juvenile quit eating for about a month, and I was worried sick. It is now one of the largest specimens that I have.
