    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Brooke!

    Please share a ~60 second video of your smaller gecko. A video may help us see whether MBD is affecting that lizard.

    How are you set up for supplements? Does either your calcium or your multivitamins contain vitamin D3? What brand(s) and frequency do you use? Without a regular D3 source, pure calcium carbonate will not be metabolized.

    Sure I can do that. And yes I give them calcium with d3 mixed with calcium without d3 in a dish like you would do for a leopard gecko? But I also dust the mealworms with it when I put them in the dish but very lightly. But again I havenít seen them eat the mealworms. Theyíre crystallizing or whatever itís called. So Iím going to do what someone on here said and get a few small crickets and dust those with the calcium with d3 and hopefully theyíll eat. But in the meantime hereís a video...

    Has anyone thought of what could be wrong with her? See the white spots on her bottom back? What is wrong? Plus I finally got them crickets. The bigger one are right away. The small one in the pictures would not eat. I had to hold the cricket in front of her face with the rings until she got pissed off and ate them. I did that with about 6 then let them go back to sleeping all the time. It’s about 24 hours later and their stomachs still feel pretty full. Is this all normal? I feel like they should have passed them by now. Plus what is wrong with her bone structure and those white spots on her back?? my poor baby still barely opens her eyes.

    I would NOT leave any supplement in the enclosure 24/7. There's too much chance of accidental overdose supplementing that way.

    How long have you had both these geckos?

    MBD (metabolic bone disease) is a progressive condition that often develops because of vitamin D3 deficiency. However, MBD can also develop with too much D3.

    All supplements are different. Please share all these details.
    1. Brands and exact name(s) of supplements.
    2. Is there always a dish of calcium with D3 mixed with plain calcium in the enclosure?
    3. How often do you dust?
    4. If your gecko does not eat the mealworms just about right away, the powder you've lightly dusted onto the mealworms may fall off.
    5. Are you using a multivitamin too?

    So you have 2 females of different sizes in a 35 gallon enclosure.

    Regarding the "area" on the left back mid-section: Does that seem to be a scar? Could it have resulted from bullying?

    Please share a photo of both these geckos side-by-side.
