    Yes, there are several species, of which I'd say four or so are typically available in the hobby. Coleonyx mitratus probably being the most common. The photos do look like Coleonyx mitratus. Google images and see what you think. I would recommend that you spend some time researching husbandry of these guys.
    I wish I could tell you what was wrong with the little one. I'd be demanding a refund from the place I bought it.
    But, if you get it eating well and get some heft on it, it may live out it's life just fine. All you can do is try.

    Scientific (Latin) name of your geckos:
    Genus: Coleonyx
    Species: mitratus ?

    I think I see some "thickening" of the legs/joints in the smaller gecko.

    What are the ingredients in Repashy's Lo D3?

    Rep-Cal's D3 Calcium has +++ amounts of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is fat soluble. It sticks around in a gecko's body. It is not flushed out every time a geckos pees.

    Get some Zoo Med's Repti Calcium without D3. That's pure calcium carbonate. (PetCo carries it.) Use that at a 2nd dusting per week.

    Each Week:
    Monday ~ lightly dust each cricket with Rep-Cal's D3 calcium
    Thursday ~ lightly dust each cricket with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium without D3

    Thanks guys. I really hope this helps. It would suck to have to take another animal to the vet just for it to die again :/

    A few weeks before this my chameleon got sick and I took him to the vet and we did everything we could. He started getting better but then he just passed away. I was in so much shock that for some odd reason I went to the same pet store I got him at and bought these two geckos. I know it’s not fair to the geckos but I have them now and I do love them and do what I can to give them a good life. But I went about buying them all wrong and now this little one is messed up? I just had to deal with the death of my best friend spending so much money at the vet and now I’ll have to do the exact same for this gecko?? I don’t even think I can afford it. This is a horrible situation. I’ve became so anti corporate pet stores because of the animals conditions. I just want these poor helpless creatures to be happy and healthy :/ it’s not fair that they can be put through this all the time and not be saved without the pet store still winning cause you bought their pet.

    But anyway, thank you. I’ll try the other calcium and keep getting them to eat. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    That's a lot to deal with! I'm sorry. Sometimes life isn't fair.

    Returning your small gecko for a refund may put a dent in the corporate situation. It will confirm that you don't approve of the gecko they sold. Otherwise how will they know?

    Yes but don’t you think it’s been too long to return her? Plus if I return her then she’ll go back to that horrible place and no one will buy her cause of her condition. I’d rather just keep her and do all I can to make her happy and comfortable. I may have made a mistake buying her the way I did but what’s done is done and I don’t want to give up on her. I’ll try the calcium thing and feed her and see how that goes. Hopefully she won’t get worse. In the meantime I’ll still try to look for a cheaper vet than the last one I went to. Or find one that can do a payment plan with me.

    Also thank you for your sorry about what happen. Life isn’t fair. Especially when it comes to innocent harmless animals. But at least there are people like us who care about these creatures and do what we can
