    Exclamation Lump on lower jaw


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi there, does anyone know what this could possibly be? I did not see this last night, so it is a sudden lump. I can see a vet if absolutely necessary, but I would prefer to try to fix this at home first. I only have one exotic vet here and I have had nothing but awful experience with them. The next closest is 2 hours away and that one has horrible reviews as well :( thank you guys so much! Picture is below

    Note: I got her with the nub arm! She’s perfectly okay there

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, ratattack!

    I see a lump under her lower left jaw.
    1. How does that lump feel?
    2. About how old is she?
    3. What does the inside of her mouth look like?
    4. Did she hatch with the nub left front arm?
    5. Please share her supplements: brand, exact name, & frequency.
    6. What does she eat?
    7. What food do you feed her bugs & worms?

    Hi there! thanks for the reply.

    - The lump is soft and squishy, it feels like the rest of her skin
    - I don't know her exact age but she's still a baby. I've had her for a few months.
    - The inside of her mouth looks completely normal, a good pink color and no sign of mouth rot.
    - I'm not sure if she hatched with it or not, but I bought her with the nub arm completely healed.
    - I use repti-calc, her crickets are dusted once a week and I have a little bowl of it available for her that she will lick up every now and then.
    - She gets crickets weekly, and mealworms twice weekly. She gets waxworms once a week as well.
    - I purchase live bugs from my local pet store so I'm not sure what they're fed with

    Hope that helps!
    Thanks Elizabeth Freer thanked for this post

    You're welcome!

    Please share more info on your supplement.
    1. Brand: (Zoo Med, Repashy, etc ?)
    2. Exact name: for instance Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 or without D3?

    I don't know what that lump on your leo's lower jaw might be. Since it's squishy, it could be fluid.

    We are what we eat. Once you bring the crickets home, they should be fed. Same goes for mealworms.

    Aliza (GU's acpart) uses this already ground Professional Reptiles' Pro Gutload for her mealworm/superworm bedding as well as for her insect and worm food.


    Gutload Ingredients for Bugs & Worms . . . . . . thanks to Olimpia -- August 2013

    "A commercial gut loading food like Bug Burger or Superload (both by Repashy), Cricket Crack, Dinofuel, etc. is going to make your life easier AND provide a nutritious diet to your crickets at the same time. Avoid Fluker's gutloads, as they are super feeble in their formulas.

    "If you opt for making your own gutload at home, here is a list of great ingredients to use:
    Best: mustard greens, turnip greens, dandelion flowers & leaves, collard greens, escarole lettuce, papaya, watercress, and alfalfa.
    Good: sweet potato, carrots, oranges, mango, butternut squash, kale, apples, beet greens, blackberries, bok choy, and green beans.
    Dry food: bee pollen, organic non-salted sunflower seeds, spirulina, dried seaweed, flax seed, and organic non-salted almonds.
    Avoid as much as possible: potatoes, cabbage, iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, corn, grains, beans, oats, bread, cereal, meat, eggs, dog food, cat food, fish food, canned or dead insects, vertebrates."

    Despite not making any addition to help you solve the lump problem directly, I would like to point that this is not a leopard gecko, but a central american banded gecko (Coleonyx mitratus). I expect you do reconsider the way you are keeping it, starting with its substrate.
