    So if she looks "rough" I'd be worried that she's WC and has a parasite load? Can you get a fecal sample to a vet for testing?

    Also, please post a good clear pic of the gecko and her enclosure?

    What are your temps? I'm assuming if you have a healthy male you know the proper care, but can we verify? If she's having health issues her husbandry is pretty critical

    How long have you had her? She may have old shed stuck to her feet so hopefully it comes off with this current shed. But I would definitely get a sample to the vet just to be sure about the parasites.
