    Default Possible ovulation? Help.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, I just figured out that my leopard gecko, Lux, is actually a female. This whole time I thought Lux was a male, but when I brought Lux to the vet when she was smaller the vet said she was to young to tell the sex but he said it looked like he could possibly be a male. With that being said, the past month-month and a half Lux has been very picky with food, refusing to eat, will eat sometimes at first I thought she was bored of crickets and mealworms so I tried hornworms and she gobbled them up, well then she didn稚 want those either so I got her to eat 2 super worms. So today I noticed a spot on her belly that I知 thinking is ovulation, was just wondering if any of you can maybe try and help me confirm it? And if she is ovulating what if there is anything I need to do to help? I値l insert pictures, like I said I just realized she is actually a female so I知 new to this ovulation stuff. 0384318A-DD84-4142-8E40-9EDD5BF10459.jpg660D8225-A9B8-4C80-9947-1C352EA35F08.jpg609886C3-4CA7-4948-9039-A72589E30901.jpg

    Any advice to make sure she gets her proper amount of calcium and multi vitamins since she’s only eating maybe two-three times a week if I’m lucky?

    Lux is around 2 years old, it will be 2 years since I got her in September. I use calcium with d3, calcium without d3, and multivitamin, all are zoo med brand. I do dusted crickets, Monday is calcium without d3, Wednesday is calcium with d3, and Friday is multivitamin and then Sunday is undusted food. But since she’s in ovulation she’s refusing food all the time, I’m lucky if I can get her to eat 2-3 times a week right now, she got bored of mealworms in crickets so I tried small hornworms with her, she liked those but the second time I bought them I only got her to eat 3 out of the 4 I had within 1-2 weeks. She’s very picky with food right now as well. She’s still acting normal as far as how active she is, she hasn’t really lost weight, maybe a little bit but not much, her poops look normal when she does go given that she’s not eating as much as she used to.
