    Default Skinny leopard gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Ive had two female leopard geckos for a little over three years now. I got them when they were babies but one has thrived and become huge and the other is slim with a healthy tail. I think i bought her blind in one eye but shes a terrible hunter. She eats regularly but it doesnt compare to her sisters feeding habits and shes not close to the same size. Its been that way since i got them and ive never seen them be aggressive toward each other they seem to be the best of friends day or night. So should i do anything and if so what. They live in a 40 gallon tank with three hides (two moist) plus multiple fake plants and two water bowls with at least four inches between each.

    Welcome to GU! Even though it looks as if they're doing well together, watch them closely to see if the big one is keeping the smaller one from the food, or if she's sitting on her wherever the smaller one goes. I'm not saying that bullying is necessarily going on, but it could be, and sometimes it's subtle. Other things you could try include a trial separation, hand feeding the smaller one, or feeding her in a smaller space. It also happens that some geckos grow to different sizes than others even if they're related.
