    Default Gecko not eating?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi there! I recently purchased 3 leopard geckos from a large chain pet store (against my morals but it is the only store within an hour of me) and each are in their separate tanks, properly set up. One of the geckos will not eat as much as the others. I have no idea how old they are but I know that they are under 6 months and really tiny, maybe 4 inches. This gecko is the medium sized one of the three and the others have eaten 4 crickets the day after I brought them home. He ate 0 crickets and 2 mealworms the day after. I even tried leaving some freeze dried worms in a dish in his tank overnight but he didn't touch them. This is only their second full day with me (2/12) and I am going to feed them in the evenings when I get home from school so I will see if he wants any crickets today, but any advice is appreciated!

    These geckos are in a brand new environment and it takes time to adjust to it. All geckos are different, some are more bold early on than others. It sounds like one of them is more stressed out then the others. Which is perfectly normal for a young Leo. Try to minimize being around them right now till they get used to their surroundings.

    I'm sure more experienced people will chime in here as well.
