    Default Gecko quit eating and is constantly shedding?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    About 2 weeks ago my Gecko completely quit eating and is shedding really bad?

    He normally ate crickets and vitabugs superworms, but he hasn't eaten anything?

    His humidity is around 20% and temp is around 80 degrees, we are fairly new to owning a leopard gecko so im not really sure whats going on?

    We have had him now for about 3 months

    ok, so this sounds like he needs to get to a vet ASAP.

    also, can you post pictures of both the gecko and his setup? and how are you measuring temp and humidity?

    he needs more than 80F to digest, a hot spot (preferably with belly heat) of 90-95F would help him.

    so, we need a lot more detail, please. but it still sounds like a vet visit is going to be a good choice for him.

    I bought the Zilla Desert starter kit that came with 2 halogen bulbs a red and white I believe both 50W

    I have been using the temp/humidity gauge that came with the kit.

    I'm willing to do/buy whatever I need for the gecko I hate to see it like this...

    I don't have a way to upload pics at the moment, however my gecko is peeling around the feet and eyes mostly, they look very dry

    again, he needs to see a vet.

    the temp and humidity gauges like that are notoriously inaccurate. that might be the source of the problem, but he should still get medical care.

    Is your gecko doing better? Its recommended to use a heat mat with leopard geckos because it helps them digest. I'd reccomend looking at a gecko care sheet and seeing what is missing from your starter kit. Hopefully you get your little friend to start eating!
