    Default Is my leo fat?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have a male leo who is about 6 months old. He is about 7.5 inches long and he eats a few mealworms everyday. To me, his stomach looks bloated but I'm not sure if this is normal? He has no armpit bubbles which is a good sign, but I'm still concerned about his stomach. What do you guys think? (pics attached)

    He doesn't look fat from above. Armpits are neither good nor a bad sign, some geckos have them, some don't. Take a picture of him from the bottom - put him on something transparent, ideally glass. What substrate do you use? Do you feed him exclusively mealworms?

    Yes, I feed him exclusively mealworms and I use tile for his substrate. I'll attach a picture shortly

    I'm not too sure, when are you usually able to tell? He/she has two little bulges where the testes (should be), I think it just might be because of my low quality pic

    After i zoomed in an had my wife look we are saying female, the pores are smaller and almost in arch shape where males are in more of a \/ shape. So the going off food maybe due to ovulation if its a female tho i have a male being real picky right now so it may work both ways but none of my ovulating females have gone off food so ya never know.
