    Question Female Leo Not Eating and Having Trouble Finding Food


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi guys! My two year old Leo Gecko (Grace) hasn't been eating a lot. It seems like she has a loss of appetite and trouble seeing her food. I have to manually feed her Funker's Reptiboost using a syringe. I'm worried there's something wrong with her because she won't eat otherwise. She has been living with a male (Steve) who's younger than her by half a year and she laid eggs last year resulting in my third Leo (Bindi) who lives in a separate terrarium. Thank you!

    In these situations, the first thing to do is usually to separate her and see if she is more inclined to eat. If she will take feeders that you gently poke at her mouth, in my opinion this is better than a liquid food. If she's not losing weight it shouldn't be a problem (she may be ovulating and/or gravid). If she's losing a lot of weight, she needs a vet visit.
