    Default My Leo hasn't eaten in over a week!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have tried crickets, mealworms, and waxworms but he just doesnt seem interested in anything. I bought him from Petsmart on December 30th 2018 and I was told he was less than three months old. Unsure what gender. The last time he ate was May 8th, just over a week ago. He had 8 dusted mealworms.

    I weighed him yesterday at 45 grams and two weeks ago at 43 grams, so he isn't losing weight. I noticed he is still licking his calcium bowl and having regular bowel movements. He also seems really active lately, doing laps around the couch for an hour.

    His tank mid temperature is at 85F and 46% humidity. Multiple hides on both sides. (See picture)

    I am unsure what to do and when I should start to worry or bring him in to a vet. Please help.20190516_174208.jpg

    As long as he's active and not visibly losing weight he's probably fine. It's not unusual for them to not eat for awhile, even a long while. Don't bother with the waxworms. They aren't that good for the gecko and if you keep them for too long you're going to have a bunch of wax moths!
