    Default Not eating as often


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My gecko is 13 months old now. I feed him every other day but after he shed recently (July 15 he shed) he’s skipped some meals (he still ate after shedding though). Today was his feeding day but he wasn’t interested at all. (I feed crickets and mealworms, next month I want to try superworms). Do you think my gecko is letting me know that he doesn’t want to eat as often since he’s older now? He’s healthy and very active, healthy poops too and good tank and temps. Opinions??

    Thanks for checking in.

    Bagel will reach his maximum size by about 18 months old. I wouldn't worry. It sounds like Bagel is doing alright and that he's continuing to grow.

    He didn’t eat with me yesterday, but I left a bowl of mealworms in his tank (with vitamins) for him to eat at night, which he did. I guess he likes to eat by himself sometimes.
    Also by 18 months old should they have a thicker tail since they’ve stopped using all the food for growth? Instead of being fat bagel has a really long body, reminds me of a blue tongue skink sometimes when he walks.

    My leo is 7 months old and is also very long and thin, but her tail is nice and plump. I guess they can vary.
