    Default I think my gecko needs to lose weight


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So my gecko has been a bit picky with her food over the past few months. She is pretty much obsessed with superworms and now she has gotten quite chunky. I try to alternate between dubia, mealworms, superworms, and the occasional hornworm but she isn't really into the dubia anymore and really just wants supers and hornworms. I intentionally have avoided waxworms with her because I dont want to risk her getting into those!

    So I guess my question is what is the healthiest way to get her to lose some weight? She is about a year and a half old, and last I checked was 99 grams!

    She looks fine. She's a big girl with a recognizable leopard gecko body type. I don't think you have to worry about it,

    I don't have a picture but I noticed from the side her belly is pretty big and I'm pretty positive it isn't eggs. I just remember hearing that if their belly hangs a bit like that it means they're overweight. She's been pooping so she isn't impacted or anything.

    She looks like a healthy Leopard Gecko to me! I don't think you need to worry about having her lose weight at this point. But maybe if you want to post some more pictures of the area in concern you may get some more answers.
