    Oh i dont think its related.. I ask because loose substrate can be tricky with these guys some will eat it an get impacted. Eco earth is better then sand tho.. I did see you sont leave food in there and thats good! Leopard geckos have whats called a jacobsons organ and they tend to go around licking everything it kinda helps them know where they are at and other things so thats always something to keep in mind.

    I have posted the link to her walking. She is just around 6 inches long. The other has no deposits and has no mobility issues.

    the second leo has no issues or deposits and I wouldn't be able to get her right now as she is sleeping in her hide and i don't want to pull her out as she tends to get stressed a little easier. That's the only leo with the deposits, they are very bubbly-like and are not solid.

    Generally a 2 yo female leo should be longer than 6 inches from snout to tail tip. Sunny looks pudgy to me. A 2 yo leo is an adult. For Sunny follow Aliza's Schedule 144 for adult leos. Then you'll only be dusting Sunny's prey 1x per week. That, alone, may reduce the armpit bubbles. I'd also put Sunny on a diet. At first substitute crickets for any mealworms she gets now. Mealworms are significantly higher in fat! After 2 weeks on this mealworm-free diet, if Sunny shows no armpit bubble reduction and/or weight loss, reduce the number of crickets she gets at each of 2 feedings per week.

    Depending upon the stage of MBD some recovery may be possible.

    Try this schedule for that leo. I like Zoo Med's supplements better than Repashy's Calcium Plus, because both Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 and Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins withOUT D3 contain substantial amounts of plain calcium carbonate per dose.

    Weekly Schedule 124 for Leopard Geckos 0-12 months old
    (withOUT UVB)
    Early stage metabolic bone disease (MBD) problems include uneven (lopsided) gait, bowed limbs, belly dragging, and an underbite.
    • Crickets or dubia >> Monday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Mealworms >> Tuesday
    • Crickets or dubia >> Wednesday - lightly dusted with pure precipitated calcium carbonate withOUT D3 (Zoo Med's Repti Calcium or NOW human brand calcium)
    • Crickets or dubia >> Thursday
    • Crickets or dubia >> Friday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins withOUT D3
    • Mealworms >> Saturday
    • No food or free choice >> Sunday
    For link 124 click: Weekly Feeding & Supplement Schedule 124 for leopard geckos 0-12 months old

    For link 77 click: Gecko Multivitamins

    For link 24 click: Calcium powders with D3: Zoo Med, Rep-Cal, Fluker, Exo Terra, + others

    PS:

    What are you feeding the leos' insects and worms? The nutrition the feeders receive is passed on to your geckos.
