    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi everyone, itís madison ozzys mom again, my little baby still hasnít eaten with me. Iíve had him for almost 2 weeks at this point and still nothing Iím absolutely terrified. I wonít really be if he was an adult but heís a little baby and Iím so scared Iím going to lose him on the bright side though heís pretty active and exploring his new home he just is not interested in bugs and Iím so scared Iím scared heíll die of malnutrition or from MBD. Please please please help thank you.

    Please share a current image of your leopard gecko Ozzy.

    Have you tried spoon-feeding him Repashy's Grub Pie or dabbing a bit of Grub Pie on Ozzy's nose?

    Judging by this photo Ozzy does have some "meat" on his bones. Have you some idea how old Ozzy is?

    Oops, sorry. Repashy's Grub Pie is definitely what I meant! Please get some ASAP.


    PS:
    1. Please share an image of Ozzy's 10 gallon setup.
    2. Did you decide to go with a heat mat + a thermostat?
    3. What are the ground temps underneath Ozzy's warm DRY hide?
    4. Does Ozzy have a water dish?
    5. Something else you can do to help Ozzy feel more secure is cover both sides & the back with brown paper from large shopping bags.

    I’m out of the house as soon as I’m home I’ll send pictures. I assume he’s only a month due to the fact he’s only 3 grams

    Something very important

    This gecko is quite small, I would avoid handling until they are at least 10 + grams / 3 months old just to make sure they are eating. Also to make sure they are not getting stressed out.
