    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    hi
    my leo is refusing to eat he always eats whatever i put in there but that isnt why i am worried its because i think he is injured or cant see he is laying down in a corner and wont move and its not like him to do that.
    here is some info you might need
    tank heat warm end 93f cool end 73f (he is at the warm end.)
    he is a male and is around a year old
    also i cant take him to a vets because none of them will look at him and the nearest one is a 2 hour journey away.
    please help i am worried sick
    many thanks

    Kester ~

    Sometimes there is not an easy answer. It will really help me out if you post ALL your questions in this one thread. We see soooo many leo questions here that this will help us not to repeat advice you've already been given.

    If the temperatures are inadequate leos cannot properly digest their food. Have you an overhead dome above an UTH? That will provide necessary warm air so that your leo will be more active and not be glued to his heat mat .

    How is your humid hide---location and such?

    What calcium and supplements are your using?

    No problem at all. There are many details we need to cover.

    An UTH only provides your leo with belly heat. In order for your leo to be active and comfortable in the tank, you should add appropriate heat from an overhead dome.

    The humid hide should be on the warm end of the tank. The warmth increases the humidity within the humid hide.

    Is your Exo Terra Reptile Calcium pure calcium carbonate? As well you'll need a phosphorus-free calcium with vitamin D3 and some multivitamin powder. Otherwise your leo is at risk for metabolic bone disease.

    Please read the Leo Guidelines linked right below in my signature. Right at the beginning is a very cool setup video by Tony Perkins!!!
