    Default Need help getting my Leopard Gecko to eat.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    When I got my gecko he was in good shape with a nice fat tail. I can't get him to eat regularly. He seems to be lazy. Night and day all he seems to do is sleep. The tank is 80-82 degrees durning the day and about 78-76 a night. I tried crickets and meal worms and he seems to not be interested. Last night I dumped the meal worms right infront of his main den. When I checked this morning they were all still alive.

    Any help would be gratly appreciated.

    His temps are to low. Hes not digesting properly. Raise the temps to 88-90 degrees.

    Yep Sparky is right you need to raise the temp of the substrate. If he still wont
    eat you might want to go get a fecal done on him.
