    Default Fat/Calcium pockets...


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    This leo has HUGE fat or calcium pockets (is that what they're called??) by her front legs...are they supposed to be that big? I've seen them before but I've never seen them so big...the other side is the same...

    Lol...
    Well, normal i may not say, just because they aren't supposed to have them. But it is a bit of a common occurance, you may be over-supplementing... How often do you feed, and how often do you use supplements? :O
    Beautiful girl though... nice size and a great looking tail!

    I had also a female with "fat pocket" I left her for few days without food,and it gone away. Sometimes it come back, But I don't think this is a problem (I hope)

    Those "pockets" are calcium deposits as debated on Geckoforums.net. They are not normal but some leos get them. It is 100% harmless. Dont starve her or anything. She is perfectly fine.

    From what I have also heard, they are harmless.

    Tile is great, if your lizards are indigenous to your bathroom
