    How long has it been since your leo pooped?

    From another post, it seems as if you are using reptile carpet as the substrate.

    What do you feed him?
    What calcium and vitamins are you using?

    A picture of your leo and his cage will be most helpful.

    If you don't already have one then put a UTH on the tank. Belly heat is super important for leopard geckos and food digesting.

    Hello,

    If you look in this caresheet it explains how to post a picture. Also take the time to read through it carefully and let us know how it compares to your geckos husbandry.

    So you ARE using reptile carpet as the substrate?

    Tell us: Is your calcium a pure calcium or a calcium with D3? Just in case, never leave calcium with D3 in the tank. Pure calcium should be left in the tank 24/7.

    Is the brand Rep-Cal? You need a phosphorus-free calcium.

    If you do not have multivitamins right now, I suggest buying Zoo Med's Reptivite with D3 and vitamin A acetate.
