    I have always offered food in his enclosure, and even tried offering it outside just to try something new. I've tried hand feeding while holding him, and he gets very aggravated. I would have to take a video when I am home, I am currently away and my boyfriend is watching him for now. As soon as I get home I will take a video for you.

    *Update*
    I recently returned home a bit early. Not surprised to find he hasn't accepted food while I was gone. Not seeing him in a while, he does look a lot skinnier than he was. A little slower moving, and still in interested in food.
    Photos will come later today!

    I have a very similar problem with one of my Geckos. When I first got them, she was eating fine, but not long after she stopped eating all together. I have only seen her eat two or three times in the last 3 months. The last time being just 3 days ago when she ate 2 Locusts. She is a bit picky and won't eat crickets, but she loves locusts. She doesn't seem to poop either. She has lost a bit of weight and I'm really worried. I wasn't sure wether to make a new thread or just post in this one, but the symptoms are practically identical (minus the deformity). I have two Leos and the other one has had problems in the past but is fine now and eats like a right little monster!

    Posting another update, even though I probably won't get many responses. He went to the vet yesterday, they had him tube fed. Of course he put up his normal don't touch my mouth fight..screaming his little head off. But after he was tube fed I let him in his enclosure to relax. That night I offered some super worms, and he hunted them! He ate two good sized supers for me, those plus the good from the tube feeding. Hopefully this will boost his appetite. Thank you everyone who has given me some tips and tricks!

    Hope that your leo continues to eat now.

    In the "old days" Geckos Unlimited was much more active.
