    Let me know whether she was able to shed completely on her own.

    To be honest im not sure if she did shed. I saw her on the wetbox so I assumed she was shedding. I checked her now and her markings seem to be lot brighter (like her tail for example) She has never had problem with shedding so we'll see for sure if she has shed when the old skin well.. turns to feces and she poops it. Otherwise she seems pretty okay, I saw her last night taking bit calcium and vitamins. She is a lot less bloated and looks normal on stomach. Still pretty scared of me unfortunately, but when im handling her she's quite calm. One thing that still is weird is her dark colors. I don't remember what morph she was but I try to find her papers and check if this is normal to the morph. She used to be bright yellow and her head and at the start of her tail had orange. Now the orange has turned into pretty dark brown/orange. Are there morphs that look naturally like this or just what could be the cause? She is definetly not cold so that's not what's causing it. (Colors look bit brighter in the photos than in reality.)

    : Often the only sign we see of a shed is brighter colors than before. Leos like to shed in private! After all they don't want to be eaten by some predator during this time.

    Morph patterns change into different colors and patterns as a leo matures. Maybe @acpart can stop by to comment?

    Have you tried talking to your leo in a quiet voice and moving slowing as you approach her enclosure?

    Taming your Leo
    Leos can be very skittish.
    • Let your leo settle in. He should be eating and pooping regularly before trying this.
    • When approaching his cage, always speak quietly. Move slowly so as not to startle him.
    • Avoid sudden movements. They will spook your leo.
    • Next visit place your hand in the cage; see whether he'll walk up to it.
    • Try that on several different days.
    • See whether he'll come up and sniff/lick your fingers. Maybe he'll climb on your hand.
    • If this is going well, gently place your fingers underneath his belly and lift him.
    • Judge your progress by your leo's reaction.
    • Remember baby steps. Don't rush it.

    Here I am! I have seen orange-y leopard geckos that change to a brown kind of burnt orange. I think some of them just end up that way.

    Thanks for answering Aliza. I actually found her papers but is just said that her morph is "hypo". Good to know it can be normal. I have been gentle with handling cause I have seen how scared she is. I don't scoop her up right away but I put my hand in there first so she can calm down a little. I gotta try the talking next time. I lifted her yesterday to give her a small bath so she doesn't get dehydrated and to take those pictures. But thanks a lot for help once again, I'll keep posting if something comes up.

    She just seems to get darker, like her life energy is getting sucked out of her. I have done all I can, her behavior is quite normal but I don't think the color change is a good thing. And yes she shed. The skin she ate came out at night but she hadn't digested it. I just remember my crested gecko who became all gray before she died. I wish I would get her to eat so she would maybe feel better.

    How long has it been since your leo ate anything?

    Have you checked her warm dry hide temperatures lately? (31.1-33.3*C)?

    As long as her behavior is quite normal, I wouldn't worry so much. It's difficult to judge things like this from far away.

    You know your leo best!

    The temperatures are normal (about 31.5c) Last time she ate for sure was at end of march. It's true I may worry too much. She is coming out of her hiding spot every night and goes around her tank just like my other geckos do. So her behavior is pretty normal, she just doesn't eat. But in the other hand she isn't losing any weight. I don't want to repeat the mistake I made with my crested gecko that's propably why I worry bit too much.

    I understand.

    The reason why she's not eating may be ovulation. Many female leos stop eating because of this, but they hang in there and maintain their weights.
