    This breaks my heart. I'm so sorry this happened. Take him to the vet ASAP

    I really appreciate everyone's honesty, time and heart-felt advice.
    Unfortunately we lost Basil last night, in my hands as I was about to feed him. When I took him out of the cage all the fight was gone. My poor boy. I never knew o could become so attached to my reptiles. It truly is devastating. I will be letting the pet store know. They are a small town store and very reputable. I'm sure they will take this seriously.
    In the mean time I will be sending sweet Basil in for testing so I can know for sure that this was crypto.
    In the future I will adopt a leo who needs a good home.
    Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time and kindness.

    I'm so sorry Basil passed away. You did more than most in this situation. Thanks for planning to have his body tested and for alerting the pet store if you discover that Basil or his sister test positive for cyrpto.

    Here's a rose to ease your pain.

    This may be a weird question, but did you get him from PetCo around December? I have unfortunately lost all three babies we bought from them. The last one, Rose, had a story very similar to Basil. I took her to the vet so many times and I was told that there was nothing they could do. Her stomach was identical to yours when she passed in my hands, right after I syringe fed her. We’ve thrown away everything she and the other two touched, just in case. Rose tried so hard to hold on, but she just couldn’t fight the sickness she had.

    No we didn't get them from a petco but a local pet store. Now we have two more young geckos, both adopted. I will never purchase from a pet store again
