    Default Eye Sunken In? Not Sure.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My gecko, Ren, has been on a hunger strike for about 1.5 weeks now. I think it may be because of the wether heating up. During this time she did have a complete and healthy shed. She is still drinking and producing urates. As it is warming up where I live, I have given her some water with a little dropper and she happily drank up some water droplets. I do believe she is drinking on her own as well. I was looking at her today and noticed her eye looked maybe odd? I may have just not noticed before, does this look normal to any of you?

    Okay, I think I'm just being a bit paranoid since she's gone off food. Thanks for your input!

    The eye looks fine to me as well. She may be off food because she's ovulating. It's pretty amazing how long these geckos can go without eating and have no permanent ill effects.

    Okay, thanks! How long do they ovulate for typically?

    They can ovulate for months, but I don't find that they necessarily don't eat for months.
