    Hey everyone, Above is a link to a gif i created of my new supergiant gecko I got a couple days ago. In the video you can see when he picks up his back leg it appears to tremble while walking forward. I noticed him doing this with all legs when i first got him out of the shipping box. He doesnt do this all the time I had only noticed it while watching the video playback. Is this normal for the to do on occasion? I am worried it could be MBD? I received him from steve sykes at geckos etc.

    I would just keep an eye on him for awhile. It could be just recovery from the shipping. I can't imagine Steve Sykes would send you a gecko with MBD.

    Try reposting your link. I can't see any supergiant walking around.

    I swear they have rubbery feet. I’ve seen this all leos to some degree and so it’s obviously not MBD.

    Hi ~

    Here's a link about leg tremors. Maybe some of it applies to your super giant.

    I have read zux’s post and found a good comparison. She uses the same products as Zux(uvb and Arcadia calcium with mag etc) , yet you see the same quivers. It’s not always very noticeable but if you look closely at about 1:46 and 4:44

    Ibutters16- Please don’t panic and start dusting everything like frosty the snowman. If you read under the comment section you will notice the owner stated she dusted consistently with zoo med calcium with d3 and placed a calcium dish and the Leo end up passing away. Could this be a case of too much?
