    Default Leopard Gecko Has a Dark Upper Abdomen?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My 4ish year old female leopard gecko has been avoiding her warm hide for days as far as I've seen. It is starting to get colder where I live as Fall weather has finally arrived. Her warm floor temp is always between 85-89 degrees fahrenheit. She still has an appetite and she is fed every 4ish days. Roughly twice a week alternating calcium, calcium d3, and vitamin with no d3. She poops once every 7-8 days and the poops have all been normal. She's a bit of a cute little chunk... I have attached a picture of her underside. I thought that her upper half looked dark/abnormal? I wanna get some more opinions, thanks!

    It looks within normal limits to me. Some leopard geckos go to the cold side and brute themselves. I don't think it has as much to do with temperature as it does with the amount of ambient daylight decreasing with the advancing season
