    Default Leopard Gecko Has Abnormal Chest Color


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My 4ish year old female leopard gecko has been avoiding her warm hide for weeks now. It is starting to get colder where I live. Her warm floor temp is always between 85-89 degrees fahrenheit. She has now to begin to refuse food the past two times I've offered it. She has not pooped in 8-12 days. Last poop she did was normal. I have attached another picture of her underside. I thought that her upper half looked dark/abnormal? It has looked like this for a few weeks now. I did post about this a week or so ago, but I am getting worried. Thanks for any help!

    If you're really concerned, take her to a reptile vet. It's not unusual for some geckos to eat less when it gets cold and sometimes to go to the cold side and sleep (brumate) for weeks or more. The upper abdomen does look a little dark but I don't know to what extent that's a cause for concern.

    Okay, I just tend to get overly worried. I was scared it could be internal bleeding even though she hasn't had a fall of any sorts.
