    Unhappy Running Out of Ideas


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey, guys.
    So, I got my leopard gecko on 2nd February this year (almost 2 weeks ago).
    He's 4 months year old and supposedly a Blizzard morph.
    I have 3 hides (humid, cool dry and warm dry), paper towels as substrate and around 90F (heat mat) on his warm dry hide.

    After I got him, I waited around 3 days til I started feeding him and he readily ate everything. I'm giving him mealworms and BSFL (I'm supplementing too). He hasn't shed once yet, but he pooped 3 times already but from what I was told (from asking around), his poop isn't looking normal. I'll attach some pics so that you can see.

    I can't find a reason to why this might be happening. I have the right temperature in his dry hide but my overall humidity is on the high side since I live in a very old and humid house. Can this be the problem?

    I'm looking into lowering the humidity (ordered a dehumidifier but it isn't getting the work done) but for the time being I can't do much more (already ordered a more powerful dehumidifier).

    I could really use some tips.

    First pic is his his last poop (today's one), second picture is his first poop.

    If anything, the picture on the left looks a little like there are undigested parts of what he ate in it. The poop on the right looks fine. If he's eating a new kind of feeder, it isn't unusual for the poops to look different at first. Give it a few more poops and see if things resolve.
