    Exclamation Leopard gecko feet are red and painful!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My leopard gecko used to have red feet caused by his reptile carpet so I switched him to eco earth and they went away but then they came back and they are even more red! My leopard gecko will sit down and put his feet in the air, I can tell its hurting him! What do I do? Is it the substrate? He is prone to stuck shed, I have 3 more geckos but none of them have it or get stuck shed, what is happening??

    I wonder whether your leo is allergic to something?

    Have you tried ceramic tiles or non-adhesive shelf liner as a substrate?

    If Eco Earth's coco fiber is deep, it can prevent heat from reaching your leo.

    Maybe, I haven’t tried either of those but maybe I should, and its not deep maybe 1-2 cm’s. I also had him on paper towels and they were red then too, so idk :l

    Has there been some progress on troubleshooting your leo's red feet?
