    Default Leo looking like his chest is deflated

    All of a sudden my leopard gecko has been acting very strange. Not really coming out much staying in his hides even when we put crickets in. We moved him into a larger tank recently and since then his behavior has been odd. My husband noticed last night it looked like someone let all the air out of his lungs. Any advice? Is he sick?

    Judging by the bend I see in his left front elbow your leo may have MBD (metabolic bone disease).

    Early stage metabolic bone disease (MBD) symptoms include uneven (lopsided) gait, walking on one or both "elbows", bowed limbs, belly dragging, and an underbite.
    1. What is his supplement schedule: brand, name, & frequency you dust bugs & worms?
    2. Are you dusting his bugs & worms lightly (like a sprinkling of powdered sugar on a cake) or heavily (solidly covered with powder)?
    3. Please share a 1 minute long video of your leo walking about on some solid surface like a carpet.
    4. Size of enclosure
