    Question Breeding Season or Health Issue? Walking Perimeter of Enclosure Every Night


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, my leopard gecko Astara started to walk the perimeter of her enclosure every night starting about three days ago. She was eating just fine until then, but now she has no interest in food. A similar issue occurred last year where she refused food for about a month before returning back to her ravenous appetite. She isn't behaving any differently or exhibiting any other symptoms. She spends the daytime in her cave sleeping and comes out once lights are out to do her patrol a few times, head into a hide for a bit, then patrol again.

    I presume she's just looking for a mate, but I wanted to make sure this isn't perhaps a sign of some sort of illness just to be safe. Thanks!

    Female geckos do ovulate but I don't think they go into heat like mammals so she's probably not looking for a mate, however, females can behave differently when they're ovulating. Many of my geckos aren't eating much around now, so keep offering and it should resolve soon.
