    Default Too thin? Or am I worrying too much?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I just got Donovan on Friday evening. He's eaten twice so far (first time he at 3 superworms and the second time he ate about 5 small Dubia roaches with Calcium D3).

    He's somewhere between 18 months and 2 years and is about 17 cm long.

    I'm thinking he's a bit on the thin side and but I'm not really a good judge at this point since he's the first Leopard Gecko I've ever had.

    Okay so leopard geckos store fat in their tails, is there any way you can get a picture of his full body? The tail should be as thick as it's neck, that's a quick hack to see if he's a healthy weight.
    Hi, I'm Kate and I love animals. I'm the proud owner of Stacy, the 11 year old dog, Azymondias (Zym), the 1 year old leopard gecko, and Moonlily (Moon), the 9 month old leopard gecko. Right now those are my only pets, but later on in the year I will be expanding my menagerie lol.

    OK, so last night I switched out the UTH to an Ultratherm and, as a result, had to remove everything (including him) from his enclosure.

    Turns out he's been preparing to shed. But I was able to get some good pictures of him in his hide.

    Ah, yes, he was shedding, but he looks like he's perfectly healthy.
