    The cave is the cool hide. I made it when doing up her tank. The warm hide is the grey rock ceramic one, which I bought. She has a humid hide under the piece of flat wood, which is lined with sphagnum moss.

    The more you put your hand in the tank, pull her out, etc the more stressed she is going to feel. Itís best to leave her in her tank without bothering her for at least 3 days, aside from adding water to her water dish and humidity hide. Sheís chunky😁, I think she will be fine for 3 days without food. Keep us updated

    And her cool side should be a little lower more like 75. It’s difficult to get a good temps if the tank isn’t long enough. The tank looks like it may be to small. How long is it? Of course your room temperature would have to be 70-75 in order for her cool side to be right.

    These work better for them because they are longer and you donít have to scare them by sticking your hand above. I donít know where you live but if you have access to Exo Terra, it may be a good idea if possible. This is the Exo terra 36 long. If you can go longer, even better. Please excuse our garage floor. It needs help😉

    She's in a 24" long by 12" by 12". The ambient in my room is 27C, so it can't get any cooler than that. In her cave hide it's 25-26C due to the tank material.

    She's gone without food for 2 weeks. I'll place her back in her tank once i'm sure she's not impacted or anything, her tank is a bioactive set-up. excavator clay + eco earth mix.

    You have you in a cardboard litterly without heat?

    It could be many reasons why she isnít eating. Not having the right temperatures is only one. Aside from leopard geckos Iíve seen my reptiles in general go without food simple because their cool side wasnít cool enough. They wonít eat until itís lower. Just saying, only a possibility

    I don't think the temp being not cool enough is an issueĖ the breeder stays in the same area I do and didn't use a heat mat because the ambient air temp is 25-28C where we are. She's been healthy for about a year and got as chunky as you see in the photos before she came to me.

    I'm in a tropical country, we don't get full on winters, just colder months where it rains everyday.

    I added a heat mat because I'm having her in a bioactive tank and wanted to be safe. Cooler temp is not an issue.

    I just want to know if she is impacted from her belly, otherwise I'll assume she's going into brumation right when I got her so I can just leave her alone to sleep as she likes.

    Ive never seen a leopard gecko go into brumation so someone else can help you with that.

    I do there's there's a high chance she's brumating as we've had our hottest months (ambient was 30-32C in our 'summers') right before the cool period (dropped to 26-27C), but I could be wrong.

    Do you think she's impacted?

    The only way to know for sure if sheís impacted is by taking her to a vet for a radiograph. Iíve never seen a Leo go into brumation, so I canít say itís true that they do.
