    Ok, so the previous owner fed him/ her Dubia roaches until he/her was full, every day and dusted every 2 days with Miner All indoor. I feed him/her 3 dubia roaches and sometimes 5 mealworms every 2 days, dust every 3 days with Miner All indoor. As said earlier, my leopard gecko has very light pores and bulges. So I’m not sure whether or not it’s a male or female. I think she is a female.

    It appears that the whole belly is white but there is a streak of blue? in the middle.

    What is your gecko's name? The blue streak is probably a vein or an artery.

    I can't tell the gender from your photo. Please take a close up photo of her vent with good lighting. (That's the place poops come from.)

    In this photo there does seem to be a white mass on the left side. (?)

    A 4 year old leo only really needs to eat 2x per week, like on Monday and Thursday. Lightly dust with Miner-All Indoor at both those feedings. Cut back her food to 2 dubia and 3-4 mealworms at those feedings. Make sure she always has fresh water available.

    I'll reply to your other thread later today.

    Her name is Rio. So 2 dubia nymphs or ? There’s a brownish thing in her cloaca, is it supposed to be there or is it leftover feces?

    Thanks for sharing Rio's name! There should be no brownish leftover feces on her cloaca. Usually that does not happen if she has fresh water to drink.

    Does someone at your house have a better cell phone? We need to see a clear photo of her belly. Your last photo is blurry and seems to show an egg. ???

    Since Rio is overweight she only needs to eat 2x per week, like on Monday and Thursday.
    1. Feed her only 2 dubia and 3-4 mealworms at those feedings. NO MORE.
    2. Lightly dust with Miner-All Indoor at both those feedings.
    3. Make sure she has fresh water.

    Amended:
    Normal feces are dark brown.

    Green feces could indicate a serious problem! I would collect the feces and take it to a vet within 24 hours.

    #2---Fecal Sample Collection Procedure
    Bring a fresh fecal sample to the vet's right away. A vet will let you know if what you see is an issue. In my experience, the gecko (patient) needs to be seen before a fecal will be performed.

    Sometimes if you massage a gecko's belly while he's on some piece of plastic, poop will happen quickly!

    Here's how my exotics vet recommends collecting a stool sample:

    1. Place a piece of clean plastic where your gecko usually poops. If your gecko poops somewhere else, take the poop to the vet anyway. Some poop is better than no poop!
    2. As soon as your gecko has passed some poop and urates, but without physically touching the sample, place the feces and urates directly onto a clean plastic bottle cap. (Vet has fecal sample containers if you can stop by first.)
    3. Then place the bottle cap with fecal sample directly into a plastic ziploc bag. (Do NOT use paper towels or newspaper because those will absorb some of the feces necessary for a proper culture.)
    4. Refrigerate this sample...unless you are taking the sample to your vet immediately. Do NOT freeze it.
    5. Keep the sample cool enroute to the vet.
    6. Take this fecal sample to your vet within 24 hours of collecting...the sooner the better!

    [There are two types of fecals: fecal float and direct smear tests. For geckos, ask the vet whether both tests should be run.]

    No I don’t think it’s a worm, it’s sort of greenish-yellowish. Here’s the pic.

    Please re-read my last post. I was editing while you were posting.

    Rio's probably female.

    I haven’t fed Rio in a while( at LEAST 2 weeks) since it’s the winter and she’s in a dormant state and all, so why is she pooping? What is the cause of the green poop?

    I really don't know what could cause green poop.

    It's time for Rio's wellness check-up with the greenish yellow feces sample.
