    Hi! I moved her water bowl close to her warm hide. I gave her a few more crickets over the span of the week last week and she eagerly ate them all. She had a total of 4. On sunday she did her first poop! It was normal looking. Her urate was in two bits, one was white while the other was orange. Im not too concerned as half was white. Shes been in her warm hide and moving around her tank at night. She just had two more crickets and she chased and ate them up! Thank you for the help!

    I have one question regarding heating for my male geckos tank. He has a heat mat hooked up to a thermostat. the substrate is reptile carpet. His is set at only 87*F. When the thermostat reads 87* my temp gun reads it as 91/92*! When i kick it up to 88* it reaches 94*. Im not sure what is wrong. I thought it was the heat mat so I got a new one, same issue. I just bought a new thermostat and i placed the temperature probes next to each-other to see if it was my first thermostat. They both read the same incorrect temp. They both said 87* while the gun said 91*. I decided to check to make sure it wasn't them temperature gun by checking in one of my females tanks. Her thermostat read 88* and the gun read 89/90*. So i'm not sure what is wrong? The gecko in this tank is healthy, he eats, drinks, and poops normally. He's also active around his tank in the evenings. I don't know what to do but leaving it set at 87*F and knowings its likely actually 90* seems to be working thus far. Any ideas what could be the issue?

    You're SOOO welcome. What you did was PERFECT! POOP from this female: ! That's the best. The urate's orange half is probably due to some dehydration over her 3 month fast.

    I don't know what's wrong either. I've kinda sorta given up on my temp gun even though it's a reliable brand.

    Don't worry about your male's temp readings. Much leo health ultimately depends upon the observant eyes of the keeper. Each leo is different.
