    Elizabeth, I may be wrong. But in that picture it looks to me that Yuzu is flattened down absorbing some belly heat. You can see the hind legs slightly splayed out. I suspect that may account for...

    Ah! My mistake. I apologize!

    Though my comments about cohabitation still stand. Leopard Geckos can be kept in multiples together but it is generally not recommended.

    It would be like us trying to wake up and eat in the middle of the night. While it can be done. It's not ideal.

    I think you getting the variety pack is a much better idea. Also, an adult Leo will not want to (and probably should not) be eating every day. Every 2-3 days is our norm as ours simply will not eat...

    Might be worth a try. Also, make sure to clean the area where the poop was well. Preferably with a reptile specific safe cleaner. They do like going again where there is still a scent.
