    The gecko does look a little skinny but not dangerously so. It's probably still a juvenile because it has the juvenile "pattern" of a patternless gecko. It certainly makes sense to have any new...

    I have some males where they don't seem to get them out by themselves. If you squeeze the bulges, the hemipenis will pop out and you can pull off the sperm plug. No bathing really necessary. ...

    Some geckos do get less active in the winter. I don't think it's necessarily temperature related, but may be due to ambient light. How do you know your gecko is sleeping (since it doesn't have...

    How long is your waiting list usually? Can you try 1 drop of mineral or cooking oil on the nose to see if it lubricates things so the gecko can poop (not sure that's the problem, but worth a try)?

    Remember also that gentle rubbing of the stuck shed will likely not get it off the eyes. It really requires tweezers or fingernails to get it off.

    I can't really see the spot. A closeup would be good. A lot of geckos slow way down on the eating at this time of year and it may have nothing to do with the spot on the nose.

    Just continue to be calm and consistent. I find that they get into certain behaviors for awhile and then it changes. It's not necessarily anything you did or didn't do or any kind of intellectual...

    There are some powdered foods you can mix up to feed him in puree fashion. I think one of them is called "Carnivore Care". It's also worth a vet visit to see if the parasite load has gotten too...

    It's worthwhile considering whether it's too hot on the perch under the basking light or whether there's some other reason he's not spending more time on that perch. It may be worthwhile adding a...

    Welcome! As far as I can tell from the picture (you may want to send another closeup if possible) this is not an AFT (African Fat Tail) gecko, but rather a leopard gecko. Based on its color it's an...

    I would call her a super hypo (you're right, no body spots), tangerine (good orange color), carrot tail - barely -, baldie (no head spots). Nice looking gecko!

    Enigmas usually hatch with a few blobby spots on head and body. This one is not an enigma. It looks like a gecko that just didn't get many of the parents' genetic "goodies". The coloring does have...
