    This is likely an adult Murphy's patternless gecko. Google some images and see if you agree.

    Sorry you're having such a problem. So you've tried holding the gecko and pushing on the bulges? This should make the hemipenis stick out and the sperm plugs will be sticking out of that. I did...

    Yes, it's safe because I don't think it falls apart into particles. It's also heavy and once you install it, it's probably not coming out. There are also reptile suction cup hammocks and people...

    In my opinion, if his behavior is normal, he's eating and everything else looks OK (i.e. he's not bloated, lethargic, straining), there's not much to do but wait and hopefully soon you'll see a HUGE...

    When I had fewer crestie and gargoyle cages, I would relocate everyone to the basement during heat waves. There also may be small cooling units that you could invest in.

    These guys are much more hardy than you'd imagine. I live in New England in the US without AC. In the summer, on occasion, the temperature can get into the high 90'sF. Sometimes I put ice packs in...

    Maybe it's time to get it tested. I agree it didn't make sense to get it tested if it wasn't affecting her and hadn't changed but based on your description it seems that now it is. It could be an...

    I got a juvenile leo (weighed about 14 grams) from a reptile expo where I was vending and when I got her home I realized she had MBD. This one may have been younger than yours is. Seven years later...

    I really can't see the picture very well but I think it's likely that it's a piece of stuck shed on the mouth. Mouth rot is inside the mouth. See if you can pull it off with your fingernails or a...

    Sorry, I don't have a clue. Maybe consider the vet visit before she poops, or make an appointment for 3 days from now and hope for he ben (so to speak).

    I've had that happen as well. Most of the time I can remove the plugs (you mean the V-shaped pores, right?). With one of my geckos, removing the plugs resulted in a wound that I had to apply silver...

    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.
