    It sounds like you have pretty normal husbandry, you may want to lower the amount of dusting on the crickets and mealworms though. Is the lump hard or soft, is it anchored or does it move or is it...

    That's very odd, and definitely not typical behavior. Make sure your husbandry is okay, ie temps, hides and food. Is your leo eating and drinking well? Do you give calcium weekly?

    It's interesting to say the least, her limbs really do look bony. If she is still pooping regularly then maybe it is not impaction. You could always try a warm soak for 10 min 2x a day for a couple...

    Hmmm

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the weight gain as of right now. It isn't like you're feeding her wax worms or really fatty insects to begin with. She may just be in a period of rapid growth at the...

    Hello! Sorry to hear about Cusp's little lump there. To me, it most likely looks like an abscess or tumor. If it is an abscess they may be able to drain this easily. If it is a tumor, I am unsure...

    I am not sure what this is. However, it does not appear to be near any organ or crucial area. It may be a lacking fat deposit? Probably just a genetic abnormality. Regardless, keep an eye out, make...

    Unfortunately it sounds like your leo is dealing with some tough stuff here. You may want to question the store/place you got her from, because maybe they have a rep for parasites or stick tail....

    Yes. Remove mealworms when they turn into darkling beetles. The logic behind this: darkling beetle shells are very hard, and can cause impaction over time due to the build up of hard chitin...

    No. Do not attempt to use anything you find outside for your leo. This will introduce bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can harm and kill your leo. Use paper towels, or tiles, or repti-carpet.
