    I have never seen many of my geckos drink. Are you sure your leo never uses the water dish? If you provide only the water dish do you still consistently see urates?

    I'm not sure there's much you can do. Just don't mess with her and keep checking discretely. If you get worried about her because it seems different than last year, contact a vet.

    I think that's a good move. The CHE dries out the air and can dehydrate the gecko. I don't mind no AC because I like to know it's summer in the summer. I have a ceiling fan which makes things much...

    I've always felt that if the ambient temps are OK for humans, they are OK for leopard geckos. If they're too cold, they can stay in their warm hides where the hide will trap the air so it will be...

    I'm not sure I understand the problem. Are you saying that the floor and air temps are the same day and night? If that's the case, it's fine. If it's otherwise, please provide more details.

    Put the gecko cage somewhere that the beagle can't access. It probably won't even know the gecko is there. We have 2 cats and it works fine.

    different people do different things, but in general leopard geckos (which is what I assume you have) need belly heat 24/7, so a het mat is best. Heat lamps can also dry out the air too much.

    She just looks very well fed. I can't tell from the belly picture if there are eggs in there or not. If there are, they will look like a pair of white ovals that just about fill the belly.
