He ended up spitting it out after about 2 hours. I pre-killed the cricket, just incase, I didnt want it biting him. He didnt wiggle when I picked him up this time, which worries me.

    I don't know why he's not perking up. :/

    @acpart What do you think is going on with this young AFT?

    No change this morning, moved about 3 inches last night in total. I placed him in his warm hide, and he walked out of it and stayed there all night.

    I hope he's brumating.

    What do you think about giving him a warm/tepid bath for about 15 minutes? Keep the water temperature about 30*C. That should help with hydration!

    A leopard gecko's preferred body temperature (PBT) = 86*F. That's 30*C. That same water temperature would be alright for your AFT.

    The poor little guy didnt make it through today, I found him curled in a little ball with his eyes open.

    Thanks for sharing, Rocketeer. I'm so sorry for your loss. May he rest in paradise.

    Maybe he had something wrong internally that we couldn't see.

    Here's a daffodil to ease your pain.
