    Ah, those little buggers. I know ALL about them (had a class on invasive species and potential threats, they are NOT fun). At this point, though, I think he may just be getting ready to shed. I checked on him again, and his body seems washed out compared to his tail and the very tip of his snout.

    Also, has your gecko ever made a chirpy noise before? It's not a crackly noise or a snorting sound, it's more like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XewuPUjF-fc (It's towards the end).

    That sounds like an interesting class!

    It sounds to me like he is coming up on a shed. I know that some people notice a lack of appetite in their leos when they are approaching a shed. If this is the case, I wouldn't change anything in his environment now because a shed is already pretty stressful. Just keep offering food and maybe even try offering some new options if you are able to get your hands on some. Do get a thermostat as soon as possible though. Be cautious with the moss, especially since it seems that he might shed soon. Some people have had their leos become impacted most likely as a result of their leos consuming some of the moss while removing their shed.

    I've never personally heard my leo chirp so I can't contribute, but maybe others have. On the other hand, he does grunt while being handled. I interpret this as a sign of discomfort so I only handle him when necessary. I've gotta say though, it sounds pretty cute lol.

    Ziggy made a funny noise one time when I was holding him, kind of a grunt/crackle thing, but it was the way I was holding him. Hasn't made any noises since. Signs of shedding an almost ghost like appearance


    Like this. He's been in that hide for about 3 days now.

    A picture is worth a thousand words! Yes, he's shedding. Hopefully, tomorrow morning he will be done and back to his old self.
    If this is your first shed, you should be forewarned to check his eyelids and toes to make sure there is no stuck shed in those areas, or any other parts of his body. He'll probably be fine, your moist hide looks good, but this is the biggest shedding concern which we all experience once or twice.

    I know the drill! He shed last month and I looked him over really well and it was a clean shed. I had a Leo once before, its been 10 years since I've had one but I never forgot what to do! He did eat 1 rather big Dubia, about 10 phoenix worms (they're a little small) and a hornworm just now for me

    Ok, that makes much more sense! Thanks for the picture as well, it cleared up what I was confused about. To be completely honest, I thought Ziggy was a snow morph at first! Hopefully Lavi will get back to his usual chipper self and I'll have the chance to get in there and clean/rearrange some things. Thanks for all the help, everyone!

    No he's a normal. I have been looking into getting another one later on down the road, just don't know what kind of morph I want to get. Halloween came early for him, guess that's his costume

    I'm sorry Jess,
    I just saw the picture and skimmed the post too quickly, assuming it was from the original poster.
    My bad!

    When I get another Leo I'm going to wait until I can get my hands one of those new Lemon-Frost Morph's, they are absolutely amazing !
