    He looks healthy but the watery/light brown poop may be a sign of a possible problem. Don't toss the poops, put them in a sandwich/snack bag and put it in the fridge, more poop the better to do a really through fecal exam. Don't wrap them in paper towels or toilet paper either. If you have a glove, pick them up once they've dried and throw it in the bag. I picked up fresh poop the other night and boy did it feel weird and smell

    Oh and he's very pretty

    Thank you, dear! Lore, his "sister" (an older leopard gecko my brother convinced my parents to get but I wound up with) is very pretty, too. Granted, I have no idea what morph she exactly IS, but still. 8 inches long, and eats 15-20 mealworms a day. No problems with this little lady! ...well, aside from getting her to hold still long enough for a picture. I'm still working on that. She's very inquisitive and is in everything the second she's out of her enclosure, but I love her curious self to bits.

    And I wish I'd thought to do that. I normally spot clean his tank for poop the second I spot it and throw it out. It stank a bit more than usual, so I got it out of his tank ASAP and threw it away. He hasn't pooped since. GAH I feel like a moron! >_<" I hope he poops again soon, but sine he's not eating, I doubt it will happen.

    You can always take a picture of Lore and start a thread in the morphs section, someone will chime in eventually and tell you what she could be. I'm no expert but the little guy looks a lot like this one:

    Give granted his colors will change the older he gets.

    As far as poops go, it's no big deal, hopefully he will poop again, even if it's just a little bit. I worked in nursing homes so if poop doesn't look or smell right, I save it. Sucks geckos aren't like dogs where they can get a sample at the vet's office.....

    He certainly doesn't look too skinny or anything, so hopefully it's just a temporary glitch that he'll bounce back from.

    Yeah, I work in a lab. If something smells off, it's bad and needs to be sterilized and pitched ASAP. Otherwise, we could wind up with some sort of super-bacteria running around! XD (OK not really funny when you think about it, but still). I hope he poops for me soon. By now, that poop would probably be too desiccated to be useful even if I found it in the trash somehow.

    And huh, that does look an awful lot like Lavi... I just assumed Albino Tremper. I supposed we'll have to wait and see! Heck, the breeder I'm going to talk to might be able to tell me.

    That's what I'm hoping for, @amsdadtodd. For all I know, he could have had parasites when I go him from Petsmart and they're just now manifesting... though I REALLY hope that's not the case. By the way, that thread you posted about the females slowing down their eating when ovulating was SUPER informative. I have a girl as well, so it's nice to know what might be coming up/what to be on the lookout for.

    And thanks again for all the help everyone! I really appreciate all the tips, pointers, and support I've been getting. I'll definitely keep everyone updated on Lavi's status, and eventually will get a non-blurry photo of Lore to show everyone.

    HEY GUYS I SAW HIM EAT TODAY! Granted, it was only one mealworm, but here's the thing: the mealworm he ate was freshly molted (I could tell because the molt was in his dish, which was promptly removed). He didn't touch the other ones I offered him! Any ideas just what might be going on here?

    Is the color of the dish one which provides more contrast with the freshly molted mealworm? I've noticed when my girls are chasing crickets, they easily lose them on dark colored tiles, but readily spot them on light ones, or on white paper towels.

    I thought about that, but the molted mealworms are only slightly lighter than the ones that aren't. Even mealworms that aren't molted pop really well against the bowl. The bowl itself is a dark brown, and the mealworms stand out against it very well, especially when dusted with the herp-cal and herpivite. I can't imagine this would be the problem, since he had no issue tracking them down before.

    He's going in tomorrow (I was able to scootch the appointment date up a bit) to get looked at, so we'll know then.

    This is the dish I use for worms. It's not good as escape proof but he can see them easily to gobble them up.
