    Default 2 leopard geckos not pooping?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    i have 2 male leopard geckos that havenít been pooping for a while :/ for the both of them itís maybe been 8+ days. they both have eaten and had plenty of water and havenít acted weird or shown any sign of discomfort or illness. they both shed recently too. both of them pretty much snooze n sploot all day so theyíre not super active which makes me think it may be metabolism related? i have a female gecko as well who is super active and climbs about and poops normally.


    both male geckos get 10-12 mealworms dusted with vitamins or calcium powder every 2 days.
    they both have under tank heating (85-90 degrees consistently) and humidity is usually around 40%

    They may have hidden their poops well or they're "taking a break" from it. Show them some of those late night Colace commercials that reference pineapples and hedgehogs in terms of how it shouldn't feel (this is really true!) and maybe it will help.

    How old are these male leos?

    Please share the exact brand & name of supplements you use. How often are you using each supplement?

    Can you bump up ground temps under their warm dry hides to 88-92*F?
