    Sorry your leopard gecko isn't doing so well right now. The best advice I can give you, because of the eye, is to take him to a reptile vet. It's likely he has an abscess or other type of infection...

    Remember that leopard geckos don't usually ovulate once and produce eggs once, they often ovulate and may lay multiple times. Most of my female leopard geckos aren't eating much though no one has...

    If you want to know whether the isopods are there, take out a big spoonful of the substrate, put it in a bowl and take a good look. I got some white isopods maybe 10 years ago which have now...

    Interestingly, some of my "largest" geckos (though not 120 grams) haven't been eating much for weeks and they haven't lost any weight!

    He's a big boy. I've had big geckos before who weighed a lot. As long as they have the ability to hunt and to be active I don't worry about fat/just big. As a society we're consumed (so to speak)...

    I know that there is a lot of information about how stressed leopard geckos get, but I find them to be quite resilient. It's true that they may not eat for a few days (or more) after being...

    I haven't seen this with ovulating females, but I've seen other geckos have funny behavior changes for no reason, so it may be within the range of behavior that just happens sometimes.

    It looks like a healthy well-fed gecko who, hopefully, is getting calcium and vitamin D3 in addition to his mealworms. Sometimes they go on hunger strikes and they can last awhile. It's fine. Keep...
