Hello, I'm new to this forum.
First , sorry that i'm not good at english (I've tried my best)

here the case.
I and my friend have bought a baby leoprad gecko at auguts 2021. our geckos have hacthed at may as it wrote on the label.

PICTURE A: compared to a cutter refill box (its about 9-10 cm ).
this above picture A is my friend,s gecko
he feeds his gecko once a week (even in every 2 weeks) since the begining.

PICTURE B : compared to a cutter refill box (its about 9-10 cm ).
My gecko have normal size, I feeds him everyday when he just a baby gecko. after a year later I gave him food in every 3 days. maybe he turn to be a bit fat. but' compare to other gecko it has quite normal size.

QESTION ABOUT GECKO A :
1. can it grow into nomal size if he got proper care and food, as its 1 year old gecko ?
2. how the best way to treat this malnutrition gecko ?

since my friend give his leopard gecko under my care, I'm worried that it never grow into normal size

thank you

/\ /\ This is the best way to care for a leopard gecko as he grows up.

Maybe he can still grow to "normal" size IF you significantly increase his feeding NOW.
Feed the malnourished leo 3x per week. After he gains weight, reduce his feedings to 2x per week.

You're welcome!

Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Seyran!

  1. What brand & frequency of powdered supplements (calcium with vitamin D3 & multivitamins) do you use for your leo?
  2. What are you feeding YOUR leo?
  3. Are you keeping both leos in separate enclosures?
  4. Please share images of their enclosures.
