    Automatic Formula Feeder?

    During summer I often am out of town over the weekends, and so I was wondering if anyone knows of any automatic formula feeders out there? In the past I’ve had a petsitter, but would be nice to explore other options.

    Hello! I'm new here, just had a question about the product listed above. For context, I have a 4 month old baby leopard gecko and just got this product.

    Alternatives to dubia roaches and crickets

    So I just got my leopard gecko, and for now I only have mealworms. I want to diversify my leos diet, but some of the commonly used feeders aren’t an option for me. My parents won’t allow crickets because of the noise/smell, and dubia roaches are illegal where I live. I’d like to know if there...

    New Leopard Gecko, interesting past feeding

    I just recently got a free leopard gecko off of Craigslist. I have done some research and I think I’m pretty good for now. I have him in his (I think) 40 gallon exo terra enclosure, his singular magnetic hide, his two bowls and then they had him on heat lamps. They had no bulbs in them so I used...

    Feeding tub layouts for hunting crickets!

    I finally settled on a female name Leilani. I think it fits her personality perfectly. I set up some paper towel roll half’s to act as tunnels and released crickets for her to hunt in an old 30g aquarium and she loved it. She was wiggling her tail like never seen before she was so excited to...

    Gecko too stressed to eat or just sick?

    This seems like a lot, I know, but I'm in a really strange position and my vet isn't being very helpful. I have a three year old crested gecko that I adopted from a breeder that was finished using him to spawn. I've had him since September, so 6 months. His illness: (you can skip this, it's...

    Leopard gecko not eating

    Since day one my leopard gecko has been a picky eater. One day he’ll love crickets, then the next day he won’t. There was a time when he loved wax worms and now he doesn’t. He absolutely hates mealworms and super worms, and I even tried giving him a pinky rat just to try something different and...

    Gecko poop

    Hello! I’m a happy gecko mom of 3 leopard geckos. As a mom, I overanalyze everything (including my geckos poop!) We received our geckos in September when they were about 4-5 months old. They all act healthy: love to be held every night, shed normally, drink water, and eat regularly. However...

    Is she in pain after eating??

    So I fed my gecko this morning and the crickets were a little bigger than usual. After I fed her she did something weird. She turns her head around and touched her nose to her side. She did it in both sides several times. I don’t know if she was in pain. ??
