    Need Help with my Leo

    I think I messed up BIG TIME. My leopard gecko didn't have a heat lamp or uvb until today (I'm not entirely sure how much uvb the repti basking lamp from zoo med provides), and she doesn't look well. She's not eating, and I've tried force feeding. She's shedding okay, but I worry I've done...

    Leopard gecko dropped tail

    One of my leopard geckos escaped last night (quite literally pushed through a tiny foam piece that covers a small opening in her tank - which is smaller than her body so i don’t even know how she got out), and we found her this morning with her tail dropped and a tiny cut on her side.

    Dragging hind legs

    I picked up my leopard gecko and noticed it was expelling a piece of sphagnum moss. After working it out, she has been dragging her legs when walking but if I put her on my shoulder she seems to be able to move her tear legs. I read somewhere that constipation/impaction might cause this. Just...

    New Gecko Hasn’t Pooped

    Hi! I am a first time reptile owner, and have a leopard gecko. They are for sure less than a year old and the guess is approx 4-6 months. It has been eating and seemingly behaving normally—sleeps most of the day, sometimes comes out, switches from warm to cool hide and vise versa, is active...

    Gecko squeals randomly?

    Hello! So a few months ago (4) I bought my second Leopard Gecko and they randomly squeal? It’s not chirping or barking or screaming so I have no idea why. Just random little squeals for a few seconds and when I check on them they’re just chilling so I don’t know if I should be worried?
