Hi. I got my leopard gecko around 4 months. She is 1 year old, and female. She ate crickets, i think from early age, because she refused everything else. First 3 months she was okay, ate well, skin stripped once, and fine. Now, it’s third week now, that she didnt ate. I tried to give her worms and (frozen) baby mouse, and she refuses all. I tried warm bath as well, and tried to kind off kindly massage her belly. We notice, that in her latest poop was lot of the substrate she got, (terarium sand-we changed it now) I didnt notice she pooped now. I dont think she loses weight, but im scared. Maybe she is ovulating, but i dont know. What do you think?

It's not unusual for females to stop eating around now for awhile. She looks OK to me in the picture. I can't tell from the other picture whether or not she's ovulating. Glad you got rid of the sand. Keep offering food and try not to worry.
