hello, i keep my leopard gecko, sparky, in a tank on top of my desk. he’s a juvenile, so he’s kinda small. yesterday, my dad was moving it and didn’t see his heating rock plugged in and my poor gecko fell to the floor and got smushed by his rock. he’s alive and alright, but he won’t walk on his back legs and drags them. i dont have the money to take him to the vet, what should i do? i’m extremely worried about him.

He may have a temporary trauma and be OK in a few days. He may have damaged his spinal cord and be paralyzed. He can still have a decent life. There's nothing much you can do for him and I don't think the vet can do much either. Hopefully he's still able to poop and pee. If he has trouble catching his food you'll have to hand feed him. Good luck with him. Just keep an eye on him and make sure he's eating and pooping
