    Continuous egg laying?

    Hello. I have a female crested gecko that I have had since she was about two months old. This year she turned 6. I have noticed for the past 8-10 months she has been laying eggs. This is a new behavior for her. She has never been around males so they are definitely dud eggs. My concern is the...

    Bubbles behind front legs?

    I have a 10 month old male leopard gecko. I noticed a little over a month ago he had two bubble like lumps, one behind each front leg. The bumps are very soft and don’t appear to cause him pain. I had read it could mean I was over supplementing so I decreased his supplements from every feeding...

    Help! Cricket mites???

    No wings and smaller than a fruit fly. The crickets are small but not babies by any means so I suppose they could be babies. They were REALLY small and the black ones were perfectly round. Are there any signs to look for in regards to mites just in case?

    Help! Cricket mites???

    I bought a small box of 20 crickets today for my leopard gecko. I tossed all of the crickets into a small 10 gallon tank then placed my gecko inside to see how he would do but he’s partially blind and had trouble seeing them. Instead I picked them up to prong feed. One of the crickets was...

    Stressed or Inquisitive?

    My gecko is a 5 year old female and I am trying to decide if she was stressed or just really curious during handling tonight. Let me preface by saying she is usually a very quiet gecko as well as very social and tolerant. When I took her out tonight she didn’t run from me but did give one loud...

    Supplementation Questions

    I am new to leo keeping and am finding A LOT of conflicting information about vitamin supplementation. One site said dust with calcium every feeding and add a multivitamin twice a week while other have said that a multivitamin like Reptivite is all you need when dusted daily. I guess my question...

    Blindness in leopard gecko?

    As far as I can tell my guy is a super hypo with a slight carrot tail (though the orange is spreading down as he is getting older now). He definitely isn’t blind as he can perceive movement but I think he can’t see in detail. Thanks for the info.

    Blindness in leopard gecko?

    My gecko is a 5-6 month old male and recently I have noticed some odd behaviors that make me believe he can’t see well. If tong fed he often misses the food even if I hold very still. Similarly if I get the “small” mealworms instead of the large he can’t seem to find them in the bowl even if...

    Sudden behavior change in gecko?

    Ok I might have to look around and see if I can find an underneath heater that can accomplish that. Since it’s bioactive the substrate is pretty thick to allow plant growth. I might have to keep some kind of over head heater. I’ve noticed that if I mist right before the light goes off that...

    Sudden behavior change in gecko?

    Oh wow that’s cooler than I would have thought. Do you happen to know what you keep your ground temperature at? Sorry to be nosey I just want to be the best keeper I can for my little guy.

    Sudden behavior change in gecko?

    I’ll definitely watch for dehydration. He had a nice big poo with plenty of hydration just yesterday. He doesn’t often come out when the light is on but I have found him enjoying the warmth of the basking rock right after the lights turned off. I have a different bulb that only reaches 87 would...
