Hi there, kindly sending a note can you please assist? Kindly mentioning my female leopard gecko doesn’t seem to be interested in food for the last two feedings.How should I handle this?

Note, she used to eat a ton since I got her three months ago from another pet owner. She’s with two other females. She seems frail. At night she’s doing this we are climbing of the glass

She looks to be in good health in the picture. Some females are ovulating now and don't eat much. If she's with 2 other females, there's always the chance she's being bullied, so keep an eye on them. Otherwise, keep offering and try not to worry.

Thank you for the response. Yes we have three geckos one of which is quite assertive. See pic. She eats now more food and has bit the others. If it’s bullying, how would that affect her eating?75537

If one is biting the others, they may be too scared and stressed to eat. Also, if one gecko follows another around and sits on it no matter were the other one tries to be, that's bullying as well. Consider either separating the more assertive one or the one that's not eating and see if things change.

Thank you. I wonder as well, could it be something related to her health.? For example her skin it’s dry at the top of her head (and body) 75544since we got her a couple months ago
