Ok so my female gargoyle gecko I got about 2 months ago is acting weird. She is 3 years old.
I placed her with my other pair maybe a month ago, All was good. She was healthy and eating.
They are in a 36x36x24, kept at 75* and 50 to 70% humidity, however I have been misting less this past month but nothing to cause dehydration.
I am wondering what does she have.

I saw her near the ground for a few days so I though she would just lay.
But then I noticed she had her mouth full of dirt and didn't eat or drink.

She opens her mouth sometimes, I didn't see any calcium sacks but I managed to dislodge the earth in her mouth and make her drink a little.

I am currently giving her a soaking in warm water.

What should I do guys?

She doesn't move at all and its really worrying me.

I moved this to the correct section, so hopefully you'll get more help here.

I personally would take the gecko to a vet. None of those symptoms sound good. Sunken eyes usually means dehydration and I would be concerned that she's impacted from having dirt in her mouth.

I agree. This sounds like a problem that needs to be addressed by a vet. Impaction is definitely a worry here as is severe dehydration. [emoji20]
