Can leopard geckos survive falls?
As others have already said, leopard geckos are not built to take a large fall. One gecko may take a fall from a few feet and be fine while another falls from the same height and dies. That is a terrible way for a breeder to give an example of a gecko being “hardy” by saying they can take large falls well.
What does it mean when a leopard gecko has bubbles in his armpits?
These bubbles make it look like your gecko has small air sacs or blisters in his armpits. Both male and female geckos get them. Armpit bubbles will not hurt your leopard gecko, and you shouldn’t be concerned about them. They are not painful or uncomfortable and don’t cause any sort of problem for your leopard gecko.
What are the signs of MBD in leopard geckos?
Classic signs of MBD in leopard geckos are tiredness, weakness, soft bones, lack of movement and sometimes tail thinning. Your leopard gecko might also start having problems with catching the prey when hunting – a result of bad coordination.
What happens if a leopard gecko gets fat?
Starvation can cause not only a fatty liver in a fat leopard gecko, but also xanthomatosis – fatty deposits under the skin, causing damage to internal organs. In this case, a leopard gecko starts losing lots of weight, its health declines, but the fat stomach remains. Without any help, this causes death.
How can you tell if a leopard gecko is pregnant?
You notice that you can see the bones in their body. Gecko bodies should have some thickness to them. They shouldn’t have any bumps or bulges in their stomach. Make sure they are not pregnant if you do notice a bulge. Their skin should be colorful.
Is it normal for a leopard gecko to have a bump?
Seeing that your leopard gecko has an unidentified bump, regardless of where it is located on the body, it is perfectly normal to have concerns. It is important to feel out whether or not the bump is free moving (able to be moved around in the skin) or rigidly stuck in position.
What kind of gecko is yellow with black spots?
Sometimes called Wild Type, these are the types of leopard geckos found in the wild. These lizards display the signature yellow bodies and black spots for which leopard geckos are named. These are generally the least expensive and most readily available type of leopard gecko
What kind of poop does a leopard gecko have?
Healthy leopard gecko’s poop should be soft, but not runny. It should be medium-dark to dark in color and have a white-yellowing excretion, which is uric acid. Leopard geckos preserve water by only excreting uric acid instead of urine. Sometimes you might also notice cricket or other insect waste that has not been fully digested – wings etc.
Are there any new leopard geckos coming out?
Through selective breeding, though, a large (and growing) number of new leopard gecko morphs have been created. This guide will explore many of the existing leopard gecko morphs, and even a couple that are still being developed.
