Spook the leopard geoko

Postby puppyluv363 » Wed Mar 31, 2021 4:01 pm

My leopard gecko spook is losing a lot of weight I don't think he is eating, he only stays in his house, and his tank mate Sandy who we think is the more dominant one is becoming agitated when we try and go near him or pick him up... Spook is usually the bigger and thicker looking one now he is significantly smaller than Sandy.

Hello,

Are both leopard geckos males, or male & female?
I would separate them for now, maybe using some type of divider if possible. Most of the time,
if one is starting to dominate over the other, usually the one being bullied wont make it or will
become very ill.
Do you have any pictures you could post for us?

We are unsure of their sex and Sandy is not bullying spook she is trying to protect him. she gets very agitated when we pick him up to check him out... like I said we don't know the sexes we are just guessing, they get very upset when separated, they grew up in separate tanks then some personal events happened and at no choice or fault of me and my husband... they ended up in a pet store once we were aware they were there we got them back and they were being homed together and hates being separated since. every time we check spook out Sandy checks him out and loves up on him. I will try and get you those pictures tomorrow.

Hello,

Great, looking forward to pictures of them both.
Maybe you could try feeding them separately to see if that helps out?

Hello,

He looks good, is he the smaller one then? How has he been doing, is he eating very
much yet?

Hello,

Ok, thanks! Maybe you should try feeding them separately to be sure that he has equal
chance of being able to get some food.
