Mealworms aren't a good diet, get her some small/medium crickets and disable them a bit so she can catch them easily. Phoenix or calcium worms as well.


I gave her a smaller water dish and ordered more crickets, FYI.

Hello,

That is great news she took the pumpkin & olive oil mixture for you. It sounds like it took a lot
of patience but definitely worth it. I have had leos in the past & they are so precious. I am glad
she is doing better now. :D
Let us know how she is progressing.

Sure thing. I've had her for at least 8 months, maybe even a year trying to help her. With NO progress :banghead:! But BD.org as really helped!

Yeah! Hey, new question: I think she has a vision problem. You can't see a problem, but she can't see and catch crickets. Only worms that wiggle enough for her to see, but not move away. She won't eat from my hand but from a dish. Again, I can't afford a vet trip ($70 just to see the vet!) I'll post pics if requested. Thanks for all the replays
!

She might just be ignoring the crickets, mine does that sometimes if she wants to hold out for superworms or mealworms. Just keep trying them once in a while. Pics are always good though.

She will run into things as if she didn't know they were there. Maybe she's playing dumb :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hello,

That's great she ate a hornworm, she is going to get spoiled then! LOL
I hope she isn't losing her vision. A lot of them just like worms but not crickets or roaches
for some reason.

Hello,

She is lovely! I do miss having one, it has been quite awhile since we had a leopard gecko.
They can be so friendly. :D

Thanks! I hope she starts eating crickets soon, because she won't even attempt to eat them :roll: :banghead:
