Setup: 40 gal viv, hot side temps 94-85, cool side 75, moist hide, dry hide available, free fed calcium, he gets repashi vitamins w/ vit D. I use a heat pad and a DHP bulb for him. Last time he ate was last night, his poos seem fine as far as I can tell. Fresh water every day. He’s currently on fluker’s canned crickets. He was on dried crickets/mealworms before that that he loved but went off them about 2 weeks ago. I switched to flukers and he likes them better but will only eat if I hand feed him. Not sure how much water he’s consuming.
I have a leo, he’s approx 3-4 years old. He’s a rescue so I don’t know his entire background, and I’ve had him about a year and a half. About 2 weeks ago he went off his food, but he’s done that before when he gets tired of the type of insect he’s been fed. So I changed it up and he’s eating still but only if I hand feed him. He’s pale and very lethargic. I thought perhaps he is getting ready for a shed because it’s almost that time, but his lethargy has me concerned. He has spent the last week in his humid hide, and yesterday he came out but he’s slow and moving seems like an effort. I scooped him up to check him over and no cuts, scrapes, abrasions, abnormalities that I can see aside from one very small flesh colored bump on his tummy. It has no discharge, bleeding, etc. Doesn’t seem painful to him that I can tell. He didn’t protest to being picked up which is weird, and just sat still in my hand. I gave him a warm electrolyte bath in case he’s dehydrated, but today he seems the same. I was hoping someone might have some experience and can tell me if he’s seriously ill or just having an extra hard shed? Thanks.
