 Sick Pregnant Gecko

Question. I recently introduced a male Tremper Albino Leopard Gecko to 2 females. He mated with both of them, but one of my females is not eating anymore and is dangerously skinny. She has bite marks, so I know the male was aggressive with her. Any solutions on how I can get her to eat again?

...also I know she’s well into her pregnancy because I can see the 2 eggs. Any advice will help.

Females do tend to eat less when pregnant, my alligator lizard didnt eat anything but ur lizard may have not been healthy enough for breeding....how was her weight and health before she was breed?

Your female should have been atleast 50 or 60g before you decided to breed her. Was she? Has she layed any eggs before this clutch?

They stop eatting before laying and will be VERY hungry right after, so feed her as much as she wants after you get the eggs.

goodluck
keep us updated
