 Help please!

My tokay heabeen acting strange last 2 days. i bought him about 3 weeks ago at a pet store and everything has been fine till now. for some reason he wont or can’t move his back 2 legs! his front 2 work just fine and he is eating and pooping. his color is normal and he hasn’t been acting unusual other than he isn’t as bitey as he normally is. any help would be great. i do know of a vet that may have knowledge of reptile illnesses but i don’t havce alot of money to spend on a vet visit.

you need to take him to a vet. if you couldn’t afford to pay for a vet visit you shouldn’t have gotten the animal, just because its a gecko doesn’t mean you won’t have to make any visits. sounds like some sort of calcium deficiency or D3 something (i’m not sure, just what may be causing it), but you really need to get him to a vet. paralysis is a serious thing.
