 Crested Gecko Help!!

I have had a crested gecko for about 2 yrs now, and have never had any trouble. The last couple days, however, he has been acting very strange. He has been very lethargic, which is not like him. Usually he is extremely active, so it worries me that he hasn’t been moving around much, he hasn’t been hunting the crickets i put in his cage yesterday (I feed him once a week), and he has seemed very weak. I tried raising the humidity in his cage to around 80%, and i checked his temperature, which is in the high 70s. He also shed this morning, but that didn’t affect his behavior either. Any help? Or ideas for what might be wrong with him? Thanks a bunch.

 Crested Gecko Help!!

Hey I noticed the same thing with my pair of crested geckos. The last couple weeks they have been less energetic and i saw them just laying curled up on the bottom of their cage. They are both female and housed together. When I hold them they "wake up" and become their normal energetic selves, and they seem overall very healthy otherwise.

I live in Wi and although I keep the cage at a pretty stable temp, there has been a slight drop in temp simply due to winter and their cage is close to the window so they may simply be affected by the winter?
