 Tail not growing back ?

Hi ,

When I first aquired my Leo he had, had his tail bitten off by someone who was previously keeping him with a bearded dragon (I know, she was misinformed). The end of the tail fell off a few days after I got him, that’s been months now, It healed but It does not seem like it will regrow.

Does it only regrow when the whole tail drops off ?

It sounds to me that when the beardie bit your gecko’s tail, your gecko did not willingly "drop" his tail, but the tail was injured. The end of the tail died, and fell off a few days later. The tail will not grow longer in this case.
