    Max isn't pooping

    My leapord is now about 15 months and all the sudden he stopped pooping. He was pooping every other day and now it's been 5 days without a poop, I also noticed his weight has stayed steady for about a week, when he usually averages about 6 grams a week. His enclosure temps are Daytime: 83 on...

    Mark, I have had Max since Feb 16th when he arrived he was 8 months and only 80 grams. I am sure that he wasn't started correctly and as you saw in the pictures he already had some pyramiding. I was worried I might have issues with hatchling failure syndrome with him, but after getting him...

    How much soaking is too much?

    Honestly, I think once a day for the first year is plenty, assuming you have your enclosure setup correctly. If the humidity in your enclosure is over 75% it will ensure that your baby isn't getting dehydrated, and that is why you are soaking them. Also, always make sure there is fresh water...
