They'll still know they have a neighbour, I've done the same thing with a 4ft viv =] It might be putting her off her dinner, but I have a young male and female next door to each other and it doesn't affect either of them.

Leo's are VERY good at hiding pain. It's a defence mechanism.

if it was that you would prob see the signs slow tail waving arching of the back hissing prob more the tail and shedding might be best to see a vet to have her checked

My vet is a normal vet but she has experience with reptiles, most reptile vets are about the same as a normal vet. It cost me £75 for a full check, x-ray and feacal test for Aura.
I've had reptiles for 13 years and this is the first year I've EVER taken any to the vet. I think it's just luck.



The two I have as neighbours were viv mates but then one turned out to be male and started to display at the female at 3 months old, waving his tail in the air and squeaking, so I spilt the viv in half and they can still smell each other, they are very happy, and sometime fall asleep next to each other on each side of the wooden partition. ^_^

EDIT: Is it possible she got her tail caught in the partition?

For the time being I wouldn't worry about your husbandry questions, the immediate thing is to get her to a vet ASAP.


Good luck.

No the partisen is tight in there I will get her to the vet ASAP and then move her in to her own viv see if that makes any difference because I have notice she does wave her tail in the air at times

She's probably a bit grumpy with him and the sore tail, hopefully the vet will sort it =] Let us know how she gets on!
