but over the last few days she hasnt been like that , she has been tooo quite. too still, and hasnt been eating much,
she stil lhas a lovely plump tail, but... just isnt right.

Might be because it coming into winter? Maybe she is quieting down due to some internal clock or something telling her to calm down? I dont know really, just a thought

Doesn't matter you handle the rest the same, each gecko is different. If you handle them too much, they can become stressed or she could have just gotten used to you and have settled down.

If you have changed something, that could be a reason.

Most breeders I've talked to and with my own geckos, I double the days when I feed. So if you feed every 2 days, try 4 days, etc... this is all because of the cold; winter time.

once a week is ok, I thought you were handling everyday. Try feeding her every 2 days. If she isn't eating much of them, try adding 1-2 mealworms per week in order to keep the weight on her.

She could be just different, I have 1 leopard who is all over the place and seen others who are calm.

Most likely the cold could just be the cause.

I believe you can run your finger on her belly and check for abnormal like parasites. Other people should be more helpful on checking for things like that.

I really doubt its the handling, its probably just the time of year. My leo has defo slowed down and is a lot less active now. They can sense it in the air even if the temps dont go down
