Hi, i have a 5 month old leopard gecko. I have been feeding him primarily small dubia roaches and meal worms. A couple of days ago he threw up some partly digested mealworms and he hadn't been pooing as regular. Although this morning he had done a relatively sizable poo.
His temps are warm enough, his warm end it 32C with a heat mat and thermostat attached, there's never any undigested mealworms in his poo or anything. I read somewhere i could be parasites so i took a picture of his poo to see what other people think.

Cheers.

The poop looks normal to me, he might have eaten too much and just been a bit sick.
If you're worried about parasites the only way to find out is to get his poop checked by a vet or by PALS.

As above but I would also be tempted to turn the warm end temps up to 33c. Are you measuring temperature with a digi thermometer or going by the dial on the stat? The temps on stat dials are only a guide you need to calibrate against a good thermometer.

thanks for the replies. ill turn it up a notch then and take it to 33c. I use a digital thermostat and a digital thermometer. Although i go by the thermometer reading and then adjust the thermostat accordingly.
