Hey. I'm new here so thought I would show you guys my Leos.

This is Voodoo:


This is Tiki:




and this is them chilling in their viv:


They're both female and about 9 months old and are pretty happy little guys really.

The last few days they've been a bit off their food though which is making me a bit worried-Tiki hasn't eaten properly since about Weds of last week and Voodoo since Friday. They're both happy in themselves though and there doesn't seem to be anything else wrong with them. Do they look healthy to you guys and is it anything to worry about yet or shall I just give them a few days?

Cheers.

Yeah- I'm not that big on the different morphs to be honest, but I thought she was a carrot tail. Is she also hypotangerine?



That's her dad and she is looking almost identical to him now.

They look lovely and have nice plump tails :) i would suggest to possibly change the sand because of the risk of impaction. Everything else looks great tho :2thumb:

No not had her stools checked yet, but equally I have seen no sign of anything out of the ordinary in that respect- they go when they have eaten and all seems well.

They've not been on sand since babies no- only about 6 weeks which I think is why I'm worried. I do keep a really close eye on them and there is a bowl of calcium in there to deter them from eating the sand. Plus they get hand fed so there's not too much danger of them ingesting sand when eating.

That said, I think I will probably switch to repti carpet within the next week as they are due a full clean anyway.

Shedding is a good call actually. They are both about due I would say as they've not shed for a few weeks and Voodoo is looking a bit dull today. I'll keep an eye on them.

That's what worried me to be honest it could just be coincidence, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

It'll be changed this week.

Update:

Voodoo shed this morning so that could explain why she wasn't eating. Tiki is still being funny about food (although she often seems to go off a certain livefood) so I got some waxworms today and they were both happily munching those down. Hopefully they are just being fussy or just aren't hungry.

Also they're back on kitchen roll until I can pick up my repti carpet.

Yep I know- they have only ever had waxworms twice before- they eat crix or locusts as a staple. Only tried waxies because they haven't been eating other foods.
