Last night i posted about Molli having a sore nose, tonight he is acting strangly, staring up to the sky & going in circles, her nose is better but somehow, she has taken the skin off her nose, there is a raw spot, i've bathed it again with Tramodine diluted.
Has anyone got any idea's what is wrong with him.
He is a mack snow with pure black eyes.

I'm not to bothered about her nose, it's her circling & holding her head up strangly that bothers me more.
Any ideas on that.

Sounds very much like he has succumbed to the Enigma syndrome - Molli is the Mack Enigma poss Eclipse right - the one you bought in a petshop for a good price right?

Anyhow, itr sounds very much like it`s suffering from the neurologucal problems that can affect Enigmas in particular - but also any other morph from time to time. The classic signs of it, are exactly as you describe her behaviour: star gazing, head tilts, circling, bad prey striking and so and so..... It`s too an indepth topic to go into again on her, but first things first, get it to a specialist rep vet, and secondling, do a google search for info on - enigma leopard gecko problem`s, issues, syndrome etc...hope it`s not, but the signs sound classic I`m afraid.

Thanks for the reply, what, if anything can be done for him??
He did it a little bit when i first had him but then stopped, so i thought it might just be the shock of travelling & so didn't take much notice of it, but the last couple of nights he has been really bad, he has always had a bad food strike to, i always hand feed him, if i didn't he would be dead now from starvation, (i think) it is such a shame, i thought it might be this when i saw it but just hoped not, there's no cure is there?
