I have a leopard gecko that i have had for about 5 years. He has always looked healthy and maintained a good appetite. I moved away for about a year leaving him in the care of someone else. When i returned he seemed like he had lost some weight and did not look as sharp as he used to. After spending a little time with him i realized that he now seems very disoriented. When i used to feed him he would "perk" up at the sound of the crickets and when they entered the tank would promptly devour them. When i feed him now he still seems to hear the crickets and become more active bjut he does not go after the crickets. He almost seems blind to me in his behavior. Has anyone else experienced this type of behavior? is there anything i can do? i purchased some emergency suppliments from my pet store as i was very worried about his weight and over all appearance. any insight or suggestions would be appreciated!!!


thanks very much
