The vivarium is between 70 and 80 always, and I shoot for 75. I've tried soaking her with no results; there is no visible stuck shed and I don't think that's the problem. I've tried baby food. Anything I get her to eat must be actually done by me (coaxing or force feeding)-- she won't eat on her own and she especially won't touch bugs. One thing that wasn't mentioned before was that she has a lump in her lower back. I believe that she got in a fight in the pet store before I bought her and we thought that it was a bite that would heal, but now I'm wondering if the other gecko really did some damage, like a spinal injury. She doesn't appear to be in pain though. She walks fine and even jumps short distances, but only if she's taken out. Otherwise she just lays in the same place all day on the floor of her vivarium. A spinal injury that doesn't completely prevent her from movement shouldn't affect her eating, though, and doesn't explain her non-sticky toes, does it? I've wondered about internal parasites, but I read that cresteds rarely get that problem. I don't know what's up, but I really wish I could make it all better for her. Thank you for your advice, and any more would be greatly appreciated. I don't know where to turn.
