I have a baby crested gecko who is under two inches long and seems to be doing relatively well. My only concern is that his or her right front leg doesn't land correctly on the ground and has a knotted appearance. It seems to roll to the side when placed on the ground.
It also doesn't appear to be able to hop, but then again that could be just because its so small.
Is this something I should take it to the vet for, or should I just wait and see how things go for a while? I have a feeling that the damage is already done and that he/she'll just have to live with the odd leg.
