I have 2 tokay geckos, one has always been thin (Joker), has been dewormed, seemed fine, the other (Dalton) was almost fat when I got him, but hides all the time, I look under his "hide" to be sure he is alive, but really never see him! they were set up in super plush, mossy, homes, and one day a couple weeks ago Dalton was out of his hide and had lost a bunch of wt! I took a closer look at Joker, and hes thinner too!
changed the set up to bare min (separate cages as always)so I can keep an eye on how much they eat, ect, will get a wt on them and deworm tomorrow, temps have not changed, 85-87 day, 76 night, they are in my "tropical room" humidity is high, no problems shedding.
don't know that age of either (both rescues) they could just be getting old, but it worries me they both lost wt at the same time :{
will be seeing my herp vet friend this week and talk to him, but any other ideas welcome!
