Hey folks my son has 1.2 geckos and actually bred them and hatched some babies this year. I was looking in on them last night and the male seems to be holding his head tilted.

The trio is kept separately in a rack much similar to how I keep my colubrid snakes with heat tape below the back 3" of the enclosure. This hot area reaches about 95 during the day and drops to 80 for a period at night. Bedding is news print (not pretty but easy to clean. They have access to both moist and dry hides. He's primarily feeding them supper worms but occasionally supplements with gut loaded crickets. A small dish of RepCal is provided which all of them seem to lick at occasionally.

All three are fat sassy and feeding well and only the male has this head tilt issue. He is also an enigma (sp?) morph if that helps.

Any input appropriated. Thanks in advance.
