soooo ... i have a leopard gecko that i got from my boss because her kids werent taking care of it properly, i have had it for almost a year and she has started to get chubby. i dont know if im feeding her too much or what. she never throws up or anything and she seems hungry when i put the crickets in with her :p i feed her probably 2-4 crickets a day ... some times we change it up and i give her the small meal worms 3-6. she seems alot more active and playful if you may ... she enjoys being held and loves to explore the mountains of blankets on my bed. i guess i just wanted to know if they can get too fat like a dog or a cat where it becomes dangerous for their health

cant wait to hear from you guys ! :D

I dunno much about geckos, but other lizards can get way too fat, so I don't see why it would be different for them.

If her tail is fat and she is of a good weight I would not worry about it, I have seen them get up to 100 grams.

Chubby is a good thing. Don't worry so much! :)
