    Hello I have a 1 year old Leo. And he hasn't eaten in 2 weeks. And I am getting very worried.
    1.) He is in a 10 gallon tank
    2.) I use reptile carpet
    3.) He has a rock hide on warm side and 2 fake plant decorations on cool side
    4.) I use a heat lamp as heat source and the degrees is 75-80 on warm side
    5.) I only feed him meal worms and he has been fine with it up until now. I even decided to get crickets today and he won't eat them.
    6.) He has a really fat tail not skinny at all. And he stands on all four legs as is very active.
    So I really don't understand. I know he isn't eating because the same ammount of meal worms are always in there and I haven't seen any poop in 2 weeks. I'm freaking out here. It makes no sense

    It sounds like your temperatures are a little on the cool side. How and where are you checking your temperature? You should be checking the floor temperature, and it should be within a couple degrees of 90 (88-92) They use belly heat to digest their food, and if their bellies are not warm enough, they will not eat.
