Topics Forums Leopard Geckos Gecko Concerns (New Owner!) Reply To: Gecko Concerns (New Owner!)




I was actually logging on here tonight to see if I could find an answer to a similar question. I cleaned my gecko’s habitat yesterday and when I did he struggled when I took him out, which was odd. He’s normally really chill. But then, later after I returned him to the cleaned habitat, I noticed even stranger behavior. He was staring straight up at the ceiling and then licking the walls of the terrarium. He paced around and just couldn’t seem to settle.

So, of course, Google had an answer: enigma syndrome:

Enigma Syndrome in Leopard Geckos: An Autosomal Dominant Disorder

I really hope this is not the case with my guy (or the OPs), but just in case, could you speak to this and let me what you think as someone who is very familiar with these creatures? As best as I can tell, it’s not necessarily a fatal condition, but it definitely will affect his behavior.

Thanks in advance.
