      Fat Pouches under Leopard Gecko’s armpits

      Just wanted to let anyone who has noticed this, what it is. When your Leo has little pouches under his armpit (looks like a fat bubble) that is because theyre getting too much calcium (or other vitamins/minerals) and their bodies are getting more than they can use, so its storing it. Just stop dusting with for a little while (id say a week max, depending on how often you feed) and use less when you start again. I just had to do this. (could also mean your leo is a little overweight.)

      Thanks for sharing that AB. I’ve noticed that my goats get pockets of fat underneath their armpits, even when the torso appears to be a good weight. I call em man boobs! 🤣
