One sacked-out Leopard Gecko, basking under the heat lamp.
I love the way she sometimes turns her little feet up like that.
She's going through one of her not-eating phases, and this one has lasted a long time. She can live off the fat she stores in her tail, but as you can see it's getting pretty slim.
I don't think she sees very well, poor baby. She's about 7 or 8 years old I think, but LGs can live to 25 or so in captivity. If her eyesight gets any worse I'm not sure how we're going to feed her.
She used to prefer crickets, but now seems to favor mealworms.
