    Hi everyone! i’ve owned my leo, ophelia, for about 7 months and she is my first reptile so i’m fairly new. Everything has gone smoothly until this week when she stopped eating as much and i noticed her tail looking a bit odd. i’ll attach photos. Thank you!

    She looks like a good size, and many female leopard geckos are eating a lot less now because they're ovulating. The tail looks as if it wants to go into shed but hasn't quite made it. It's possible that the rest of her will start looking like that very soon and she will shed.
