Okay, I was handling my baby leo earlier, and noticed it has a purple triangle shaped spot on its belly, and a little blue circle in the middle. I looked it up, and thought it might be impaction, so I soaked him for around 20 mins. The purple looks like it moved down slightly, and the blue spot moved down to the bottom of the purple area... Please help! I dont want to lose this little guy, he's my very first leopard Ive ever had.. Crying or Very sad

Edit: He also has not been eating, but he hasnt really been lethargic.

I think you'll need to do some searching mate because it's hard to say without seeing the lizard in person or even pictures. I just done a little search and came across a thread about the same thing and it came down to it's one of their organs that are visable through young leopard gecko's thin skin and nothing to worry about but it's weird if yours' spot has moved.

This is the thread I found but obviously I don't know how true it is or how it relates to yours.

That looks like it! Thanks! Maybe I dont need to worry as much anymore. But that still doesnt explain why he hasnt been eating... Hrm....
