I would say the likely situation you have here is impaction, which can be caused from large food and eating loose substrate, i have had a baby die at 6 weeks old purely because I didn't notice a cricket that was a little bit to big for him, i was so upset, and hope that this does not happen with you're litte man/girl, I am glad he eventually pooped it out, the use of his legs should come back within a few days hopefully, if not then a trip to the vets will be needed, I hope you're little baby is healthy after all of this

Another type of green which they seem to enjoy is spring greens , also known as fresh greens, you can get them in Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury's if you live in the UK

My particular focus is on snakes and lizards, but I have a decent smattering of knowledge of turtles and crocodilians as well, plus the experience to get relevant information quickly if I don't have it on hand in my brain. I can answer questions on captive care, diet, breeding, incubation of eggs, starting hatchlings, and more. I am particularly experienced with ball pythons, Lygodactylus geckos and other small lizards with similar care requirements, leopard geckos, and garter snakes.


I am a professional breeder of ball python morphs, Lygodactylus (dwarf) geckos, and mourning geckos. I have begun working with Irian Jaya carpet pythons, and plan to expand to include more gecko species in the future. I also have a background breeding leopard geckos, and have kept several other species of small lizards, snakes, and a water turtle.
