My leo is nice and plump and happy. I usually keep some meal worms in the fridge for her on days when I don't have time to make it to the pet store, but I've since run out.

You are watching: How long can geckos live without food

My work schedule has made me completely unable to make it to the pet store while they're open (and I can't go on breaks because my breaks are too short to get to one and back)-- so she hasn't had any food in just about a week and a half.

I feel terrible and I guess I just wanna know if it's actually not horrible on her. (I plan to finally go today!)

Thanks

Honestly, order your food online in bulk. It's cheaper and better to be honest.

I don't have the space for crickets. I should get into dubias again soon. :/

Naturally a leopard gecko can go up to 30 days without food. BUT if your guy is hungry and you aren't feeding him that is different and his weight and size will go down. Especially his tail first

Gotcha. I've really been paying attention to her tail, it's still plump!

I know I feel awful, this is the kind of answer I was looking for!

It's not ideal, of course, but a week and a half should be fine. But get that food!

You should order mealworms online and have them delivered, or have a friend/family member pick some food up. There's always a way and ta really not fair to the animal. Also consider if this is going to become a norm with your schedule, if so, you may need someone to take the geckos for a bit.
