Lucy- My gargoyle gecko with metabolic bone disease

The gargoyle geckos have such bold color that gets better with time.  It is great to watch it develop and come in.  I have one little lady that I adopted with metabolic bone disease.  I don't think there is any chance that I can reverse it but I have been able to get her healthy.  She has been putting on weight and doesn't seem as hump backed.

When I got her- 43grams
She was boney and had a pretty significant hump in her spine at her tail.

After 4 months and 13 grams later she is fiesty.  She has filled out nicely and has some meat on her bones.

No more bones but still humped.  Love her fat legs.

55 grams

She never gets as light as she did when I got her.    I like the fact that I could help her.  Wish I hadn't had to pay $150 to get her.  I couldn't leave her behind.  I don't know if her owner knew what was wronge with her- she said she "got her this way".

up to 68 grams.  Chunky Monkey
