    Are you still having this problem? Just in case, I might be able to help. Good news is, this is most likely normal! Do you have a gram scale? If not, I think it's a worthy purchase! Monitor his weight. If he doesn't lose much weight, then he should be okay. Even if it's been a while since he's eaten. Sometimes leos stop eating during mating season (which I believe started a couple of months ago, my female leo is definitely ovulating right now) which is normal behavior and shouldn't harm the gecko as long as they aren't losing a lot of weight. I hope this helps you in some way! I wish you and your leo the best.
