    Definately take her to your nearest reptile vet. She could have possibly damaged it coming out of the egg. Also make sure she's getting the right amount of vitamins and calcium in her diet because it could be a sign of mbd. Definitely gather checked out though.

    Please stop speaking in text talk, its against forum rules.

    Needs a reptile vet. What are you force feeding it? What vitamins and minerals too?

    What are your temps? I would feed it a slurry and you can add in some chicken baby food. Not whole mealies.

    Agreed... needs a herp vet and use a slurry. It makes it easier to ensure they're getting enough calcium/vitamins while they aren't eating on their own because you can add the supplements right into the liquid. Leopard Geckos are very stubborn and will try to climb even when they are injured, so take out anything in the tank that they could try to climb and fall from (ie. fake plants, tall hides). If it was a clean break and nothing ends up getting infected the limb should heal straight on its own, though the vet may splint it just in case.

    Good luck!
