    I came home today to find my gecko with a large bulge at the base of its tail. I'm not 100% sure of the gender, though I've always assumed it was male judging by the images I've seen online. I'm very worried, and I'd love some help in knowing what's going on with my homie :(

    Ouch, looks like you've got a male there with a swollen hemipenis.
    Any reptile vets in the area? He should see one. Sometimes they get abscesses in that area that need to be cleaned

    Yep, vet. Hopefully you can find one that is actually competent with reptiles, but there isn't really anything we can say to help, other than it needs to see a vet.
