    Default Hemipenile sticking out..

    Got given a leopard gecko the other day from a friend, she found him online living in very poor conditions and not doing so good about a year ago. Since then hes regrown his tail and gained some weight.

    She recently had to move out of town and could not take him with her. I've had him a couple days and because hes been so skittish I had not noticed that part of his hemipenile is sticking out. Just wondering if you guys have any tips on how I can correct this?

    Couldnt get a good picture of the hemipenile because he really doesnt like to be bugged but heres what I could get. Meet Grek.

    Try soaking him in a bath of sugar water.

    It works wonders in about 95 % of all cases I've had.

    Honey and water is good too, and honey is antiseptic. You can also try some KY jelly on there to keep it lubed, if it doesn't go back in on its own, he may need surgery by a reputable reptile vet.
    try www.herpvetconnection.com to find a vet, if you don't already have one.
    Good luck with the soak!
