    It seems to have become worse since last night. It is still pink but his hemipenes seem to be out even more. Tomorrow cannot come soon enough so I can take him to a qualified vet. I made sure the enclosure was well misted and put some more honey on it. No bueno.

          Its definitely prolapsed then, and its becoming swollen because the bloodflow isn't normal. This is where the honey is important, it keeps things moist, helps draw out excessive fluid, and also has some antibacterial properties.

          Here's a summary of a gecko of mine that prolapsed:

              Thanks for the concern everyone. In Tucson we have one the best herp vets around, Dr. Samuels. He tried to put my leachianus's prolapse back in but it wouldn't stay. He ended up have to use some sutures to hold it in place. He looks like he is doing well and I will return back to the vet on Thursday to take out the sutures. If he prolapses again within the day he is going to have to amputate it, which will suck but I didn't plan on breeding him. I'm glad we got him to the vet and their prices were amazing. I'll keep you all updated what happens with him and thanks again!
