    There is something on my Leopard Gecko's lip, it kinda looks like overlapped old shed. Can I just take it off his lip with pincers? I don't know what to do!

    Well, quite a long time ago I do remember one of my leopard geckos had this going on along with another sickness. I'm not a hundred percent sure, but it looks a bit like mouth rot. IT seems scary, but from what i've heard a vet visit does well, im not sure if they prescribe anti-biotics or what not, as for my gecko, he was no longer eating and had an eye infection and he passed. I'd say your best bet is to see a vet, im not sure there are home remedies that are proven to work for mouth rot.

    Isn't that really expensive? :(

    It depends, some vets you go to, if its a quick in and out where they prescribe something they might not charge you for the like evaluation? I suppose you could call it, I went to two different vets and they were both very nice and didnt charge me for coming in and having them take a look, but like i said this varies from vet to vet. Also some places you can do perhaps a payment plan if it is local or something of the sort.
