What you are seeing is the result of Metabolic Bone Disease. Without having the calcium, it is leaving the Leo seizuring. I suggest getting the Leo into a Herp Vet as you have done all you can at home. The Herp vet will have to administer calcium supplements to help bring the Leo out of this problem. I do suggest getting a UVB light on the enclosure to help metabolize calcium in the body. We normally do not use them for Leos, but with yours being in bad shape it may help. A Reptisun 10.0 tube type bulb placed no more than 12" from the Leo. You can continue to try and get the clacium into her with the baby food. place a drop on the snout and allow her to lick it off. I can lcoate a herp Vet for you with a State. A Visit usually runs $45-$65 . I would also add a dish of calcium to the tank for her to lick. Joan
