Hello,
I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. Some additional information will be useful.
What brand and size of UVB light do you have? Is its spiral/coil type or a straight tube? How old is the bulb?
What fruits and vegetables are you feeding? What insects?
How often do you give the calcium supplement? Is it a powder?
What temperatures do you maintain under the basking light and on the cool side of the cage?
Thank you.
Anna
