Hello and welcome. 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 helpful.

What is the temperature gradient in the cage?

What is the humidity level?

What brand and size of UVB light do you have? How old is the bulb?

What do you feed? Any supplements?

How is Taco's appetite?

Does he pass normal droppings?

Thank you.
