He is 4 months old, terrarium is 30 gallon, he had walnut shells as substrate,has uv light heat lamp for day and night, coil.. He eats mostly small crickets and mill worms, and some veggies. We had to evacuate do to storm so he only had dried crickets, and was only in a smaller container without his lamps and heat... We kept him in warm sun spot. When we returned is when the issue began.

Crickets, silk worm, phoenix worms, horn worms, and dubia roaches for feeders.
