My name is ***** ***** I am a Vet Tech with over 40 years in Reptile health.

Type of sunstrate?

Diet prey. veggies?

Eas the urates pink or did you see blood in the stool?


Reptile carpet for substrate, i have a salad of lettuce and sweet potato everyday but she doesnt eat it so mostly just crickets. I believe its just the urate thats pink

This is a list of veggies to feed in the linl below. Lettuce is not goodL

As far as the pinkish color in the utates, that can indicate dehydration. Ehat I suggest is a 20 min warem soak 3 ties a week to hero resolve that issue,

Under a year a dragon needs 80% love prey and 30% veggies. After one year the percentafes will reverse.

Good feeders are crickets, silk worms, dubia roaches and Pgoenix worms. No super worms or meal worms. They are not digestible, too high in fat.

Please reply to discuss this info,
