Describe Diet:
A) Typical diet
- What you're feeding (how often, how much) I was giving him mealworms for a while because I hate crickets but I got some crickets for him recently, He gets like 3 or 4 decent sized mealworms every 3 days or 3 or 4 large crickets every 3 days.
- How are you feeding (hand fed, left in dish, ect) Hand feeding
B) Supplements (describe how often) I need to get a calendar to keep track but I cover the bugs in rep-cal for most the time and a few times a month he gets them covered in vitamin powder.
- What vitamin/minerals are you using (list brands)rep-cal
- What are you gut loading food with: I only have potatoes right now but i give them any fruit or veggie I have at the time.
I have been giving him warm baths for about 15 minutes for the past 3 days while rubbing his stomach because I have been reading a lot of things online because I am so worried about him :^(
His heat pads and tank are the same temp but lately he hasn't been laying on his heat pads at all
