This young male is of the much larger capra like ssp, not the same as J3nnay and my example lizards, ours donít show as large dewlaps and hempen bulges.

Obviously you canít tell them apart yet you go on about coloration and such, why?

I find your advising quit retrograding and useless, if I was a new keeper seeking advise, then your post would have completely misguided me.

Your approach to deparasiting is ridiculous, first any good vet will perform faecal to determine witch parasites heís dealing with, then will prescribe an appropriate drug in specific dosage. None whould ever send any drugs to be blind used on lizards. However the first problem is that vet medicine is based of worm blooded animals, reptiles use basking to regulate parasite as they canít tolerate high temps.
This has been going on for millions of years, nothing new.

An other reason why treating with drugs is ridiculous, parasites are in all (no exception) foods you will ever feed your lizards. Insects and vegetal all harbour parasites.
Of course vets all know and understand this, this is why dog and cat food are processed, a cats natural diet is rodents and dogs are scavengers in nature, both living fine with parasites. What they donít understand is reptile biology, you canít keep them sterile.
