I have had a Mali Uromastyx (sex unknown) since june of 2008. It was a juvenile when purchased and was fed primarily insects (crickets, mealworms) for the first 5-6 months. After about six months of this diet, the animal refused insects, so it was switched to an entirely vegetarian diet comprised of escarole, spring mix, lentils, green beans, brussels sprouts, cilantro. However, it does not appear that the animal is actually eating any of the vegetables being offered.

Are there any seasonal behavior changes that are often seen in these animals that might be causing this lack of interest in food? Perhaps a breeding behavior? Temperature has been stable since the animal was acquired. Thank you.
