Guy, sorry to hear this. Are your using UVB that is not old? Dusting crickets with calcium/D3? Check him for mites? Look in vent area, feet, any place that looks red/ roughed up scales?


Can be so many things, parasites/ worms lack of calcium absorbtion from lack of D3 makes them lethargic and anorexic, contipated. Any twitching in toes or anywhere? Try and answer some of these questions it helps to try and figure things out.
Also Have to say what I'm supposed to say,,, Have you called your vet? May be a good idea, since we can not see him or knwo exactly whats going on. But I personally woudl make sure he is well hydrated, by droper or needless syringe, I would squirt small amounts of water or electrolytes as far back in his throat as possible, at least 3 - 4 times a day.

Don't wait to long these guys go down quickly when in that condition. I hope he will be okay!
