She's only a few months old, maybe 10 inches long including her tail. I've been feeding her chopped greens (romaine, escarole, dandelion) and crickets. I've also tried mealies, but they aren't catching her eye. She has eaten (and quite vigorously at first), but has slowly gotten off of her food. We were using a 60 watt heat bulb initially, but upgraded to 100-watt (today), which has risen her basking temps into the high-90's. We also got a UTH to keep the temp up at night. She's only in a ten gallon now, but we plan to upgrade her soon. We're using a Zilla 50 UVB fixture and a Zilla Day-Glo Heat Bulb. I don't believe parasites are the issue, as she is a captive bred baby, but i'm no expert. She has been getting progressively thinner and less-responsive. The raised temps seem to be helping, but i want to take every precaution to make sure she'll be alright.
