Today I finally got him to poop... 30 minute belly massage didn’t work... he hasn’t eaten a single green since hes been here so I thought maybe lack of water. When he would open his mouth basking on his rock I shot 1ml of water in his mouth... 1 hour later he pooped, extremely large. In the bowel movement were 3 very hard pieces of calcium Im guessing... not sure, they were very hard to squeeze. What causes this buildup? Lack of UVB? Maybe his light wasn’t close enough? They were just real hard white pieces that looked like tylenol pills but a little bigger.

I got him last Wednesday so its been a week and 3 days. Anyone have any ideas. He eats about 10-20 superworms a day, he ate 1 dubia roach... not sure how the calcium buildups or what they were got so hard, but im guessing he was probably impacted from them? Any ideas what I can change to prevent this in the future? Should I not dust with regular calcium and use the calcium with d3... I do use a UVB light but I think the light wasnt close enough to help. Its now close enough and kept on 3-5 hours a day. Calcium with d3 or without?
