I just recently adopted a mali uromasyx, Winslow, he is approx. 20 years old. He’s never been around other lizards, I think he’s a he. They told me to just feed him frozen green beans. I did a little research and started to vary his diet with bananas and kale. He’s been eating everyday. They told me he hadn’t eaten in a month. I changed his substrate with fresh because they had this pink stuff that turned his claws pink. I didn’t think that is healthy for him. So I got the natural desert substrates. Today I came in and he is in his usual spot but is like panting with his mouth open. I never seen him do this. I was concerned so I stroked his back to check him. He stopped. Is this a normal behavior? I moved his tank by the window yesterday and had the heat light on… Do you think he got to hot? I've never owned a lizard before and he's very chillax. Even when I changed his tank.
Thanks for any input.
Julz
