hello, i have been taking in sick snakes for as long as i could remmeber but about a week or two ago i came across a mature water dragon that was Really under fed. i believe the person (which was a doctor) was doing a dozen an a half medium crikets a week an had no UV lighting on him.

i put him in a nice cage with both uvA and uvB on him nice large soaking bowl an i mist the cage every now an then. his color an attitude has improved a lot only thing is that he doesnt seem to be putting on any weight i have been feeding him everyday a dozen crickets dusted, a pinkie mouse, an sometimes a fish or two(i know fish are junk food but vet said its good to change their diet around so i was wondering if there is anything else i should try i can post pictures, he is looking thicker for sure just not as much as i thought he would by now
thanks
