Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and hoping you can help with a concern I'm having with my CWD. For the past 5 days or so, his appetite has decreased from his usual consumption of about 5-6 mealworms and crickets per day, to just one mealworm today. This started around the same time he began shedding, with about half of his body (the lower half) currently taking on the "ready to shed" appearance without flaking off yet. The lack of appetite really concerns me, as he's never done this before during a shed (if that's what's causing it). Is it too soon to start panicking about his lack of eating? I lost my first WD due to her being a rescue with many health problems and me being too inexperienced to help her. As a result, I'm overly paranoid when it comes to my little man. Here's some info: Age - unknown. Acquired in May from a pet store and told he was "approximately 6 months old". However, he's currently 86g, 5" SVL, 18" STL, which, if I've done my research correctly, tells me he should be at least a year old by now. Would that be accurate? Sex - male. Has definite pores and hemipenal bulges. Vet info - has seen a reputable herp vet twice since I've had him - once to treat for parasites, and was confirmed by fecal that he was clean, and the second time was because he somehow hurt his leg (knee I think) on something in his enclosure. Was x-rayed and the exam showed no broken bones, so vet assumed he tore something and would have to heal on his own. Was given a weeklong course of antibiotics, and with the exception of having a gimpy leg that he doesn't really use, has seemed fine (this was back in June). Diet - mostly crickets and mealworms, mealworm pupas when available, butterworms a couple times a week, phoenix worms a couple times a week. Has rejected silkworms and hornworms, and never tried roaches as they are illegal where I live. All prey dusted daily with calcium and once/wk with multivitamin. Usually loves butterworms the most and has never refused one, except for today. Housing - currently housed in a 60 gal tank, but I have his custom-built 5'x4'x3' terrarium in my possession, and just working on getting it set up and was planning to move him over ASAP. I'm concerned about moving him if something is wrong though. Has reptile carpet for substrate, one live pothos plant, two large swimming pools - one on the warm side with a heat pad underneath it and a filter, one on the cool side with a pump. Has lots of foliage, wood, climbing vines, a large tree hide, a basking hammock, and a water bowl hammock. All sides are covered with coroplast or aquarium background so he can't see out. Has a wire/screen lid with half covered in packing tape for humidity. Has a reptifogger on 1/2 hour timer. Lighting/temp/humidity - measured with digital hygrometer and thermometer. Has a Reptiglo 5.0 UVB light that's approx 6 months old, and will be changed out for a Reptisun 10 UVB with his new enclosure. Has a 100W basking light, a 60W infrared heat light, and a nighttime heat light that's been on 24-7 lately due to colder weather. Temps range from about 82F - 90F, with a basking spot of about 95-98F. He's on a 13 hr day cycle. Humidity ranges from 60-80%, and he's misted twice a day. Behavior - I'd say active. Whenever I pass by his enclosure, he's never in the same spot, alternating between climbing his vines, soaking in one of his pools, hanging out on his water hammock, hanging out on the ground, etc. He's usually a bright green colour, eyes open and alert, only closes them if I try to offer food by hand. He hardly ever sleeps during the day, if at all. The only change (other than the lack of eating) is that in these past 5 days-week, he's been basking a lot less, and spending most of his time in one of his pools. As well, whenever the fogger comes on, he plants himself right underneath it. Ok, I think that covers it. Please let me know if you need any more info. Any help or advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. I'm starting to get worried about my little man. If a vet trip is warranted, I will do that, I just don't want to rush him there prematurely over nothing as it's a 4 hour drive round trip and don't want to stress him out unnecessarily. Thanks so much.
