he also seems not wanting to eat as much and his snout seems to stick out more than it should

Hello,

Do you have any pictures of this that we could see?
Can you review your tank setup with us, such as the type/brand of UVB light, temperatures,
supplementation, etc so we could be sure it is all correct.
Is he eating normally right now?

thanks for responding. he has a reptisun 5.0 in his cage. basking spot around 90 degrees. I feed him around 30 or more crickets a day(since he is only about 8 months old) I also give him reptivite on his crickets sometimes. I couldnt get any photos of blitz write now

Are you dusting those crickets w/ calcium D3 ? The vitamins should be given 2 x per week!

yes its with D3. also he got his appetite back, I also got a quick look inside of his mouth and it looks like he chipped a tooth in the very back
