I only offer a couple of hornworms at a time if they are fully grown (they get pretty large and filling). Maybe offer them a few times a week while they're fresh.

Hello,

I hope he is doing well today.
If the hornworms are decent sized, just a few per day should be plenty. Is he eating any greens
right now?

It doesnt matter --- a couple 2 is good -- they are good for hydration --- is he eating other staples like crickets or dubias-- they should be fed a couple of times per week since he is an adult and you should be feeding greens everyday ---- like collard mustard or turnip greens along w/ some squash like yellow or zuchinni or butter nut --- serve raw not cooked --- green beans can be fed --- fruit once in awhile it has too much sugar--- do you have the nutrition website?

My dragon has been acting very aggressive as of late he is sprinting around his cage head bobbing at the glass and glass surfing I understand he might be seeing his reflection but he has never done this before he is 4 years old and shouldn’t be going through puberty anyone know any reason why he would be acting this way when I try to pet him he puffs his beard out and he would never do that before and his beard is mostly black when he is inside his cage

Sometimes they just get in a bad mood. Hopefully that will subside quickly. The poop just looks like urate with some extra water passing through with it. Not unusual in itself, especially if it's a second (or more) poop of the day.

My dragon has been doing this every day or almost every other day [Click image to enlarge]
it was the second poop today the first was normal and the urate looked squishy is he getting too much water not enough water I only give him baths now when he steps in his poop in after a couple of weeks another thing I wanted to address was that whenever I take him out of his cage his beard goes to his normal orange color but when he goes back in his cage his beard turns black I measured the temps again and they were 104 higher then last time and I’ve only had the uvb for 3 months is it something else it his cage that is causing the black beard possibly?

Ok it looks like you have done everything we can possibly think of for correcting the poop and behavior- are you still feeding the horn worms 3 times / week --- they are a hydrating worm so its possible they are giving the runny poop- but that would not cause the behavior- is he a he/ or a she? the reflection hes seeing may be causing the behavior - I would take some newspaper or wrapping paper or card board and put on the outside of the tank and see if that gets rid of the black bearding
