Unformed Poop

My 6 month old bearded dragon Gus has had unformed poop for about 2 weeks now. He poops every couple of days which, from my understanding, is pretty standard. His appetite, basking behaviors, and sleep schedule is completely normal. When I take him out for enrichment and bonding time, he explores normally, doesn't hide or run away, and seems energetic and normal.

I'm not too concerned (unless I should be) because I know he doesn't show any other symptoms of bad health, but I'm wondering if this is something I should get looked at anyways. I'm also curious if there are any home remedies or other things I can try to get his poop back to normal.

If they eat a lot of greens that can happen as well. If you're worried you can have a fecal test done but it's not that uncommon for a dragon that eats a lot of greens.

What is he eating? When Figment eats a lot of dubias, his poo would be more of a "mound" than a "log" and I was told this was perfectly fine.

Check basking temps------ w/ a digital probe thermometer and the UVB --- should be a long fixture NO coils

Silkworms too, apparently, if you either feed a bunch or feed jumbos. I notice Ardie always has a (very wet) mound instead of a neat log if I give him lots of silkworms (or 2-3 super huge ones). :lol:

I guess basically, what are you feeding him?
