This one doesn’t say t5. So is it the wrong one?

I'd go with this one, this kind is the one i usually buy except instead of 22" I buy the 46" ones.

Plus you can know for sure its a t5 with this one rather than the other, since if it isnt you'll have to mount it inside.

Hello,

That is very odd you haven't noticed him passing the tooth! Honestly, I am not sure if his
system would break it down or not, but maybe over time.
He is eating & basking normally though?
I am glad you are getting a new UVB Light, it is essential for his overall healthy & well being
to have better exposure. Are you going to go with the Reptisun 10 T5 or an Arcadia D3 T5?

If you haven't seen the tooth passed in the poo, enamble on teeth is highly resistant and it's unlikely to have been digested , so it's very likely still lurking in the dragon's GIT somewhere.

I STRONGLY ADVISE a trip to a vet to have xrays taken to determine where the tooth is and what needs to be done - if anything - to deal with it.

Better safe than sorry.

If the vet can't see the tooth in any xrays , it's been passed and not noticed or it's been digested.
