The lower portion of the leg below the joint looks kind of swollen at that angle - does it look swollen to you compared to the other leg? It could just be an awkward angle in the picture, do you have another picture of the leg close up? If it is swollen, it could be an injury or potentially something more serious like gout. But again, I can't really tell for sure if there's swelling by that pic due to the angle.

Hello,

I agree, the yellow stool is most likely going to be caused by the squash intake, it looks pretty
normal to me.
How high is his branch? It's possible he could have hurt himself by falling somehow. Your T5
tube bulb by Reptisun is very good, but definitely remove the cover because it is blocking virtually
all of the UVB. Once it is removed, the T5 should be around 10 or so inches from him, alongside
of his basking light for maximum exposure.
The calcium needs to be given daily. So, choose one meal a day to dust his insects really well
& the rest of the feedings wont need any dusting. As a youngster 4-5 days a week for calcium is
a must!
He is definitely a little cutie.

Thanks!
Here's some more pictures. I dont think its swollen. His legs are always kind of outward and oddly positioned. I have never heard of BD gout....to Google I go.

My daughter did just tell me she has seen him jumping off his log, though.

Thanks yall for the help!


Oh okay those pics are more clear, I don't see any swelling! Tracie had some great input regarding UVB and calcium so I'd follow her advice and just keep a close eye on your little guy's leg and behavior. If it seems like he's falling and hurting himself, I'd try rearranging his tank. Best of luck :)

What a cutie! My boy, Ziggy, loves squash and he can get some yellow-tint to his stools when he eats a good amount. As for the leg, I feel like he is just comfy. Here are some pictures of Ziggs doing this since he was a little baby- still does it today when he is just hanging out! Obviously if he is jumping or falling of things it may be a different story :)

Omg thank you!!! As a new pet owner, everything worries me! You have no idea how much you all helped! Sounds like a few changes and hes all good. I actually used to give him dusted crickets every time I fed him. But then I got worried that I was over using the calcium. Got to find that balance!
