Baby too chubby?

Updates from my last post first; he has pooped a few times since my last post, stress marks have lightened up a lot. The last poop he made was a little mucussy, still haven’t seen him drink water so been misting him occasionally. Been trying not to bother him too much other than putting food in as he doesn’t really like when I’m around yet. Just wondering if he’s just normal growing or if he looks too chubby or impacted?

Please start hand taming him --- get some small super worms and some BSFL www.symtonbsf.com I would order some medium size and hand feed him -- you need to start working w/ him so he gets used to the hand in the tank - maybe hold him in the tank for a few minutes each day -- is he licking the water off his nose when you mist him? Also are you feeding salads every morning? You can use the BSFL to lure him to the salad bowl -- https://www.amazon.com/MACGOAL-Rept...uGQB&pd_rd_wg=tLkwE&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mr_hp_d

I do give him salads every morning, kale and bell pepper or kale and carrot, yesterday tired putting some banana and then some kale in my hand to see if he would come to be but he just puffs up. He doesn’t lick the water off either..

This mornings poop all wet :/
His poop looks good -- how long have you had him? He will go thru relocation stress so his eating will be off- if he stops eating all together thats not good -- and other issues could be going on -- if his UVB is good NO coils please and good surface basking temps taken w/ a digital probe thermometer you should be fine - it may take some time for him to adjust but those things I mentioned will help

Okay thank you so much, your comments have really helped. I’ve had him for about a week and a half. I have the bar light and I cut the screen out like you suggested before, and basking temps have been good. I gave him a little soak earlier and he drank a bunch of water from there so I feel better about that.

Ok good just watch he doesnt aspirate the water -- if he is gulping it down you might want to pull him up so he takes a breath and slows him down -- so did I post distance for you as well ? If all is well he should adjust and acclimate to his tank -- his appetite will pick up --

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
