Yes, he loves them. He doesn't like veggies, I can occasionally get him to eat a bite or two of carrot but he's good about his kale and we just introduced collard greens and he really likes those. He ate just about the whole bowls worth today.
That is great --- :)

Hello,

Your dragon is definitely very beautiful! Eventually, he should start to eat more veggies. It takes
them time to start recognizing it as a food source. It's good to hear that he likes the greens though,
that is important!
Did you get the basking temperatures optimal for him now? It sounds like you have his setup all
fixed for him right now. Let us know how he is doing!

Thanks, he's an interesting character. We love the grey/blue on his back. I took out the che and put in a flukers 100watt basking bulb and the powersun 80watt uv bulb to give a wider basking area. The air gets about 95 and his physical rock gets about 105ish. He pooped and it was normal but then had two more instances of just watery drops, basically. He did eat decently yesterday, though and was running around more. So I don't know what's upsetting his stomach, maybe the new greens, or the waxworms(which I've stopped giving for now) or the red wigglers we tried yesterday (two little ones, nothing since)

The photo is the second time he "pooped". He's acting normal so I'm not super super concerned but I don't like it when he does that, especially more than once a day.

Hello,

The temperatures sound good to me, so he should be staying warm enough then. At least he is
active right now & still eating.
Those urates really look pretty normal. He is well hydrated & it is pretty common for them to excrete
urates a couple of times per day, sometimes more, depending on food intake.
Be sure the greens are washed well before he eats them to make sure there aren't residual pesticides
or chemicals on them.
Keep us posted on him!

He's still active and eating well. I got home from a concert last night and he was wiggled between his water bowl and the glass, which he has NEVER done. I thought he had passed, but he was just sleeping. But still, he's never done that before.

Every other poop is those watery droplets. It'll be a normal one, then then the next one is watery and hardly anything, then a normal. I am washing his greens, as well.

Hello,

It sounds like he is doing good, though he is worrying you to death right now.
At night, be sure to take out the water dish or at least pour the water out in the case he falls
asleep in it so he doesn't drown.
If his urates are still hard you can add in some canned pumpkin or sweet potato a few times
per week to try & give him some extra fiber in his diet in case he isn't eating enough vegetation.

They haven't been hard lately, kinda a soft-firm sometimes or when it's the hardly anything watery poop, they're also watery. He's good about his greens, thankfully. Loves his kale and collard greens. I hadn't even thought about the concept of him drowning in his bowl, he always goes straight to his hammock when it's bedtime and sleeps sprawled out on that. I don't keep much in it, it's a wider bowl and the side is barely a half inch, I believe and I don't fill it all the way up, but ill definitely start taking it out at night. He is shedding again, just started officially peeling, but I don't think that really has to do with anything.

Hello,

That's great he is eating his greens regularly. It would just be a good idea to make sure there
isn't any water left in there at night. Then it also keeps humidity down overnight also.
Shedding is a very good sign. He may get a little irritable if he has a hard shed. Let us know
how things are going.

His shedding has been relatively easy, he's not very bright and will leave it hanging off of him and manage to get his paws tangled in it or has trouble getting it off his feet so I've had to intervene quite a bit this time around and he's not been irritable, but he hasn't wanted to be out really. But he's almost done, just the top/tip of his head and his eyes, he's been rubbing his face on stuff this morning.

If you bend your finger and offer your knuckle i bet he will use you for a scratching post. My girlfriend loves when hers does that. :)

Yeah, he's been using my hand as a scratching post.😅 I hold him in my hand and initially start brushing away stray she'd and then he'll wildly drag his face all over my hand.😂 but it must be leaving him feeling not too well, he's just been laying around mostly and not wanting to be out. But he's still eating good, which is good.

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?
