I've seen that before but I'm not exactly sure what causes it. Could be slight dehydration. I've read that tinted urate can indicate excess calcium or vitamin supplement but I don't have any facts to back that. Is the tint just a one off thing or has it been occurring for a while?

It's not a one time thing, but it isn't always there in the poop, it's just reoccurring sometimes. Sp, no idea then...?

What is your supplement schedule and overall diet? It's probably something dietary and can be fixed rather easily.

I powder the Dubia roaches, super worms and horn worms once every 5 days and vitamin powder every other day.
I only feed one type of live insect a day, but I have to switch it up because my baby gets bored with one thing for whatever reason. And I feed him twice a day, but he's getting kind of fat so I'm trying to cut it down a little.

Oh and for veggies I feed him a mix of mustard greens, collard, turnip, butternut squash, and the occasional red bell pepper.

That sounds pretty good. Those are definitely good veges. What brand of supplements are you using? Does the bottle suggest a schedule? Try the vitamin powder every 3rd day in place of the calcium. I'd offer extra water by dropping a bit on his nose and see if he'll lick it up. Perhaps some extra hydration will help.

Thanks so much for all the suggestions!
I use Rep Cal on both of these, (the calcium and the vitamins). The containers that these come in don't have a recommended schedule, I'm afraid.... I will start the vitamin powder every 3rd day instead, however. I'll also try getting him a bit more hydrated. Thanks so much!

OK. If they don't have a suggested schedule, I'd go with 5 days per week with the calcium and then 2 days per week with the vitamin. That's a pretty often recommended general schedule that should work well.

My 2 year old male dragon has been shedding for 2-3 weeks. I’m worried about it being a stuck shed. I’ve seen on other websites they should not soak and then I’ve seen that they should be soaked. So my question is when should I soak him?
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
