Constant orange urate. Not white once.

Hello,

You are exactly right, you can overhydrate them by adding too much water to their greens, veggies,
etc & their urates will be more runny.
They are all different but the main portion of his urates are white with some orangish to them. It could
just be the insects, or just how his body processes calcium or other vitamins.
Ok, not problem, a lot of them do like the mealies so you can continue to give those. Does he like the
black soldier fly larvae?

Ok good to hear. I'm thinking you are right and it is just the way his body processes food because he had the orange urate when we received him even.
He does like the soldier fly larva if there are no dubias in front of him. I've come to this routine and it seems to work. In the morning he gets his salad. He doesn't get any larva until he eats some of that. Then after that he doesn't get any dubias until he eats some larvae. I work 3rd shift so I check on him a few times a day to feed him. It seems to be working well and he is gaining aprox 5g a day though I don't know how lol. He's growing so quickly!

Hello,

Wow, he sure is shedding, I'm sure he is miserable! It looks like he has a sweater on.
I think he will be just fine! Is he eating much right now, with his shedding going on?
That's great he is eating his greens, it's hard to get them in a habit of eating them on a
regular basis!
Keep us posted on him.

Hello,

They just like to cause trouble, always keeping us on our toes worrying over them.
I think it is just his system, so just do your best, keep him hydrated to flush his system out
often & he should be fine.
They love their insects, absolutely. Hopefully he will eat more greens as he gets older.

Hello,

Definitely let us know how things are going!

Tracie
Will do. Thanks! I actually do have 1 more concern and it's probably nothing but he has 1 spike that is out of place and not symmetrical to the other side of his face. Please let me know if this is abnormal.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
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.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
