Hello,

Mango is super cute & the name is perfect, too!
I hope his tail sheds for him, soon. I"m sure that he will do well for you.
How is the lighting coming along for him?

Thanks we SCORED super huge on this deal for him. It was a God thing on how it worked out for us getting him.
The lighting I think is pretty good.
150 watt bulb for the basking area to a hot enough temperature I believe.

I thought he had a contusion or something on his chin. Till I asked my wife about it, she said she touched his chin with a blueberry 😂

UPDATE!

So we shortened the name to zubaia (queen of dragons) and we call her zuzu. She is doing a really great job of eating.

We have crickets and wax worms and some dubia roaches. She just shedded again and is working on that. She has started letting us pick her up a little bit in the cage and has a fat belly everyday. Thanks a million for everybody's help.

One more question though. I will post a picture but these little black fuzzy worm-like creatures keep popping up in the cage that we keep the food in. Is this some kind of life stage of one of the worm or something?

That looks like a dermestid beetle larva. They are often used as cleaner crew for bug colonies and are completely harmless.
Good to know.
I’m pretty sure we had some of those in our last batch of Dubia, Mango snarfed one up that was about this size.

Hello,

Oh ok, so Zubaia is a leatherback! That is a really cool name.How is he doing today?
Yes, those are very common worms, so no worry they aren't poisonous at all.
That is so funny, blueberries can definitely stain their scales to where it looks like blood!
