horn worms turn white

i have been buying hornworms for a while and i keep noticing some of the worm turn a more white idk if this is 100% true but they also seem to move less and seem to be less lively i looked it up on google and couldn't find anything on hornworm sicknesses if they are sick how do i prevent it and can my bearded dragon still eat them they come with mulberry paste but i often give them grapes blueberries romane lettuce and asparagus and pretty much anything i would give my bearded dragon

Hello,

I would probably not feed any romaine as it doesn't have enough nutrition for the hornworms.
I would mostly stick with the chow, since it is nutritionally designed for them.
Do you have pictures of them you could post for us?
What temperatures are you keeping them at?

next time i get a batch if any are white i will post a picture but usually at least one or two are white last time they were all babies so i had to grow them they were all normal till the last three for some reason they grew slower i don't think they were white originally but i know by the time they were the last ones left they were (while typing this i just realized they could be shedding cause i've seen then shed pretty often and it would make sense why if a couple look white it doesn't spread) but still were growing at a decent pace and there not completely white either its just a tint but a quite noticeable tint my house stays relatively cold from 70 -95 (there is a wide gradient cause i live arizona and my siblings tend to leave the door open often) but the majority of the time it is 70-80 depending how hot it is outside. and yea i thought so to about the chow is better but my mom says they need variety so i have to give them more (its not worth the argument she doesn't believe any of the petstore people cause they didn't even know correct facts about bearded dragons) are there any specific things that could be as good or beter as the mulberry chow i know they live on tomato plants but from what i've read bearded dragons shouldn't have very much tomato because of the acid. i was wondering if fungus could grow on them i empty there poop daily cause online it says that will cause moisture build up i also remove the vegetables and fruits after one or two days and in arizona it is very dry so i dont think thats the problem but maybe.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
