Mines was picky and I had to use to the strawberry banana calcium powder. Did you try that? Also, have you tried dubia roaches? If not I recommend betterthancrickets.com and dubia.com 2nd. I get them a lot quicker with betterthancrickets.com.

I’ve seen people feed dead insects, but they’re not as nutritious (unless you just kill them then feed them, which is just feed love at that point)

And lizards get stimulation by chasing down insects, which is wonderful for their mental health. You’re either gonna have to get used to feeding live or just not get a lizard

Thank you for the input but the issues is not me feeding him live insects,it is that he wouldnt eat it period not by hand and not by chasing Nothing I did would get him to do it.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
