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.

Have you tried Dubai roaches, my big boy stopped eating crickets and would not eat nothing until I found Dubai roaches

Please go over your lighting setup. If uvb and basking are not on point they will have all manners of problems including but not limited to not eating.
What type of uvb are you using, how old it, how far from his basking (in inches).
What are you using for a basking bulb, what are the basking temps and how are you taking them. Are you using ANY colored bulbs? (If so please turn them off immediately they damage the eyes).
Please attach photo's of your setup especially the lighting if you can.
