Pogo is not eating very much. Maybe a little salad (mustard greens) and yesterday she had 2 hornworms. She also hasn't pooped in over a week. I've given her a couple warm baths and can get her to drink an eyedropper of water occasionally. Basking temp is a good 95-98. Cool end is usually around 80. Her light is an Arcdia T5. I have been using a probe thermometer. Trying to give all the answers I know you all usually ask :) Oh and she turns her nose up at crickets and dubia right now.

So, I see where people talk about giving pumpkin (bought some baby food) and some apple juice to add to water. If she's not taking it voluntarily, exactly how do I go about forcing it on her? Or should I? Today she is pretty dark and thats not normal for her.

You shouldn't force food unless they are really sick and can't/won't eat on there on. Never ever force water, it's much to dangerous.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
