Nora is about 14 months old. She has been a bit crankyer lately but over all seems healthy. She is not a fan of veggies but we try to give give them to her everyday. Her favorites are Silkworms, Hornworms, and Dubias. She will tolerate squash, greens, and berries. I just wanted to make sure this poop looks ok. The poop was well formed but the Urate is very runny. Im wondering if she is over hydrated.

Hello,

That does look pretty watery there. What fluids are you giving her? No blood or anything. Silkworms & hornworms are high in water content, so those are most likely the culprit of the watery urates.
How often do you give berries? If fruit is given too often that can sometimes cause looser stools.
She is a beautiful girl!

Thank you....She is very sweet. The only fluids she gets is in her food.

She gets alot of Bugs. She will eat as many as you give her. We provid Dubias, Hornworms, and silkworms. I get 50 silkworms every other week, 24 Hornworms a month, and a couple hundred medium dubias.

We offer her a salad of Arugula or Swiss chard, acorn squash, sweet potatoe, and a couple blueberries with a wiggly worm topping. She tries to pick all the worms off the top. Sometimes she will get a bite of salad with the worm. She is so lazy when it comes to her salad if We want her to eat it we have to hand feed it to her. She will just open her mouth and let us put the greens in. I can almost feeling her roll her eyes at us. She will eat max 10 small pieces of squash and sweet potatoe.

I have considered holding off on all Bugs until she eats a good salad but then she makes me feel bad.

Thank you for the help.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
