Ok so that is good- is the hump/ bump getting bigger? You may need to get him into a reptile vet---- heres a website to find one -- if your in a small area / town type in a bigger cities website closest to you
www.arav.org
in the meantime I want Tracie to take a look to see what she thinks
His tail looks good - its thick / fat
@Drache613
It's not a hump as such ,rather than his spine sloping down into his tail , his spine seems to stop in front of his legs then suddenly slope down into his tail.I ve looked at old pics and it's always been a bit like it.

Ok yeah I was noticing that too -- is it a possible injury from when he was a baby -- I will have the vet tech take a look at it -- I have flagged her

Hello,

Your lighting should be good! So his spine has always had a slight slope to it since he was younger?
If it seems like it has possibly gotten a bit worse, you could consider getting him on a liquid calcium for
maintenance, in case he needs a boost for awhile.
How is he doing today?

Hello,

That's great, hopefully that will help out. How are you trying to get the liquid calcium into him?
It is usually easiest to use either a plastic dropper dripping it onto the end of his nose.
Has he been basking for most of the day? You could also drip some of the calcium onto his
greens or insects, if that might be easier for him.

Hi,since his cage adjustments he has just sat in his house with his head sticking out, I got a little calcium liquid in him and he came out for some food which I dusted with calcium powder but he is nt very lively.

Its the weather and that time of year --- mine are doing the same thing sitting in their caves/ hides w/ the head poked out --- Hiccup came out yesterday and basked and I gave him a bath offering water and getting a weight on him - he has lost 2 grams from about 3 weeks ago - Blaze the same thing - hes lost 4 grams - since I had him out 3 weeks ago - just keep an eye on him and if hes eating and moving around he should be fine --
