Re: constipated bt skink
Actually, a couple of tablespoons every day is a lot for an adult BTS. Most adults eat only a couple of times a week, a tablespoon or two per feeding. It sounds as if he is doing great with veggies, but that he could use more protein in his diet. I'd say a BTS should have 50-60% protein in their diet. Maybe that is why he is hungry enough to eat daily, because he's getting mostly veggies. I'm also surprised he eats crickets! My BTS won't eat them because they are too small and fast. Anyway, try more protein. You can try nightcrawlers and superworms, boiled or plain baked chicken breast, high quality low fat canned cat food, an occassional hard boiled egg. Give him some protein and veggies at every meal.

He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."-Unknown
