 Zil might be constipated ??

Well now Zil looks very bloated I think he might be constipated. He goes to the bathroom very infrequently and its been at least a week now and I’m getting worried. He still eats and acts fine but can someone PLEASE tell me what to do about this ?? I read giving them a warm bath helps but then others say that’s the worst thing to do. I really don’t know how to help him...actually I think it’s a female. Please any ideas would be greatly appreciated !!!

Yes she ( I think Its a female ) Finally had a very big B M on fri night and now she’s been hiding for 2 days. Hasn’t eaten anything at all
I was sooo relieved when she went and now I don’t understand. She ate every day even when she didn’t go and now isn’t eating and only came out briefly today and went back in hiding??? Is this brumation ?

Well, she shouldn’t be brumating unless the temps have changed a bunch in the last few weeks. What are the temps in your terrarium? If she was having trouble passing bowel movements, maybe it means the temps weren’t quite warm enough?

Thank you for always responding to me you’re right not too many people apparently are monitoring this site. I rarely get any answers. Anyway her temps were a little low but she was use to that for 10 years before I got her but I did bring them up to 120’s on hot side and around 80 ’s on cool side. But I noticed she WOULD NOT BASK. She stayed on the bottom of tank so I felt she was too hot. And not use to that high temp so I adjusted them back to where they were around 110 and 75. She then basked again etc. now I’m raising them again to see what happens. It’s been 3 days of no eating and only poked her head out once yesterday and went right back to her hide I’m really concerned ???

Mine basks like right next to his basking spot, not directly under it. Try and keep the temps up to where they should be. 3 days isn’t very long, but keep an eye on her. If she starts to lose a lot of weight, then I’d start to be more worried. Maybe try offering some flowers to entice her to eat? If I put dandelions or rose petals in my Uro’s food bowl, he goes NUTS. He will even climb onto my hand just to eat them, and my Uro is a very skittish little guy. Maybe if she eats a few petals it’ll help stimulate her appetite.

 Zil might be constipated ??

Hi well Zil hasn’t gone to the bathroom again since oct 18th. I’m realizing that I get myself crazy over this but this seems to be a routine since I have him so I won’t get crazy! I do have a question though. She LOVES dry lentils. Is it ok to always keep a small dish in her cage ?? Also do you know if they are constipating ? She eats very well every day but I don’t know if I should let her have lentils every day also split peas and white millet???? I had a dish with all three in her tank but I stopped cause I don’t know if any of those are bad for her or constipating ?????

I thought I reposted but I dont see it so I’ll do it again. My Uro again hasn’t had a BM since oct 18. I’m not freaking out as this seems to be a pattern since I have her . I feed her well, she eats every day. Anyway my question is she LOVES lentils I usually keep a small dish with lentils , split peas and some white millet, but she ravishes the lentils. Are lentils constipating ??? Is it ok to keep any or all 3 of those things in her tank all the time????
