 Uromastys sleeping to much!

My uromastyx isn’t active that much anymore. He is always hiding in his burrow. Also he isn’t eating as much.

could anyone tell me why he is hiding all the time?

Also could you tell me what other things that urmastyx like??

I have fed him

he only seems to like the spinach and lettuce. What other fruits do you suggest that he might like??

Copy and paste the questions from that link, with your answers, so we can properly assess the situation. :)

Welcome. There are many reasons your animal may be less active, but more information will be required in order to try and narrow down the possibilities. Can you please fill out the ’Please Read Before Posting’ questionnaire (posted on the index page) and post your responses to this thread? Try to be as detailed as possible when doing so.

As far as diet goes, I would cut pretty much everything you’ve tried. I would offer curly endive (C. endivia var. crispum), escarole (C. endivia var. latifolia), chicory (C. intybus), orchard grass (buy seeds on ebay to grow on your own), dandelion greens, despined opuntia, winter squash (i.e. spaghetti squash), edible flowers (i.e. pesticide+herbicide free hibiscus, dandelion, nasturtium, hollyhock mallow) and mazuri/ZooMed tortoise diet (ground or lightly soaked). Various other greens, like turnip greens, collard greens, coriander/cilantro, radicchio and arugula can also be fed, but generally speaking should be in less quantity/frequency. Generally speaking fruits, berries and many grain based food items are unnecessary.
