try taking him to a vet, he could be sick, or he could just be getting older, how long have you had him?

im watching him/her closley and realizing first off she hates being in a cage, second of all its too lazy to chase those crickets down, so im no putting her on my bedroom floor, giving her a heat lamp to hang out near and cutting the legs off of the crickets, she/he ate about 10 cricks this way, man this guy or girl is a picky little thing lol, but neither of them like any veggies ive put down for them

how big is the tank it's in? If its a sub-adult or adult it should be in at least a 55 gal for it not to be stressed

well i got her in a 29 gallon tank, and shes about 8.5 inches long now she seems to have plenty of room to run about, and i let her out almost every day to get some excercise. so i hope this will be ok for her till i can set up another 6 ft reptarium for her
