    He really seems to be enjoying his honey baths. He is totally relaxed there.
    I don't know much about his siblings, I know that he definitely has one, exactly the same morph, super snow raptor as well. I can ask the breeder if he still has him. I don't think this is genetic issue though, yes he seems to be smaller in general, but I think he is this small because he was never a huge eater. Not sure about the expression

    Early in the development of the super snows there was a tendency for some of them to be pretty small. I produced one that was definitely smaller than average, though I don't have any weights recorded. I kept her as a pet and ultimately sold her to someone who really wanted her as she was and did not plan to breed her.

    GU has "misbehaved" this very same way in the past. Ultimately it gets fixed or fixes itself.

    I force fed him a roach today. Held him and used my index finger to open his jaw. Then I shoved a freshly shed roach to his mouth. I managed to do this only once though. I will try tomorrow again. Is it possible that he is brumating? He is about 13months old, male.

    Iīve been force feeding him for about 2 weeks now. Usually about 1 superworm every 3 days. Today he ate 2 superworms and one mealworm. Also, this morning he pooped. He is making a weird noise when he poops. I think all of them does it, but not as loud as him. I grabbed the fresh poop and ran to herpetologist to have it examined for parasites. My wallet is still crying. I will have the results on friday. Also he gained 1 gram! He is 42 grams now.. pretty bad for an adult but at least he doesnīt weight less this time. For comparison, the 6 month old female I bought recently is already almost 70 grams.

    Was his fresh poop dry?

    Maybe this male is genetically small?

    Let us know what his fecal found.

    Well he might be genetically small, but not THAT small. He is a bit on the skinny side as well. I got the results today, he's clean. I think he may be just dormant. But now once I started to force feed him, he is not lethargic anymore. He became much more active and is visibly looking better. Today he got 2 superworms, coated in vitamins (with D3)
    Yeah and the poop wasn't dry, it looked totally normal.

    Good on "normal" moist poop!

    It's best to lightly dust the feeders with supplements, just like "a sprinkling of powdered sugar" on a cake.
