Im not too sure of his age, the pet store said 3 weeks but he seemed wayyy too big for that, I have had him for 3 months after September 8th 2021 comes. Any idea his age? Also just curious about the colors, is anything wrong, he never preforms stressful or defensive behaviors to me, I dont handle him, his urates are black with the white tip, and he eats well.

Could u maybe add a photo of his fecal? Black should not be a color in his fecal. And add a photo of him next to a ruler or ur hand so we can tell how big he is to estimate his age

Colors look totally normal. Most become quite defensive especially about their space. I am betting he was more like 3 months old when you got him because the colors, casque height, and size look more like at least a 6 month old male.

I would fill out the form though that was posted above for you. It looks like you are only using the compact lighting that comes in the double dome cham kit. If this is the case he is high risk for developing MBD due to incorrect UVB lighting. And if he is still in that baby cage it will have to be upgraded to a 2x2x4ft enclosure now.
