Female. I'd find and make a vet appointment for that eye.

What is your supplement schedule and when are you dusting the feeders? Are you dusting before you feed or before you put the feeders in the cricket enclosure?

Basking temp is too hot. Aim for 87-89*F at the basking branch.

You did not mention any UVB lighting... Do you have a UVB light source? If so, how old is the UVB bulb and what kind is it?

Bulge doesn’t apply to veilds. We can just look at coloration and casque shape/size and have a pretty good feel for the sex, been doing this for a while...
