    I was trying to feed my 1 year old Colombian Tegu today, only to find her not interested in eating. She looks lethargic and I noticed her back feet looks swollen.

    Had this brom in my first viv for about a month now, and its slowly starting to die off, and I'm not sure why. There seems to be plenty of water in the middle of the plant. And this is another brom that is right next to it, in literally identical conditions.
