He is from the 2011/12 season .
Try crushing the mazuri pellets or soak before feeding - this guy was spoilt on fresh grass ( lawn ) and other green !!
Cactus - prickly pear pads ( spineless variety ) are good once a week
Dandelion .......... etc are good for feeding too .
I seldom feed him mazuri as not cheap to feed a whole horde of them .
He has his last worming done after Christmas . ( worming is important if they are allowed to roamed outdoor even not that often )
P/s you must be wondering how I know this guy from me - the 2 orange dot ( nail polish ) and the black marking 1 on his back !!
One other thing pls do not mix with other sp for now - thought you told my friend about quarantine for a while before introducing to your other pet ?
But in picture I see a sulcata in the same enclosure with the R ?
And many in this forum do not encourage mixing different sp in same enclosure !!

But hey you had everything so maybe you not as beginner as I might think , as for name I never really give them name especially for younger one that I might release for sale - but most of my breeder I got name or at least an id to know them by !!
