i think that it is very under fed and underwatered so i am going to move the mount to be in shell made by two old palm fronds and see if i can get closer to nature with a "pocket" to hold not just moisture but leaf litter and bugs

Love the color! For the "underfed" issue, consider a large pinch of time-release fertilizer. Probably more reliable than bugs...

And I think for your next mount, you need to climb up on top of a telephone pole, and get one going on top of the post, like I've seen pictures of in Brazil. It would be AWESOME!
