I haven't seen any that lose control of their tail, but this is what I was told by a breeder. He said he sees it mostly in diurnal animals that lack what I mentioned before. Also other causes of floppy tail could be genetic. Maybe that is why some still get it even with proper supplementation. Much how some animals just don't ever lay good clutches, or any at all. Cases like those can be inherited.
:I've hatched out dozens of cresteds.
:My animals are provided with ample food, calcium, supplements, climbing space and even UVB lighting. Hatchlings are housed separately.
:I've had two animals develop FTS despite all this. These animals also have tons of things to climb on.
:Also, they do not lose control of the tail. It gets weak at the base. So the tail is likely to flip over the animal's head, especially if it's facing downward.
