HELP!!! beardie not eating or basking!!!!

Postby Bananzayt » Tue May 07, 2019 7:56 pm

My bearded dragon named Sam has recently stopped eating as much as she usually does and has been hiding in her cave instead of basking and we don't know why she originally was in another terrarium with a different bearded dragon and we have since moved her out and do a different one but she still isn't eating I don't know what else could be causing this or if it was even the housing arrangement to begin with please help

Was the other dragon a Male? Could she have eggs in her?
Can you go over her new setup with us?

Yes the other dragon was a male. don't think she's old enough for eggs though she's only 8 months. The new setup is strictly temporary I have a UV light and a basking light and a small I want to say 10-15 gallon tank she has a water dish a rock and matting inside ask for that not much else until I can get to the store tomorrow

Was the Male the same age? Or older. The males are ready much sooner than the females... and they dont wait. There's a good possibility she is gravid. but the behaviour could also be related to the stress of a new environment.

How long have they been separated for?

We just separated them today I was going to wait until I had a better set up but she still wasn't eating and was hiding and it started to stress me out the other dragon was around the same age I don't know if he was exactly because we got him from PetSmart as well as Sam so I'm not sure if they knew the exact age of them but when we got them they said that they were two to three months and we shot them in December
