Beardie is glass dancing badly and not eating

Postby Brittneesmile » Thu May 09, 2019 10:46 am

I made a vet appointment for Tuesday, it’s the earliest they can see her but I’m freaking out right now.
She won’t eat and has barely eaten for almost two weeks now. Occasionally she will eat a little bit of arugula and a super worm or two but hasn’t the past few days. I thought she just wanted other feeders so I got 4 different kinds and she still isn’t interested. She glass dances and freaks out as soon as I put her back in her tank and have to leave to go somewhere. Her colors are bright and happy, no black beard or stress marks. She pooped in her tank twice and she literally never does that. She always poops in the bath.
She’s very active and running around the house a bunch.
She’s 2 years old.
She’s in a 40 gal till her new tank arrives in the mail. It’s 80 on the cold side and 95 in her basking area. She has a repti sun 10.0 t5 uvb.

Could she be about to lay?

Is the uvb on the screen or inside the enclosure? And how big is she?

The uvb is on the screen. I read that the one I got can be put on the screen still because it’s more powerful.
She’s 2 and pretty big.

It depends on the hole of the screen it its a fine mesh it should be on the inside --- even tho its a stronger bulb that fine mesh is still gonna block out the rays unless its really close to her / him- it should be around 10-11 inches from the basking spot--

Hi there, those are classic signs of needing to lay and you don't really need a vet. You wouldn't believe how often they don't even know if a dragon is carrying eggs. :?

Set up a lay box and put her in for several hours a day. A female may act in quite a frantic manner at egg laying time but it's normal. Here's a video [ not mine ] of how to set up a good laybox.

Completely agree was going to post the exact thing. So here's a x2 to this advice.

She just pooped only urate with some goo. Is that also apart of it?
