I don’t know wats going on

My bearded dragon won’t move, she won’t eat or drink and she passed something the size of a grape today. Does this look normal [Click image to enlarge]

Hi there,

That looks like a fairly normal poo.

What exactly is going on with your dragon that is concerning you? Has she just been acting weird for today?

Can you post a picture of her and of her setup?

Hey Brandon.
She doesn’t move, eat or drink. I go to her tank everyday and she’s in the same spot and hasn’t touched her food or water. I literally just changed it out. I cut opened her grape sized poop and found out she has been eating the bedding I had in her tank. So I dumped all the bedding and sprinkled some dead bugs on the bottom. My thought was that maybe if she was eating the bedding off the bottom maybe if there was no bedding left she would eat the bugs. [Click image to enlarge]

What are you using for a UVB? Brand and bulb ? Is it a coil?

Hi there,

Thanks for the extra info.

What substrate were you using before? If she was eating it, she could be a bit impacted. I don't see a thermometer. Do you have a temp gun or a digital thermometer with probe end? If so, what is your basking surface temp at?

Can she move her back legs very well?

I would try switching her to a softer diet for the time being to help her pass anything in her system. So nix the dried bugs for now in favor of more soft bodied insects like BSFL, silkworms, hornworms, etc.
