2 month old bearded dragon won’t eat

Postby jess3103 » Wed Jan 06, 2021 2:08 am

I’m not sure if his eyes are sunken or not and i’m really struggling to get him to eat more than a few bugs a day if that, i got him 18 days ago and he’s been comfortable with me and sleeping on me at bedtime. He’s also basking normally, drinking normally and shed last just less than a week ago. I’m really panicking that he’s ill or gonna get ill. [Click image to enlarge]

This is him this morning

Make sure these two things are up to correct/ par they are the most important things in the tank
UVB NO coils a TUBE fixture and its properly placed in the tank w / distance as well crucial
Basking temps are 105-110 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer NO stick ons they are inaccurate
He/ She will go thru relocation stress not eating as much he needs to acclimate to his tank and surroundings if all is correct about the above lighting etc his appetite will pick up -- if not he will stop eating -- make sure your feeding salads as well every morning and dusting the insects w/ calcium d3 and vitamins w/ beta carotene --- calcium dr 5 x per week once per feeding and vitamins 2 x per week once per feeding --- if you have any more questions please ask
