[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]
Hello im quite worried about our dragon hes about 2yrs old but we have had him 3/4 month.
He is off his food and quite dopey... Our main concern is he has gone a white/grey colour around his month and down his neck.
He had a bath on thurday and had a nice big poop lol,
90 in cooler end 100+ hot end, Any help please as we seem to very lacking in our area where any vets will see him.
He refuses to eat crickets so lives on greens/meal worms with the odd wax worm.
Not much else i can think of any help plz

When you say 100+ on the hot side and 90 on the cooler side, how much above 100 is it on the hot side? What watt bulb are you using and how big is your tank?
I use a 100 watt bulb in a 40 breeder tank in the summer when its hot, but since its been cooler, I have been turning on a separate 75 watt bulb on the cooler side of the tank to maintain that 105 hot side and 85 cool side, but these past few days on the east have been quite warm, so that is when I just use the 100 watt bulb again. But by this weekend when the temperatures drop I am sure I will have to use that 75 watt bulb again.
Also my beardie does not drink water in the tub or his bowl, so since we got him I have a squirt bottle that I would mist him off slightly, so he is now use to it. A few times during the day I put the squirt bottle in front of him and squirt his nose and he will sit there and lap up the water as I continue to squirt it. Now he loves his water:-) He also likes it when he is in the tub and I dip my finger in the water and let it fall on his nose, he will lap it up that way too. Makes me feel so much better especially sitting under the light all day!
