[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

im just getting used to my new dragon i've had him 5 week or so now. everything seems ok he eats well even his greens and he will pinch my grapes if hes out while im have them lol,yesterday i noticed his skin is starting to flake a little so presume he is starting to shed 9 hes approx 10 month old) but today he has gone off his food and is staying on the cooler side of his viv and is quiet listless is this normal ?
his temps are 80 f and 95f temps taken by 2 glass temp gauges the type for in aquariums one under his heat lamp one on other end of viv when cleaning him out i take the gauges out and temp drops so i know they are working

when they shed they often get lethargic and loose their appetite- this is completely normal. Just keep an eye on him and see if he perks up after the shed- give him plenty of baths to help the shedding along :D
