Is bearded dragon sick?

Postby Lildoobthedragon » Thu Jan 24, 2019 7:38 am

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

My bearded dragon has been acting a little strange recently. He sprawls his entire body on the bottom of my tank and closes his eyes and doesn’t move for long periods of time. His skin is also getting wrinkly around his stomach and he has little black spots on his head. He recently shed his head and is getting ready to shed his body could that be why? He is eating normally (attacking anything I put in tank) and going to the bathroom daily (looks completely normal). I have also given him baths to help with shedding daily for a few days now is that good or bad? I hope he is not sick but this has been weird behavior.

Hello,

Definitely try to post some pictures of his tank setup, along with your dragon, too.
Has his beard been black at all?
Shedding can definitely cause lazy behavior though, but let's go over your tank setup
& nutrition to determine if anything else could be the cause.
