[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

The past week my bearded dragon hardly ate, stayed in mainly one spot, and went to sleep early. Today she ate a little but but now she is running around the viv going crazy. She even cut her foot on some of the grapvine :( So I took pretty much everything out of the viv to prefent further injury. Now what do I do?!?!?!?!?

Hi there, she may have eggs so set up a laybox. A medium plastic tote with about 10-12" of dampened sand or sand/topsoil mix. Pile it high on one side and start a tunnel . Or you can put a large upside down shoebox [ or similar box ] with one end cut out over the sand and start a " cave " in the box.

Good for you to get that together , looks like she wants to dig already ! Actually you need about 5-6X as much soil, then put the shoebox upside down over top of it, like a cave with the soil packed inside. Here's a video on youtube, start around the 2 minute mark and you'll see how the guy adds the shoebox.
