New baby bearded dragon won’t eat

Postby Jordanr123 » Wed Jun 03, 2020 8:47 pm

Hello everyone, my girlfriend and I recently bought a fancy bearded dragon from petsmart. We got him a 40 gallon tank, a UV light and a heat lamp. His basking area is roughly between 100-105 degrees. Sometimes he will eat, most of the time he won’t. The most he’s ate is 2 crickets, and 5 worms in one day. And on a separate day 3 days later he’s had 1 worm. I’m very concerned, we’ve had him for 10 days and is just reluctant to eat. Can someone please help with what to do?

Thank you!

The UVB your using is a coil or tube? Its not uncommon for them to not eat alot as he is going thru relocation stress but he should not quit eating all together please go over your husbandry -- brand and bulb of the UVB and where is it on top of the tank or inside it- basking temps what are they are how are you taking them - NO stick ons they are inaccurate -- the lighting is the most crucial thing in the tank ---
