Stressed.

Postby Amandal143 » Tue May 22, 2018 5:02 am

My Beardie Peter and I had to do a sudden move due to a domestic violence situation. He hasnt moved since Sunday(05/20/18).He also has a black neck. He is breathing and alive just wont get up and move around. Is it normal?

Most definitely, Bearded dragons can stress during a move. Give Peter some time to get used to his new surroundings. He will come around. Here is a link to help explain things, and to ease your mind.

I'm glad to hear you were able to get out of a bad situation. Is his beard still dark black? Can you post some photos of him? You can upload photos here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and post them to your thread using the XIMG button when you reply. The lethargic behavior may be stress related but a black beard for an extended period may indicate stress or another underlying issue. It's not usually good when they are like that for several days.

The photos have to be under 8mb to upload. You can try a separate hosting site like tinypic and post a link. That way everyone can see and chime in with some thoughts. You can send them to me by email by clicking the envelope icon below my username.

He has been squirming across the living room floor today and a little bit in the tank last night. He also drank a little water today for the first time.

The black beard indicates some stress but he looks pretty healthy overall which is good. Hopefully once he settles in that will start to fade.

Today he made some progress for the better. He is moving around, latching on to his log again and just having fun. His neck is slowly fading it's now a light grey hopefully it will be completely gone in a few more days. we did have a issue where while he was in the stress stage where i didnt realize there was a super worm in his cage and it started eating Peter once i seen the worm it was rempved he was hiding under the carpet :( but he is healing from that pretty good. Keeping it clean and a light coat of ointment to help the healing process. He is slowly starting to eat again but we discovered he isnt a fan of broccoli lol he kept spitting it back out at me lol

I'm glad to hear he's doing better! I haven't had luck with broccoli either. Just keep offering different things and eventually you'll find some hits. Squash is really popular with my dragons. I've had good luck with chopped green beans, sweet potato shavings, collard greens, and kale. Limited success with chopped bell pepper, turnip greens, and dandelion greens (depends on mood).

My Marta loves her dandelion greens, and her yellow dandelion flowers even more! I've tried offering her squash, but she wouldn't take it. Also, I'm glad you found that superworm! Hopefully Peter will be back to his old self soon! :D
