Baby bearded dragon help!

Postby ReptarsMommyT8 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:31 pm

I am new to having a bearded dragon and have had mine for about 2 weeks. They’re currenylu about 3-5 months old. Overall they’ve ate crickets and aren’t too keen to veggies yet. For the first week it ate about 20+ crickets but recently they want nothing to do with them? They’ve been super sleepy and lazy lately. I’ve heard of brumation and it sounds like they’re preparing for it but with it not really eating and sleeping all the time I want to be sure. I’ve given it a few baths to make sure it wasn’t impacted and they’re active/will move when bathed or “woken up”.

Sorry if this post is all over the place I’m just worried for my baby and looking for some answers. :(

Hello,

How many baby dragons do you have & are they housed together?
At 3-5 months of age, they potentially could slow down due to the winter, but, definitely will not
fully brumate like adults do.
Can you review your tank setup for us, such as the type/brand of UVB, supplementation given,
substrate used, temperatures & foods given, just to help us see how things look in the tank.
Are the crickets smaller than the space between the eyes, to avoid impaction?

I have one baby that is living in a 25 gal tank.
Currently using a fluker’s uvb bulb and tank tends to stay around an average 85F. Fed only small crickets, kale, peppers, strawberries, and carrots dusted in flukers calcium powder. Today Reptar has also started hunching his back a little bit.

I saw something about feeding unsweetened apple sauce or prune juice to help with possible impaction as well. Would this be a good idea?

Thank you!
