Darkening Up, Possibly due to over heating *RESOLVED

Postby Hammie2496 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 6:22 pm

My beardie, chroma, had his tanks hot side heat to 108°f today for maybe 10-15 minutes, I was able to catch it but not after I noticed he had was completely dark. I took him out and shut all lights off immediately, it looks like his basking light came off the stand and landed on the top of the tank 6 inches from where he was laying. I did give him a bath but I'm worried he might have gotten over heated big time from this incident.like I said I did give him a bath right afterwards and let him bask in natural sunlight before putting him back. My husband fixed the light so it wouldn't fall again. Any thoughts? Also he is shedding, so I'm hoping it is from that and not the light incident.

Before (aka this morning):
• yes he is hugging a worm, he wont eat this worm he keeps thinking it's his friend....... sadly it didnt make it through the heat incident.

Though it wasn't the best for him, it shouldn't harm him.
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
