Bloated and not warming up

Postby ModernAlchemy » Mon Mar 18, 2019 11:34 am

So I'm a little concerned about our Stubbs. Normally when I wake up in the morning and come down stairs, she's glass surfing and desperate to be let out to run around the house. Today she wasn't, she was sitting near, but not on her basking ledge, and when I picked her up, she felt bloated and kind of firm - more like a Tom Brady football than a squishy little lizard. She also felt a bit cold. Her temps are fine, she's been eating voraciously, she's pooping almost every day. I'm wondering if she could be full of eggs? I know that even non-breeding dragons sometimes lay eggs. What could be wrong?

*Edit* I should add that she's been shedding for the last few weeks, and she's been struggling with getting it off her body. I've heard that can be an issue, too.

Hi there, it's true that she might have eggs but if she's shedding she may just be puffing up to help her shed. But it doesn't sound as if there's a problem. You can post some pics if you like, her's how : Then use the XIMG to upload them
