Is she ok?

Postby smauglove » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:07 am

hi! I usually just post about Smaug but Im over at my boyfriends house and he has a bearded dragon too named Nova. Nova and Smaug were bought together and they are about the same age. Smaug, looks really big and Nova is very small and fragile.

I was wondering if she is malnourished, if shes okay. her heat is 110 f and uvb is 10.0 ((he has not changed it at all in the span of a year. and im wondering thats why she isnt eating and growing :/))(But ever since she was small she would hardly eat compared to smaug, he eats everything he sees)

Nova looks healthy to me. A bit small, but bright colors and alert and generally looks healthy. Are you using a T5 UVB or a T8? Compact? A T5 would be OK for a year but the others would likely need replacement. It's important to use a high quality UVB light for overall health.

She is a bit thin for sure, other than that looks healthy. If her appetite is low it could be the uvb bulb needs changed as Cooper mentioned. Otherwise Nova is not being fed enough.
