Color change

Postby MamaBlue3 » Fri Aug 16, 2019 4:32 pm

So my 7-8 week old beardie was cold for 2 days due to a lighting issue which I have since fixed. She also didn’t eat for that time but at a superworm and 2 good size crickets a few minutes ago. However she has went from a light sandy color to dark brown. She has been under the basking light at 105 degrees all day. Will this reverse itself? I know it is her trying to warm up but i hope it’s not permanent.

She is digesting her food and the dark means shes absorbing the heat

Are you sure your temp is 105? If she stayed under all day I'd question if that's the actual temp. What are you using to measure your temps?
